Course Description

Leading and Managing Projects – Level 9

IBAT College, Dublin

Poor planning leads to poor performance. Project management skills ensure time and money is saved, improves communication and ultimately leads to better decisions being made.

This standalone postgraduate module is ideal to study individually to gain specialist academic, professional and technical knowledge and skills in project management. It also provides a flexible progression route where you can combine with other qualifications to complete an MBA.

Specifically, the aim of the course is:

  • To demonstrate self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems and to apply the principles and practices of project management critically and autonomously at professional level.
  • To deal with complex issues analytically, systematically and creatively, make evaluative judgements in the absence of complete data and communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

Upon the successful completion of this module, the student should be able to demonstrate the ability to:

  • Demonstrate a systematic, extensive and comparative knowledge and understanding of a number of advanced and emerging issues in project management as a whole and its links to specialist aspects and the potentially positive contribution that intervention can make to aid an organisation’s ability to achieve and sustain competitive advantage through effectively managing change and embracing  innovation;
  • Critically evaluate external and/or internal influences that impact upon an organisation’s ability to serve and bring about outstanding customer service, product and service innovation.
  • Apply contemporary project management techniques and tools effectively to progress projects from initial idea to the presentation of persuasive, pertinent and actionable reports.
  • Demonstrate a systematic, extensive and comparative knowledge and understanding of a number of advanced and emerging issues in research methods and project management techniques and their relevance to different projects; data collection and handling, evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of each and identification of the circumstances in which they might be used.
