crb843: Project Management and Leadership
Year 1, Spring Semester (2 credits)
Empowering people and teams to work together is fundamental to personal and business success.
This course explores project management as a “socio-technical media”—covering the technical, sociological and leadership skills that are critical to effective business, research, development, legal and global community relationships.
You’ll integrate information and skills from your job and previous courses to respond to sample situations faced by biotechnology project managers.
You’ll know how to design, use and defend a project management plan. You’ll also develop and test the skills needed to build and lead project teams of collaborators, partners, contractors, senior management and investors—helping them solve problems, make decisions and manage risk.
