OPMT 2515 - Project Communication and Team Management

Operations Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

Effective management of information and human resources are essential to project success. Project managers spend much of their time communicating with project stakeholders, both internal and external and at all levels of an organization. Effective project communication relies on clearly understanding and responding to project stakeholders’ communication needs. Project team members have varied skill sets, assignments, and time horizons; they also have different needs, perspectives and influences. Building and managing an effective and efficient project team requires careful planning to ensure the right people, with the right skills, are in place at the right time, and that those people are managed effectively throughout their involvement in the project. This course will provide you with the foundational skills to effectively manage project communications and project teams throughout the project lifecycle.
