OA7101 Aims

  • OA7101-AI: Specify and develop the critical skills for effective design reviews, including how to assure that a common view is shared of and within the project.
  • OA7101-A2: Specify and develop the critical skills required in directing projects, including how to assure project compliance.
  • OA7101-A3: Specify and develop the critical skills to define effective communication for project direction.

OA7101 Learning Outcomes

  • OA7101-LO1: Review and analyse tools to engineer compliance of the project at the tactical level of senior user (architect of final deliverable).
  • OA7101-LO2: Critically analyse, design and organize process to construct requirement baseline and definition baseline for the project.
  • OA7101-LO3: Evaluate communication for project tactical direction by senior user.
