This project is an online collaboration between students from Coventry University (UK) and The Institute of Accountancy Arusha (IAA) Tanzania which investigates issues related to Leadership in the Management of Projects and its contextual challenges.
The unique project design is such that students from different nationalities are each studying a Coventry University postgraduate degree but are physically based in either Tanzania or the United Kingdom.
The in-class and online-forum discussions explore the effectiveness of this novel teaching and learning procedure to make students enthusiastically share their ideas with regards to ideas such as ‘Project Managers Stumble as Leaders’. Their views in relation to cases cited in their countries are presented and evaluated.
