ENGL 46602 - Project Management

Project management education smartly focuses a great deal on planning and organization, process documentation, and management implementation strategies. However, building effective communication strategies and abilities is often overlooked and incorrectly thought of as a soft skill. In this class, we are going to specifically address the intricacies of communicating effectively in the workplace as an essential skill of project managers. In addition, we will also discuss planning and organizing strategies and models, process documentation, and management implementation strategies and philosophies. We’ll learn about these concepts through hands-on project work that emphasizes individual and collective approaches to project management and gives us a basis for thinking through issues that influence the workplace-from emerging workspace design to the effects of globalization on distributed teams and organizations. Students should leave class with skills and knowledge that they can refer to when asked to lead and participate in a variety of projects in different organizational contexts.
