ENCE 624 Managing Projects in a Dynamic Environment

Summary

Experience has shown that excellent project managers function at a level well beyond the classic linear mindset of traditional project management. “Simultaneous managers” subscribe to the rational and scientific approach but also adopt a new mindset of flexibility, one of expecting goals and means to be resolved simultaneously and interactively rather than sequentially. This course examines the 9 principles simultaneous managers use interdependently, and presents a theory of project management that is intellectually rigorous and consistent with pragmatic knowledge.
