Project and Change Management
Full course description
In this skills training students will learn and practice project management skills, such as scoping, planning, financial organization, et cetera. Project management is necessary for successful innovation, it is not sufficient. Innovation within companies, but also in supply chains, requires organizational change. Failures often result from human resistance to change, rather than from technological problems. Managing change is therefore an important skill that needs to be addressed in the programme. This skills training therefore also addresses change management.
