The research dissertation requires delegates to complete an extensive project dealing with a work based problem over a 12 month period.
The reflective dissertation encourages delegates to focus on developing their knowledge about managing projects by critically reflecting on and thinking about their own abilities and their own individual learning and personal development as project managers.
The research dissertation provides delegates with the opportunity to undertake an in-depth academic study into a work-based problem. Delegates will learn how to formulate interesting research questions around a problem, issue and/or challenge faced in managing projects at the workplace. Delegates will learn to engage with published literature pertinent to the management of projects, and undertake relevant quantitative and/or qualitative data collection and analysis. Delegates much then critically integrate and evaluate the data in light of published studies in order to develop fresh insights into the management of projects.
