This subject examines how an organisation can use a 'project approach' to generate value for its stakeholders in a rapidly changing and fast-moving economic context, while sustaining long-term competitive advantage. Students learn how organisations are increasingly using project, portfolio and program management, combined with project/program management offices (PMO) to manage their change activities. Such organisations are now commonly referred to as 'Project Organisation' (PO). Students are exposed to different organisational models and trends through real-life case studies, that demonstrate how an integrated and dynamic PO can be developed to sustain competitive advantage. In the block workshop, students work independently and through team activities to demonstrate an understanding of the PO concept.
