PROM 602 - Managing the Triple Constraint: Scope, Time, and Cost (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: PROM 600 , or permission of the instructor.
The triple constraint is the framework through which all projects evolve. This course will be a foundation course focusing on the definition, application and management of the scope, time, and cost constraints of the project. Current readings will bring real-life application of the theory to the students. The course will cover each of the components in detail and students will have an opportunity to use software project management tools to help them develop a sense of how project management can be aided by the use of technology. Earned value management and the role of quality in management of the triple constraint are critical topics that will also be covered in this course. Students will be expected to participate fully in all class discussions and will be evaluated by tests as well as their level of participation and the quality of their review paper.
