Managing conflict is an important part of a project manager’s role. Project managers need skills to resolve conflicts before they escalate into disputes, and to identify when dispute resolution approaches are needed and recommend appropriate actions.

In this subject, students work on a series of scenarios from different environments to identify and address sources of conflict and to apply negotiation skills. Through the interactive subject workshops, students also develop skills in resolving disputes through facilitation and mediation, and in identifying when to initiate determinative dispute resolution processes.
