Prof. Ray IUNIUS

Hospitality Project Development & Innovation

    This module aims to provide the participants with the experience of the developing a concept, the key terms linked to innovation and creativity and the process of managing projects in hospitality. Project management is a carefully planned and organized effort to accomplish a specific one-time objective, for example, constructing a hotel or implementing a major new F&B system. Project management includes developing a project plan, which involves defining and confirming the project goals and objectives, identifying tasks and how goals will be achieved, quantifying the resources needed, and determining budgets and timelines for completion. It also includes managing the implementation of the project plan, along with operating regular ‘controls’ to ensure that there is accurate and objective information on ‘performance’ relative to the plan, and the mechanisms to implement recovery actions where necessary. In this module, we invite you to develop a project in three days working in teams and developing your creativity.

    By the end of the Module, participants will be able to:
    • List the fundamentals of “design thinking”, an increasingly popular approach for fostering creativity and developing innovative solutions in everyday business
    • Identify key elements of a project and their interaction: time, resources, finances, according to the customer’s final objectives
