Læringsmål:At the end of the course, the student must be able to:
•Identify the different perspectives on IT Projects and portfolio management and their implications for how we understand IT Projects and how each perspective is linked to various types of management tools
•Apply and account for what different perspectives means for problem identification and analysis, and solutions in relation to a chosen case
•Compare and contrast the different perspectives on several dimensions
•Relate theoretical perspectives to practice and explain the types of considerations that may arise from a project/portfolio manager or project responsible person
•Critically analyse the identified and/or used perspectives to address the need for other/new approaches to project/portfolio management 
Fagligt indhold:The overall academic and learning goals of the course are to enable the student to analyse, reflect on and manage an IS project in an organisational context. The organisation and management of an IS project is of growing importance for many organisations, whether in the private or public sector. Development and implementation for IS Projects go hand in hand and competent project management will be an important factor for the many types of tasks and areas in the companies. The key point is that different perspecitvies are important for the understanding of the IS project, the challenges and hence the type of management pursued.

The first part of the course introduces the students to the concepts, theories and prescriptions of how managers should practice project management and portfolio managment. The second part of the course shows how and why these concepts, theories and prescriptions usually fail in real life. New theoretisation based on what actually happen in practice is introduced and discussed. 

The course is an introduction to different perspectives on project and portfolio management and consists of a combination of lectures, class discussions, project work and peer-to-peer feedback. Thus, a high level of active participation and reflection is expected from the students.

The lectures will focus theoretically on reading and discussing various perspectives. Further, during group work you will identify project and portfolio management tools and discuss them in relation to the different perspectives.
