BADM 605 - Project Initiation

Credit Hours: 3
This course introduces and analyzes the processes required to successfully initiate projects.  The course addresses culture, principles, and basic techniques of project management as it relates to the initiating process group (PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition).  The course reviews the general phases of a project in chronological order, describing how the project phases interrelate.  The course demonstrates the basic tools for this process group, such as Team Charter, Statement of Work, Business Case, and Project Charter.  These tools are introduced by the instructor and subsequently used in student assignments.  The elements of project management critical to the success of a project are also identified and explained.  The principles and tools are integrated and clarified through case studies from a variety of organizational settings and through creation of project management artifacts developed by students working within teams.
