Comment fonctionne la Spécialisation

Suivez les cours

Une Spécialisation Coursera est une série de cours axés sur la maîtrise d'une compétence. Pour commencer, inscrivez-vous directement à la Spécialisation ou passez en revue ses cours et choisissez celui par lequel vous souhaitez commencer. Lorsque vous vous abonnez à un cours faisant partie d'une Spécialisation, vous êtes automatiquement abonné(e) à la Spécialisation complète. Il est possible de terminer seulement un cours : vous pouvez suspendre votre formation ou résilier votre abonnement à tout moment. Rendez-vous sur votre tableau de bord d'étudiant pour suivre vos inscriptions aux cours et vos progrès.

Projet pratique

Chaque Spécialisation inclut un projet pratique. Vous devez réussir le(s) projet(s) pour terminer la Spécialisation et obtenir votre Certificat. Si la Spécialisation inclut un cours dédié au projet pratique, vous devrez terminer tous les autres cours avant de pouvoir le commencer.

Obtenir un Certificat

Lorsque vous aurez terminé tous les cours et le projet pratique, vous obtiendrez un Certificat que vous pourrez partager avec des employeurs éventuels et votre réseau professionnel.

Major Engineering Project Performance

4.8
37 notes
5 avis
Optimism bias and strategic misinterpretation regularly cause delays to major engineering projects. Learn how to 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. 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 as evidence of accredited postgraduate study....

Dealing with a complex network of stakeholders is a key feature of major projects. Gain confidence when dealing with stakeholders of major projects by learning to identify and manage those that are involved in the project planning and delivery and explore project governance in theory and practice. Through real life examples you’ll understand how the critical challenges of the governance in major projects are resolved. Being able to successfully manage risk and uncertainty in major projects is vital for their delivery. In this course you’ll learn to distinguish between risk and uncertainty and the role of risk register. You’ll identify the unique challenges of scope management in major projects and employ scope management tools and techniques that will facilitate your project planning. This is the second 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. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used as evidence of accredited postgraduate study....

Going over budget is one of the key reasons big projects fail. In this course you’ll understand typical investor and project financing approaches in major projects so that you are in a better position to successfully manage them. By taking this course, you’ll learn to interpret some key contractual instruments that are relevant for the financing of major engineering projects such as concessions and Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) so that you are in a position to ensure the financially secure delivery of your project. You’ ll learn about 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”. Through identifying common stakeholder and management approaches, you will be in a better position 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. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used directly as evidence of accredited postgraduate study....
