EM 570 Global Product Development

EM 570 Global Product Development (3 cr)

Discussion of topics related to enabling effective global product development spanning the entire product development cycle from strategy development, through project execution, and ultimately post release product support. Rather than presenting a fixed methodology, this course will provide a framework for global development that can be adapted to specific environments.

EM 580 Technical Project Management

EM 580 Technical Project Management (3 cr)

Traditional project management approaches are typically structured around the five PMBOK (Project Management Book of Knowledge) process groups. This course will introduce the PMBOK process groups but then discuss five different project management life cycle (PMLC) models to manage a project. The topics discussed are appropriate for new project managers but also for experienced project managers who are looking to increase their awareness and improve their skills in differing PMLC models.

EM 582 Advanced Topics in Project Management

EM 582 Advanced Topics in Project Management (3 cr)

Discussion and application of advanced project management topics beyond those prescribed by traditional project management approaches. Example topics include project portfolio management, multi-project management, use of Theory of Constraints (TOC) and Critical Chain approaches to drive improved results, and application of Agile practices. These approaches should be applicable to a wide variety of industries and functions.

Prereq: EM 580 or Instructor Permission
