About the Course

The labor market is increasingly organized in the form of project work, a fact which has led to both opportunities and challenges for individuals and organizations, as well as for society at large. Accordingly, the aim of this course is to provide elementary knowledge and skills in project management and project planning. The course initially deals with crucial aspects of the transition towards a project intensive society.

The focus for the course is however on how to plan and manage projects and to provide the students with practical tools (concepts/models/perspectives) relevant to their future world of work. Fundamental to this are issues relating to the organization and management of projects in a constantly changing society. In addition to theoretical and conceptual lectures there will also be lectures where professionals share their experiences and perspectives. Hence, the course combines academic knowledge about project management and planning with practical skills of value for work in private and public sectors, as well as in civil society. The course is examined through seminar discussions as well as through both theoretical and more practical written assignments, individually and in group.
