Brief Handbook Description: Projects are initiated to deliver specific objectives and outcomes. This unit of study builds on material introduced in Project Initiation and Scope focusing on fitness for purpose organisational benefits. It is concerned with the practices required to ensure that specific project objectives are met, the project is successfully delivered and is accepted by key stakeholders.

Specifically, the unit aims to introduce students to the management of projects ethos, implementing strategy through projects, collective leadership, institutional project work, decision-making and cognitive biases, innovation, technology, governance, early project warning signs, value optimization, and stakeholder dynamics.
