This course presents essential aspects of organisational project management to managers of organisations to help implement their organisation’s strategies through programs delivering data science initiatives. Due to the emergent nature of data science initiatives, they require novel approaches to be managed effectively to ensure that they create value for the organisation. The subject helps participants to adapt these novel approaches and formulate suitable governance structures to deliver these programs.
