Strategic Project Management at Heriot-Watt University differentiates itself from other project management programmes by putting a greater emphasis on the strategic requirement in managing a portfolio of projects to deliver organisational goals.
In this way, Strategic Project Management encompasses both project management as a process to deliver end products and change management as a process to capture the rational and emotional buy-in of the people affected by change to ensure its success. A postgraduate qualification in Strategic Project Management can benefit individuals in business, engineering, IT or science whose job involves managing or directing work that has a strategic focus and a defined end goal.
