Project_Mgt_webinar_Sept15

With Professors Yael Grushka-Cockayne and Gerald Starsia

Choice of project management methodology, i.e. how a project is planned and executed, is of strategic importance to a business. Ill-chosen methodologies are often cited as top reasons for why projects fail. Project management methodologies are often chosen at an organization level, not considering the specifics of a project at hand and rarely considering a combination of elements from multiple methods.  In this webinar, Professors Grushka-Cockayne and Starsia will provide an overview common project management methodologies (e.g. Waterfall, Agile, Critical Chain) and propose some important factors that should be considered when selecting a method, such as:

  • Industry in which the business operates
  • Type of project
  • Organizational culture
