Forudsætninger

The course is particularly aimed at students who are interested in taking on the role of project manager for change processes involving IT. You should have some experience with project work. It is an advantage if IT was involved in this as most examples in lectures and literature are taken from the IT world, but it is not a prerequisite for participating.
