Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Design a complex project portfolio, scope, work breakdown, responsibility matrix, communication plan, and schedule.
  • Explain the concept of a software lifecycle and provide examples that illustrate its phases (analysis, design, implementation, testing, quality assurance, refactoring, deployment and maintenance), including methodologies that apply to each phase and the deliverables that are produced.
  • Compare several common process models (waterfall, prototyping, spiral, incremental, iterative and agile) with respect to their value for development of particular classes of software systems, taking into account issues such as requirement stability, size, and non-functional characteristics.
  • Evaluate a set of software requirements to determine the quality of the requirements with respect to the characteristics of good requirements.
  • Identify how project management is different for agile teams.
  • Identify and justify necessary roles in a software development and IT teams.
  • Apply a conflict resolution strategy to resolve conflicts in a team setting.
  • Identify ethical and sustainability considerations in project management.
  • Identify and apply methods for documenting and managing user requirements.
  • Identify and apply methods for risk identification and assessment for an entire system that arise from aspects other than the software (e.g., inter-operability, privacy and security issues).
  • Identify and apply methods for risk identification and assessment related to software development and IT.
  • Identify and apply methods for risk identification and assessment for an entire system that arise from aspects other than the software (e.g., inter-operability, privacy and security issues)
