Department: PhD in Business Management & PhD in Project Management
Module Description: This module addresses the special requirements of large programmes and mega-projects. A distinguishing factor is the inherent increase in complexity that requires a different, more advanced, skill set. The module draws from international large project and programme case studies in the public and private sector that cover manufacturing, construction, and service industries. Key differentiating factors for large programme management considered include: integrated programme plan and strategy; stakeholder management complexity; risk management for high risk profile programmes; cost estimating and whole life-cycle costs; and, programme governance complexity.
