MDCI will be welcoming back to Bahrain Dr Ashish Dwivedi who will be delivering the University of Hull Executive MBA module on complex project management between 29th March -1st April 2017.
This is a module intended to provide both the tools and techniques of this unique discipline, and academic debate about its role within contemporary business. For those with previous project management experience, be prepared to share that experience and gain fresh insights. For those with no previous experience, you will have the opportunity to learn from your peers as well as staff, and gain a ‘toolkit’ for future use during your career.
The module contributes to the ‘Five Big Ideas’ that define our MBA in a number of ways: We discuss various lenses through which Project Management leadership can be viewed, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective; the impact that Project Management leadership has on all aspects of organisational life at all levels within the organisational structure is explored; we debate the channels through which Project Management can exert their influence, and indeed, are influenced; finally, the notion of the importance of understanding that a business must deal fairly with various project management stakeholders such as stockholders, employees, customers, suppliers, and community is debated so as to prepare Hull MBA students to plan, organize, lead, participate in, control, and improve projects that will benefit both their organizations and society.
Ashish commenced his career in the financial services industry and then moved to academia where he is currently a Lecturer at the Hull University Business School. Ashish is also associated with the management of the high-tech Management Learning Laboratory (MLL) and is the programme leader for a newly-created Masters in Knowledge Management. Ashish has previously taught and researched at Coventry University and the University of Northampton.
