Lublin University of Technology (POLAND)
Nowadays, many organizations are project-oriented. The projects may be investment (strategic) or business (customer-oriented). They can be separate or create so-called portfolio of projects. A key to success is primarily projects manager with relevant competence and efficient, competent team. Information tools play also an important role for efficient project management and communication between stakeholders.

Project Management (PM) requires adequate knowledge and different skills of the project manager. On the one hand these are the basic competencies (cognitive, social, personal), on the other hand executive powers (business, corporate, managerial), and on the third one competences related to the skillful use of ICT and computer tools for project management.

Project Management is the subject included in the majority of programs in Faculty of Management and Computer Science of Polish universities. Also the subject of Project Portfolio Management implemented using a variety of platforms occurs occasionally. Teaching methods used in the teaching of this subject are: a lecture combined with the practical implementation of the project, in which students simulate the work of the project manager, resource manager, portfolio manager or a member of the project team. IT tool used in the classroom is a MS Project or EPM platform.

Educational problems relate to the lack of experience of students in the field of PM, lack of knowledge and skills in area of management (IT students) or information science (management students). Challenges facing the lecturer of the course are: learning of teamwork, personalized training (tutoring), implementation of modern methodologies and ICT tools to PM and effective communication in the project team.
