F1W0 34: Project Management for IT
This Unit is designed to develop an understanding of the concepts and principles, the
boundaries and scope of project management with emphasis on issues and problems faced by managers of projects. The Unit also offers the candidate the opportunity to develop a project schedule using project management software to demonstrate how the use of such software can assist a project manager to deal with these particular issues and problems when managing projects.
The Unit forms part of an HN group award programme, and is intended for candidates in the Computing and IT sector. It may be used, however, in a wide range of other areas where skills in project management are required. The Unit is also capable of being delivered as a standalone unit and may be of interest to candidates with appropriate work experience who hold positions such as project team leaders or team members who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the principles and procedures, as well as software available to help manage a project.
On completion of the Unit, candidates should be able to:1. Demonstrate a knowledge of project management principles.
