COMP 8082 - Project Management

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

This course offers a comprehensive overview of project management techniques to effectively plan, manage, and control software development projects. Students will learn project management methodologies with an emphasis on software projects and agile methodology. Students will design a project for which they will create a project work breakdown structure; identify risks, inter-operability, and privacy and security issues; establish the necessary roles in the software development team; and apply strategies to control the project schedule and quality.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 7082

Credits

3.0

This is a new course and is currently scheduled to be offered for the first time through BCIT Part-time Studies in the Winter 2019 term.

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.
  • Apply the scrum project management methodology to a software project.
  • Identify and justify necessary roles in a software development team.
  • Apply a conflict resolution strategy to resolve conflicts in a team setting
  • Apply ethical considerations to project management.
  • Identify and apply methods for risk identification and assessment related to software development.
  • 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).
  • Apply management strategies for managing virtual teams.
