This unit provides you with the skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing contemporary work environment. You will identify, formulate and solve problems while being provided with industry focused learning opportunities during your final year of study. You will actively engage in characteristics of an authentic project management practice. These will include: time and resource constraints, capability gaps, cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary teams addressing complex problems and differing leadership and team member working styles. This unit provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate a deep understanding and practical application of the knowledge and skills gained in the early stages of the Master of Project Management, as well as demonstrating the attributes required of a CQUniversity Graduate. You will undertake a project related to your domain of choice and participate in tasks associated with project management within a contemporary work environment. Assessment includes the opportunity to plan and execute a project, analyse your project performance and self-reflect on your experience and lessons learnt.
