So funktioniert das Spezialisierung

Kurse absolvieren

Eine Coursera-Spezialisierung ist eine Reihe von Kursen, in denen Sie eine Kompetenz erwerben. Um zu beginnen, melden Sie sich direkt für die Spezialisierung an oder überprüfen Sie deren Kurse und wählen Sie denjenigen Kurs aus, mit dem Sie beginnen möchten. Wenn Sie einen Kurs abonnieren, der Bestandteil einer Spezialisierung ist, abonnieren Sie automatisch die gesamte Spezialisierung Es ist in Ordnung, wenn Sie nur einen Kurs absolvieren möchten — Sie können Ihren Lernprozess jederzeit unterbrechen oder Ihr Abonnement kündigen. Gehen Sie zu Ihrem Kursteilnehmer-Dashboard, um Ihre Kursanmeldungen und Ihren Fortschritt zu verfolgen.

Praxisprojekt

Jede Spezialisierung umfasst ein Praxisprojekt. Sie müssen das Projekt/die Projekte erfolgreich abschließen, um die Spezialisierung abzuschließen und Ihr Zertifikat zu erwerben. Wenn die Spezialisierung einen separaten Kurs für das Praxisprojekt umfasst, müssen Sie zunächst alle anderen Kurse abschließen, bevor Sie damit beginnen können.

Zertifikat erwerben

Wenn Sie alle Kurse und das Praxisprojekt abgeschlossen haben, erhalten Sie ein Zertifikat, dass Sie für potenzielle Arbeitgeber und Ihr berufliches Netzwerk freigeben können.

Kurs1

Major Engineering Project Performance

4.8
72 Bewertungen
9 Bewertungen
Manage large projects by identifying their key characteristics, examining the key factors and risks that affect their performance and exploring methods to counter their impact on the successful delivery of projects. Looking into examples of best practice, you'll explore the relationship between projects, programmes and portfolios. You'll also discover the roles performed by the project manager, examine the difficulties associated with quantifying transaction costs in major project management and consider how different management approaches impact on these costs. Optimism bias and strategic misinterpretation regularly cause delays to major engineering projects. Using stimulating case studies, you'll evaluate the measures of success and compare and contrast 'project success' versus 'project management success'. In the final week of the course, you'll research and present a contemporary example of a major engineering project from your own country. This is the first course in the Managing Major Projects Specialization and first step towards earning degree credit from the University of Leeds. Learners who successfully complete the Specialization will be invited to apply to the enhanced, for-credit Capstone project which will run as a private session on Coursera, and will include live support from tutors. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used directly towards our online MSc in Engineering Management and as evidence of accredited postgraduate study....

To successfully lead major projects you have to understand typical investor and project financing approaches. In this course, you’ll learn to interpret some key contractual instruments that are relevant for the financing of major engineering projects so that you are in a position to ensure the financially secure delivery of your project. You’ll explore the concept of “time value of money” and be able to compute key indicators such as “Pay-back time”, “Net Present value” and “Internal Rate of Return”. You’ll identify common stakeholder and management approaches, and be able to implement key messaging, taking accurate requirements and manage expectations. Through real-life case studies you’ll identify appropriate best practice related to governance, execution strategies, requirements management, procurement, asset and risk management and organisational design and development for the successful delivery of large engineering projects. This is the third course in the Managing Major Engineering Projects Specialization. The Specialization is the first step towards earning degree credit from the University of Leeds. Learners who successfully complete the specialization will be able to apply to the enhanced, for-credit Capstone project which will run as a private course on Coursera.
