The general aim of the course is to deepen students' knowledge and understanding of project and multi-stakeholder management especially applied to dealing with wicked problems. After taking this course, students:
  • Know what multi-organizational projects are.
  • Have deepened their understanding of aspects of project management and multiple stakeholder management in particular.
  • Are able to apply their knowledge of project and multi-stakefolder management (e.g. in assignments and serious games).
  • Develop experience with the coordination of multi-organizational efforts to deal with wicked problems.
Prior knowledge of the course Financial and Project Management or an equivalent course are necessary to participate
Recommended Prerequisites
Financial and Project Management (440026)
Because wicked problems often are dealt within and by intra- or inter-organizational projects (with so-called collaborative strategies), GMSI students also have to be knowledgeable about managing such coordinated efforts. In the second year of the GMSI program, the knowledge acquired in the 1st year course Financial and Project Management is extended and deepened in the course Advanced Project Management.
Examples of topics addressed in the course are: Project cost management; Stakeholder management; Risk management; Procurement management; Project-organizational structures; Project management standards (PRINCE2, PMBOK, ISO21500).
An important application of the course content is a simulation game in which students participate in a role play in which they have to organize and coordinate a multi-organizational effort to fight a humanitarian crisis. In this way they train their overall preparedness and response capacity to a wicked problem.
