An important outcome of the Master of Project Management is that a graduate should be able to plan and execute independent research which consolidates, builds upon and applies the project management capabilities developed through their program of study. Project managers work in highly volatile environments and must be able to respond to unforeseen situations and make evidence-based decisions to solve complex problems.

This capstone course will call on the student to synthesise their learning throughout their program of study in a holistic way, and focus it in the context of a selected and contemporary project which enables them to explore key aspects of their areas of interest/specialisation. Students will develop appropriate research skills and specialist knowledge which will enhance their career prospects and prepare them for an evidence-based practice approach to their profession.

This course explores complex organisational project concepts and applies them in a global context. It discusses how information from academic and professional sources can be used to critically analyse complex issues. It covers how to communicate information clearly and fluently for appropriate project stakeholders, and how to design and execute a substantial research-based approach to solving project design and delivery problems.
