CS4457 – Project Management – Reflection – Week 10

This week we covered some Human Resource Management, mainly focused around motivation. The issue of motivation for me is a very important one, as I’ve found motivation in the first semester of fourth year much more of a struggle than any of the previous years, in all my educational career. For CS4457, we dealt largely … Continue reading »

This week covered we covered more Risk Management and Outsourcing. The Risk Management we covered was largely focused on different methods of evaluating Risks and how both priority and impact are very important when it comes to evaluating Risks.

CS4457 – Project Management – Reflection – Week 8

This week we covered some of Risk Management. While an interesting topic and one that conceptually makes sense (predicting what will go wrong and what to do when it goes wrong) I understood why it was the least mature knowledge field in any kind of production.

CS4457 – Project Management – Reflection – Week 7

This week we covered Quality Management & some Communication Management. Personally I find Quality Management an odd area of Project Management, due to it being (I’d have argued) self-evident.

CS4457 – Project Management – Reflection – Week 1 to Week 3

For the first 3 Weeks of this module, we got acquainted with Vispi Shroff, our lecturer and began cover the basics of Project Management. We covered a fair amount material in those 3 weeks and I don’t want to reguritate slides (that are freely available here), so I’ll just note concepts that stood out to … Continue reading »

“I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.”

Hey folks, I must apologise for my lack of updates. With my return to college and the starting of my final year in Computer Systems, the importance of the blog was lowered. But I kept on wishing to integrate them somehow, to have me working away AND posting on the blog. So I’m going to … Continue reading »
