Project Management Education for Value Creation


Project management is a fundamental knowledge and skill in the field of engineering. Conventional project management has been based on a waterfall process to achieve deliverables while balancing the scope, schedule, and cost. Today, project management aims to not only obtain deliverables but achieve outcomes for value creation with sustainability. Furthermore, the project management process has become more diverse, including waterfall, agile, and a combination of them. The Project Management Body of Knowledge and the Standards have shifted from the methodologies defining detailed processes to the general principles. Project management education in universities should respond to value creation in diverse project models. However, the general principles are difficult to learn for students with limited practical project experience. Careful consideration should be given to designing project management educational programs. We researched the requirements for project management education for value creation in diverse processes and analyzed the gaps between recent demands and current project management education in universities. We propose a framework for project management education to achieve the learning outcomes for the program and allocate learning outcomes to projects, exercises, and lectures of project management education programs for value creation.
