Management of Software Technology and Teams is a 5-hour course that addresses the differences in managing a software development project and points out some agile approaches to software development and to project management.

The course goes in depth into the specific management challenges associated with managing software project teams, where the team is temporary, task-focused and includes personnel seconded from other parts of the organization, or external supplier organizations. Students will have the opportunity to identify team management priorities, understand the management preferences of team members and develop an action plan for addressing those preferences.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Business context and project selection
  • Contractual issues in software development
  • Software intellectual property
  • Managing open source software
  • Managing global teams


Students should have prior experience as members of a software development team. If they do not have actual industry experience, membership on a student project team of several persons can be sufficient if the team was large enough so the students can appreciate the necessity of good management principles and activities. Students should also have knowledge of the aspects of software development at an equal depth to that presented in a one term introductory course on the subject.

Access to the program is initiated within two business days of payment and enabled online 24/7 for three months after access is granted.
