This course is part of the second semester in the bachelor’s degree in Global Business Informatics.
I øvrigt skal man opfylde IT-Universitetets generelle optagelseskrav.
|Læringsmål:||After the course the students should be able to*:
• Formulate a research question within the area of global project management related to e.g. globalization, cooperation, organization, information technology, collaboration, culture, documents and coordinative artifacts.
• Identify, select, and analyze relevant material e.g. theoretical concepts, methods, and empirical material for the research question
• Identify and critically discuss challenges and theoretical concepts relevant to global project management in oral and written form according to academic standards
|Fagligt indhold:||Over the last decades, the global distribution of cooperative work tasks has become more and more commonplace and pronounced following the general trend towards an ever more globalized world. Consequently, cooperative actors are increasingly engaged with the coordination of globally distributed work task. At one level, the global distribution of cooperative work tasks creates a number of specific challenges. That is, spatial, temporal and cultural distance has to be negotiated and bridged. Furthermore, information technology may facilitate interventions in a development context in the Global South. This course considers the nature as well as the challenges associated with globally distributed work as well as ICT interventions in the Global South. During the course the students will relate to:
• The processes of globalization that makes global projects more and more common
• Cases of global project management from industry (e.g. global engineering, global software development, ICT interventions for development in the Global South).
• Challenges that are particular to global interaction and coordination (e.g. culture, distance, time difference)
• How IT may facilitate cooperation, intervention and coordination of global projects
• How IT may facilitate interventions in a development context in the Global South
• Various practices of coordination that may be used in global projects
• Introduction to Project Management
|Læringsaktiviteter:||12 forelæsninger + lejlighedsvis øvelser i forbindelse med undervisningen|
Lectures that focus on reading and discussing issues central to global project management are combined with sessions run by teaching assistants, in which students are actively engaged in exercises relating to themes.
The first half of the course includes an individually prepared half-term synopsis and a group-based oral presentation of central concepts from the course. Students will also be assigned to give group based feedback on the presentations. These activities are mandatory requirements for taking the exam.
In the second half of the course, students plan and carry out a study of a relevant topic covered by the syllabus. This project work is conducted individually and involves making a research plan that includes sketching a research question, finding and analyzing relevant materials and writing a final report.
