Aims and objectives

pre 2020 This unit was called (Project Leadership and Governance) and previous code: INF60017
This unit demonstrates the decisions and tasks that emerge during the phases of the entrepreneurial life cycle. The unit also aims to provide students with an understanding of the importance of developing project management capabilities and competences within an entrepreneurial venture in such a way that it captures organisational learning and influences, as well as establishing a process that clearly aligns project selection to enterprise strategy. The unit will critically analyse personal opportunities to develop entrepreneurial activities within the student’s own role.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Apply critical and advanced knowledge of the role of the enterprising leader in project management

2. Critically evaluate the role of interdisciplinary teams and key stakeholders in supporting projects and operations within the entrepreneurial firm using a group perspective

3. Critically analyse business development and capacity management in response to environmental changes

4. Communicate proficiently project management plans that meet the needs of an entrepreneurial firm in complex environments

5. Apply advanced and coherent knowledge to an applied group research project using project management practice within an entrepreneurial context
