Course Syllabus

At Brentwood Open Learning College, we exclusively offer the web’s most flexible and accessible project management courses.  Our most Advanced Level 5 Project Management Diploma was created with the most ambitious and enthusiastic candidates in mind, delivered over a series of 12 modules as outlined below:

Unit 1. Overview of Project Management

Module one introduces candidates to the functions and objectives of project management, along with the role the professional project manager plays in today’s organisation.  A detailed outline of key project management duties and responsibilities is provided, along with a basic overview of the project lifecycle, an introduction to essential project management tools and the benefits of skilled project management.

Unit 2. Project Life Cycle

Candidates then take a more detailed look at the project lifecycle and each of its component stages.  The four major phases of a project are discussed - project planning, project execution, project monitoring and final project evaluation – by way of their individual characteristics and contribution to a project as a whole.  Several common challenges to successful project management are also discussed.

Unit 3. Project Integration Management

The third module focuses heavily on forecasting and the criticality of creating informed and accurate projections as a project manager.  Candidates are presented with tips for producing reliable financial forecasts, guidelines for more accurate project budgeting and the steps that must be taken to determine the type of work and amount of work required to complete a project.

Unit 4. Project Scope Management

Module four introduces candidates to the concept of project scope management – the specifics of the work that needs to be done to ensure the objectives of the project are achieved.  Course content covers both project scope and product scope, the characteristics of a professional project scope statement and how to work with a project scope management plan.

Unit 5. Project Time Management

The importance of meticulous time management and strategic prioritisation in project management is examined in module five.  Candidates consider the characteristics and functions of a project schedule, several helpful tools for improving performance and the extent to which procrastination can impact both the efficiency and viability of a project.

Unit 6. Project Cost Management

A more detailed investigation of project cost management and budgeting follows in module six, which provides further tips and guidelines for estimating project costs more accurately.  Candidates are presented with a detailed breakdown of the project cost management plan, alongside several common issues that can result in elevated costs or overspending.

Unit 7. Project Quality Management

Module seven outlines the value and importance of meticulous quality control in project management, examining the project manager’s contribution to overall project quality.  Several important internal and external quality factors are discussed, along with a series of project quality management tools and resources for enhanced quality control.

Unit 8. Project Human Resource Management

Candidates consider the HR management responsibilities of the project manager in module eight, which also examines the art of effective delegation and the characteristics of a quality leader.  The broad functions and objectives of HR management are discussed, alongside helpful guidelines for improving workforce performance and how to effectively allocate responsibilities.

Unit 9. Project Communication Management

Module nine examines the extent to which communication plays a key role in the completion of all important projects.  Candidates learn how to plan for effective communication, assess the communication requirements of a project and understand the potential consequences of communication breakdowns in project management.

Unit 10. Project Procurement Management

The procurement aspect of project management concerns the products, materials, resources and manpower required to successfully complete a project.  Candidates learn how to accurately assess a project’s requirements, strategically select suppliers/vendors and avoid the most common issues and challenges when working with third-party contractors.

Unit 11. Project Risk Management

A fascinating overview of project risk management followers in module 11, which guides learners through the process of creating and implementing an effective risk strategy.  Course content covers the identification, classification, prioritisation and mitigation of risk at a variety of levels, along with the role of SWOT analysis in improving the efficiency and quality of projects.

Bringing the course to a close, module 12 takes a look at global project management and the unique challenges of planning, implementing and optimising international projects.  International leadership skills and HR management are discussed in-depth, along with techniques for enhanced communication and how to avoid common conflicts when managing international projects.
