The purpose of the course is to enable the student to analyze projects and project processes, and as a result, contribute to the accomplishment of the project. The aim is that the student builds up a substantial methodological competence so that he/she understands how he/she is able to promote a good accomplishment by applying appropriate methods and tools and applying appropriate behavior. 
The student will obtain insight into the project management discipline and its’ concepts and assumptions, and will be able to independently employ/utilize the knowledge obtained to work out a project mandate with matching analyses and plans, and also to be able to evaluate project descriptions, analyses and plans worked out by other people. Furthermore, the student will be able to independently follow-up on analyses and plans, and in the light of these provide proposals for an appropriate management effort.
The student will attain knowledge about how to guide a process in which more persons are involved in accomplishing the abovementioned activities. Furthermore, the student will be able to employ this knowledge to make suggestions on how activities concerning project planning and following-up can be organized.
The student will attain knowledge on how a person’s behavior related to project management may have a hampering or a promoting effect on the accomplishment of the project, and will be able to independently apply this insight to (1) propose suggestions on his/her own, appropriate behavior in relation to the work on a single projects, and (2) be able to analyze and offer interpretations of the appropriateness of the behavior in project courses, where others are involved.
Competence in project management is in the course understood as a generic competence, which can be applied in all project types and in the private as well as the public sector. The student will, therefore, in principal become able to contribute to management of any project. Examples and cases will be drawn from projects relevant to the participants attending the course.
