Mestrado Bolonha em Engenharia Electrónica
Our goal is that students learn and construct their own knowledge, creating their specific view on Project management. We explore the integration of mainstream approaches (PMBOK), complementary approaches (Critical Chain) and of a diversity of different views and problems (scientific papers on PM). We work on the development of a sociotechnical view, mainly in the first phases of the engineering process (requirements analyses, specifications, and design). We unveil some social networks fundaments using Actor-Network Theory. With this approach we intend to facilitate the construction of individual knowledge and to let each one know the best practices in the field. Our tonic is in design projects in Engineering. ? Project Management Specificities: organizational context, technological context, Engineering Process, Project Management knowledge areas. Engineering process and Management process. ? Activities, processes, tasks, managing the part and managing the whole (system). Process view. ? Project phases (life cycle): origin, start, planning, execution, control and closing. Performance evaluation, learning cycle, team learning. ? Teams and Groups (team choice, team building, communication in the team, leadership, enrolling, processes of work, work division, delegation, alignment, effectiveness and efficiency control (effectiveness/efficiency matrix), collaborative work, agile planning and conflict management) ? Communication competencies ? organizational communication (informal, formal, oral and written). Communication validation (type 2). Reports on options taken, problems and Project evolution. Support infrastructure to information and communication in a project. ? Different projects (dimension, extension and scientific domain. Portfolio management) ? Key competences to manage a project (planning and scope, governance, change management, stakeholders management, risk management, resource management, quality management, communication reports, control, evaluation and closing) ? Project scope should address: benefits (long term and bottom line outcomes), clients broadly addressed (stakeholders ? all that can affect or are affected by the project), results (products and/or services), work (activities and tasks) and resources (human, material, technology and finance) ? WBS Work Breakdown structure ? Planning with PERT and GANT, critical path. Time management ? Resource allocation ? Costs and estimates, cost control ? Project control, overall and phase to phase ? Risk management (identification, qualification, quantification, response and control). Decision trees, decision tables, expected value, utility functions ? Detailing issues occurred (describing, when, what, who and state) ? Earned Value and buffers. ? Reports and log books ? Managing by anticipation ? Cooperation (inside, outside, inter group). Coopetition ? Decision making processes, leadership and decision, communication and decision ? Managing change (scanning the environment and preparing the change investing in) ? Contracting, Procurement, Negotiation ? Conclusion (closing) and learning (Lessons learned) ? Social and Ethical responsibility Along this course we address topics like: organizational culture, work context, organizational structure, job description and responsibilities, delegation, competence, motivation, organizational policies and standards, processes workflow, integrated management of heterogeneous resources (human, technological and finance). Students will learn how to use MS Project during the development of a Project. In the laboratory classes the students organized in groups will present Power Point presentation of papers taken from International Journal of Project Management and Project Management Journal. This laboratory classes are discussion classes.
