CNIT 55200

Information Technology Project Management

Explores the necessary skills and knowledge to successfully initiate, plan, manage, control, and report on information technology projects. Special emphasis is placed on learning the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and its practices concerning integration management, scope management, time management, cost management, quality management, human resource management, communications management, risk management, and procurement management. Practical examples are used to demonstrate the concepts and techniques, plus hands-on experience is received by working on a case study.

Prerequisites:  None -- previous project management coursework or experience is NO LONGER required. Students who have completed an undergraduate project management course should NOT enroll in CNIT 55200. Instead, those students should enroll in CNIT 58100-APM.
