Course Description


Project management is used to optimize the utilization of resources to achieve set goals, within the planned schedule and allocated budget. The digitalization or digitization allows for the projects to reduce the time spent on meetings, reduces costs and enables transparency, cooperation and ease of communication. However, it comes with risks, as managing digital projects involves managing various digital technologies to achieve high-quality deliverables, and these deliverables might not always be tangible, and depend a lot on the user acceptance.

The vast majority of project management failures we see can be traced back to requirements management, scope creep, change request handling, adoption failures, or sustained maintenance — all activities that are in the realm of project management, and when it comes to digitization, all of them are existent as the understanding of the workload needed for responding to change requests is not always fully understood.
