Project work can be considered to fall into several sequential stages. The first of these is the start-up phase. In this stage, crucial decisions about the project’s strategic impact, constraints, significant risks, desired outcomes and broad scope are made by key project stakeholders. This process requires successful inter-stakeholder communication.

This unit explains what is meant by project work, as compared to business as usual. It enables project choices that are strategically aligned with the organisation’s goals. Students learn how to identify the project’s key stakeholders. They acquire skills in defining project scope,  identifying the resources required for successful project communication, planning information distribution methods and media and managing stakeholders.
