1.0.1 Introduction and learning objectives

Course subject(s) 1. The need and importance of project management

What is a project? What is project management? This module introduces several projects and emphasizes the importance of the early project phases (think before act!) for delivering a successful project. But how is project success defined? How is it achieved? We explain the choice of focusing this course on the front-end phase of projects and the people aspect of projects. Also, we link to a more strategic level: how to select the right projects?

Learning objectives

After this module, you are able to define project success and you know the difference between success criteria and success factors. Also, you are aware of the more strategic aspects of project management.
