Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course intends to deepen the understanding and ability of qualified process management in

complex planning conditions. The course takes starting point in the changeable

surrounding conditions for planning connected to among other things sustainable societal development, and how these influence

the preconditions for planning for sustainable cities, regions, transport and urban structures.

The course builds on the contents of the Qualified process leadership course/contract education AG227U and addresses

situation analysis, theory of strategic planning capacity and process design,

negotiation methodology and leadership in complex projects.

The course consists of a blend of theory and dialogue-based learning activities and exercises. Core components of the course are

lectures, seminar discussions, individual and group assignment and analyses of practical

planning cases.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • Discuss in-depth how changing external conditions connected to

the long term sustainable development influences the assignment as

urban and regional planners/process leaders.

  • Based on own professional experiences and supported by contemporary planning theory,

describe, analyse and critically discuss the context of the planning, planning processes and

the outcome of planning.

  • Based on own professional experiences and supported by contemporary planning theory,

reflect on how the above mentioned influence the preconditions for running complex

planning cases forward in your role as urban and regional planners/process leaders.

  • Discuss in-depth perspectives, methods and approaches that provide

preconditions for a operational cooperation across sectoral and organisational borders.

All this aims to achieve the overall objective of the course to deepen the understanding and ability that concern

process management and strategic planning capacity in complex planning conditions.
