Development work with Project Management in healthcare

To understand, work in and lead projects is an increasingly common task and the conditions are different today than in the traditionally-led organization. This course focuses on both applied development work as well as applied project management and is divided into two modules, one for each subject.

Students use an entrepreneurial mind-set and scientific models to observe, identify and analyse the evaluation and development of the respective applied projects. During the process of identifying and analysing the challenges in health care, the student should interact with healthcare professionals, researchers, and experts in relation to a specific innovation process.

Module1: Development work

The development module is built around the implementation of projects and seminars that will provide students with opportunities to learn the skills and tools necessary to work practically with the development of early innovation projects. The course will develop the student's knowledge in the design of solutions, evaluation and packaging of early innovations. The focus is on the identification and design of needs-based innovations in health care.

Module 2: Project Management

The project management module will establish a general approach to project management, communicating knowledge about the basic work in projects of various types and provide an understanding of the project's different conditions that can influence project content and activities. The course also focuses on the project's complex strategic function as a collaboration platform and its management function. An important starting point is that the organization of the project is temporary and dynamic.

The course is given in the fall 2017 for the first time. The study pace is 50 %.
