Project Management Theory I & II

The course will review literature relevant to PM theory, its components and discuss whether PM theory satisfies the requirements of a good and virtuous theory like the Theory of constraints, stakeholder’s theory, and Complexity theory. The course will explore the significance of theoretical knowledge and how PM theory bears significance to academic sciences and industries. The course method will focus on applying organization theory concepts to real-world situations.

Objective: students will develop an understanding of and be able to compare modern and classical PM approaches and microcosmic and macrocosmic perspectives of the PM world. By the end of the course, students should have an improved understanding of what project and program managers do in an increasingly complex and interconnected world, how and why project unusually fail, game changing approaches to improving project delivery performance in a consistent and measurable pattern, and critique existing PM theories and methodologies considering the impact of globalization, projectification, and programification. Students will also learn to apply PM concepts to current workplace issues.
