Innovative Project Management

Offshore Wind Energy MBA

Traditional project management courses teach systematic approaches to project planning. This is a strength but also a disadvantage. The course aims at giving the students the ability to adapt project planning to a specific environment. By bringing in innovative thinking in project planning a project model tailored for the firm can be established between the outer ends of the traditional project management theory: Water fall models and adaptive project management. The module combines the aspects of innovation and HRM to make project management a leadership tool.

Due to the current challenges within the wind industry the course will focus on designing the project management models necessary to cope with the tasks of decommissioning. Apply here until April, 23rd 2019 for the next course.
