Optimizing Project Goals

Online BSBA and MBA Summer 2024 - June 3-July 12

Description

This course provides students with tools, techniques, and knowledge to effectively implement projects to reach organization goals. Even with improved planning, projects will rarely go exactly as planned. When problems occur, how should management best respond? What mix of adding resources (e.g., by hiring, overtime, work intensity), changing the schedule (both final and interim milestones), reducing scope, cutting activities such as QA, and so on will provide the optimal outcome? A system dynamics (causal modeling) business analysis tool is used to improve such decisions by taking into consideration feedback in projects, especially the adverse ripple effects of management actions.
Prerequisite: Graduate Standing.

Class Notes

Open to students admitted to the Special Session Online Masters in Business Administration Degree Program Only. Registrations are processed through the Professional & Continuing Education Office. Log in daily or as required by faculty.
