Aims and objectives

pre 2020 - this unit was called (Project Quality and Resource Management) and previous code INF80044

 
This unit aims to investigate appropriate project governance structures, its context and dimensions in the overall project success. It also examines the processes required to acquire goods and services, and make effective use of people and other resources involved in a project. To ensure a project is completed successfully, students will be provided with advanced knowledge of project quality management including how to develop a quality management plan, and perform quality assurance and control.
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
 
1. Apply advanced knowledge of project governance structures, industry standards and procedures for project control and practices, dimensions, and issues arising through organisational culture and constraints.
 
2. Critically evaluate the processes required to make effective use of people and other resources involved in a project and be able to communicate principles for improving the quality of resource management.
 
3. Critically evaluate the processes required to acquire goods and services from outside the project organisation and explain principles for improving project procurement.
 
4. Develop and apply knowledge of quality planning, quality assurance and quality control practices to ensure that projects will satisfy the needs for which they are undertaken.
 
5. Communicate effectively as a professional and function as an effective leader or member of a diverse team.
