Pré requis

The course require prior attendance and successful pass in Consulting Skills 2014-15. Other than that the course is not requiring particular technical skills or knowledge that is not expected in a student at university level. A generic ability to use a Windows based PC and MS Project 2010 software is expected (parts covered in Consulting Skills will not be reviewed) Students will be mandatorily required to download MS Project 2010 software from the school network and install it in their personal laptop, that will need to be brought to class. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure this happens and all is working; further notes will be posted in the course intranet page and it is the responsibility of the students to comply with the instructions posted there.

It is important that the student understand that, being the course and the business case in particular, highly interactive in nature, a constant and active participation is demanded together with a hands-on self-driven attitude (both for individual and group work in and out of class sessions). Students that only like theoretical lectures may want to refrain from enrolling; this is not a course for passive participant. Much of the assignment is done in highly participative group-work setting. An inquisitive mindset and some curiosity for the topic would help.

Students must deliver any eventual files and deliverables subject to grading in MS Excel/Word/Powerpoint/Project (Win) and not Apple formats; where necessary student can use school IT facilities as normally available but having only Apple personal laptop is not an excuse. This is also the case for the specialised software (MS Project 2010).

Objectifs du cours

At the end of the course, the course should be able to :
• Understand and be able to apply all the basic concepts of PM together with some advance ones.
• Appreciate the peculiarities of PM in a specialistic business areas
• Master some advanced functionality and use of a professional project management software
• Appreciate the complexities of implementing a PM process in an organisation, in an organised and consistent way, to ensure management control over it
• Lead a project in a competent manner as Project Manager, and/or…
• Participate with success as a contributing member of a project team led by a Project Manager

This course is designed to deepen the students'knowledge of the theory and practice of project management (PM). Building on the basic general project management concepts covered in Consulting Skills 2014-15, this course will allow the students to gain a deeper and specialistic perspective on the subject. Additional concepts, specific to certain industry and/or application, will be presented and contextualized with examples from the real world. A section will introduce a method to implement project management in a company in a coordinate and effective ways, adding to the managerial (vs. technical) practical emphasis of this course; this will be done also drawing from the professional experience of the teacher as an international project manager in various industries. The course is a mix of frontal lectures, interactive discussions and tutorials that will require the student’s active participation. Students will also be required to perform work individually and in group that will likely extend past the end of the taught course. The students will also have the opportunity to learn advanced techniques for using MS Project software for project management using their own laptops.

Some out of class self-learning may be needed, depending of individual backgrounds knowledge and skills.

A hands-on and participative attitude required during the whole course.

Students should make provisions for extended project work outside of class time (in their own time) as this will likely extend beyond the end of the taught course; having to attend other courses or having other course work to do will not be accepted as excuse. Work may well require to work in groups. A presentation to the class (before the end of the taught course) could be required, and in that case it will be part of the project grade.
