Description: This course examines project risk and cost management concepts such as cost identification and classification, cost estimating, risk and opportunity identification, risk evaluation, and how those concepts are applied to the domain of information technology. Project risk and cost management skills play an important role in the success of projects and are increasingly important to the information technology domain where technology-infused projects are inherently complex. In addition, this course builds upon student learning in CIT 612 by introducing students to project risk and cost management components of the Project Management Institute's PMBOK® framework. Students will apply their knowledge and skills by creating cost management pan and risk management plan documents for an information technology project following the specifications defined in the Project Management Institute's PMBOK® framework. Students will build upon this course during the remainder of their program by exploring additional Project Management Institute PMBOK® framework components. Letter grade only.
