RESPRO – Responsible leadership – Developing people skills in project management education in European HEI’s
The overall objective of RESPRO is to improve people skills in project management education. We will analyze the existing best practices of responsible leadership in project management, specify and include the principles of responsible leadership into the project management education, develop easy-access short (EAS) courses and tools for responsible leadership in relation to IMPA people skill standards and raise awareness of responsible project management to achieve this objective.
Completing the actions in RESPRO the project reaches the outcomes corresponding to the project objectives. We will discover the current procedures of responsible project management and reflect the practice to scientific findings, develop easy access short (EAS)-courses and the e-simulation game, and will integrate both into the curricula of participating HEIs. The Teacher Guidebook, is designed to support the practical implementation of the EAS-courses and the e-simulation game.
Therefore, the concrete results of RESPRO project are the EAS-courses (3 ECTs), the e-simulation game and the Guidebook for Teachers. The novel educational tools will improve the people skills of the future project managers, deepen their knowledge and skills on responsible leadership and foster their perception of the leader’s role in preserving and promoting the wellbeing of the project team. Project results support the digital transformation of education and facilitate digital readiness of students and teachers in in the field of project management.
