Welcome to the USQ Project Management Framework
Project management is used to ensure the achievement of desired institutional changes, to achieve the outcomes of research and learning and teaching grants, and as a way of improving aspects of the University environment for staff and students. For this reason, there is a very good chance someone working in a university, such as USQ, will one day be involved in a project.
USQ has developed its own Project Management Framework as a means of ensuring the quality of projects, and as a general guide for those tasked with managing or working on projects within the University. Participation in this training course will provide you with the opportunity to learn about, and apply, the USQ Project Management Framework, as well as examining the key dimensions of the project management process.
Course Structure and Content
This course is designed to step you through the USQ project management phases, but modules and information can be accessed in the order that suits you.
Support materials include text-based modules, which provide a summary of each phase, a secondary reading, Project Management: From Simple to Complex, to provide greater detail about key concepts, and activities, such as quizzes and scenarios for you to test your understanding of project management at USQ.
There is also a glossary of specialised project management terms that can also be accessed from the 'Activities' menu on the left-hand side of this screen.
