Evidence-Based Project Management

Ying-Yi Chih, ANUx

Learn which project management strategies, tools and techniques are most effective by analyzing evidence-based research.

Project management has emerged as a critical organizational capability in recent years. In parallel with this increased prominence has been the emergence of the “professional project manager,” supported by a sophisticated suite of project management tools and techniques.

Evidence-based project management will evaluate the accumulated data, evidence and research in support of different project management strategies, tools and techniques.

The critical thinking abilities, knowledge and decision-making skills developed in this course are particularly valuable for project managers, emergent leaders, and established managers.

This course is part of the Evidence-Based Management MicroMasters Program.
