Abstract Looks at the problems of achieving a relevant quality outcome in the minor thesis components of postgraduate coursework Master¿s degree programmes. Considers how the quality of course deliverables can be enhanced through innovative approaches to demonstrating mastery of the research process, such as using the World Wide Web in conjunction with case study investigations. Argues that the skills developed through critical analysis of case studies is crucial to a project manager¿s ability to function effectively and in a way that meets the clients¿ service quality expectations. Examines two case study investigations from a Master of Project Management degree, with reference to a demonstrated need for project managers to prove their capacity to view problems from multiple frames of reference. The examples illustrate the unique opportunities to present multiple frames of reference offered through development of Websites linked both internally and externally to wider sources of information, and provide an exciting and novel contribution to the management of project management courses. The principles presented also have wider appeal across management and other academic disciplines.
