Project management education--an Australian experience
Numerous international seminars and conferences have examined the need for a formal structure to educate and train project managers. This article examines one such structure. In doing so, it defines the nature and scope of project management, identifies the reasons behind its emergence as a distinct discipline, and identifies the knowledge and the skills project managers need to perform effectively. It then outlines a structure for designing postgraduate courses in project management, one that is informed by one such program developed by--and offered at--the South Australian Institute of Technology.
