Project Management

Welcome to the Project Management course at New World University.

Faster, cheaper, and better has become the mantra of not only profit-making organizations seeking to increase market share and profits but also nonprofits and governmental organisations seeking to increase their value to clients. Organisations are increasingly using projects to meet these goals. Projects are goal directed and time framed, and when managed well, projects deliver on time and within budget. This course is about how to manage projects well.

This course relies with our gratitude on edition 1.1 of Project Management from Simple to Complex by Russell Darnall and John M. Preston, and as such its long form readings are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License.
