Theoretical project management uses a variety of theories, models and methodologies to deliver consistent results no matter what the project. However, in many cases these plans do not survive contact with the realities of project execution. The list of things that can seriously derail a project is endless, and the challenges to overcome them can be immense. These are the times when the standard methodologies fail to provide all the answers. This subject fills that gap. Project Management and Recovery (PMR) is a set of principles and concepts that are derived from practical experience and converted into a framework that can be universally applied to any failing project. This subject gives students the tools and knowledge to effectively recover a failing project and bring it back to a successful baseline and conclusion.
