In 2011, the collaboration between myself, Stephan and PMI Belgium that already existed for years was extended by involving my students of the Project Management course module. It has led to the first University Contest with the winners Alexander De Cuyper, Jan Dierckx, Peter Van Vooren and Hristo Petrov for their paper entitled "Impact of methodology and software on the planning of a construction project".
A delegation of our Operations Researchers from the OR&S group at Ghent University are now in Barcelona, Spain for the 20th Conference of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS).
Only recently, I received a book performance report from Springer for my first two books I have written on Project Management, Measuring Time (2010) and Dynamic Scheduling (2012, second edition in 2014). Obviously, my third book, Integrated Project Management and Control, is not in the report yet since it has been published in 2014, which is not included in the report.
The course "Project Management" given at Ghent University, Vlerick Business School and University College London relies on expertise and the OR&S research group and products from OR-AS. But why do we teach Project Management to these students?
The answer is given in the movie below. Get to know your learning outcomes, the topics covered, the essential readings and why you should subscribe and follow this training.
OR-AS' main focus is on Integrated Project Management an Control, but there is more. For example the research on hybrid (meta-)heuristic optimization for single machine, parallel machine and job shop scheduling problems.
