Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give the student the basic collection of skills, tools and methods to be used in managing (information systems) development projects. After the course the student has these basic skills with which to start working in projects in organizations.


The course comprises weekly exercises in a virtual learning environment. In each week, students are expected to prepare one project planning document, e.g. project proposal. Small group discussions concentrate on analyzing problems and challenges in different types of IS/IT projects. The term paper comprises an essay about tasks and responsibilities of a project manager and a self-evaluation of how the student would qualify as a project manager. The exercises
are all made in a virtual learning environment. Students participating in the course should ensure that they reserve sufficient time for making the exercises during the course period.
