About Project Management

In this course, we discuss the fundamentals of a good project. We cover competencies such as project planning, project monitoring, budget control, risk analysis, etc. We also discuss which tools can be used to support project management activities, ranging from more general tools to specific tools for certain professions (e.g. translation).

In this course, we cover the base principles of project management and evaluate a number of tools during hands-on sessions. The following components will be discussed:

  • General introduction in project work
  • Project planning (using project planning software)
  • Project monitoring and risk analysis
  • People management
  • Software tools: Plunet, XTM, etc.
