PROJECT MANAGEMENT ASSIGNMENT -

Learning Outcomes - This assessment is designed to demonstrate the achievement of the intended module learning objectives. On completion of the assessment, students are able to:

1. Assess the business case for a project and recommend a strategy for reduction of uncertainties and the management of associated risk.

2. Recommend a suitable structure and process for monitoring and control of a project.

3. Select and apply appropriate tools and techniques for the planning and management of a project.

4. Formulate a strategy for the implementation of change.

Introduction: You are required to develop a strategic project plan in the form of a document not more than 4000 words, excluding appendices and references. There is considerable freedom of choice for a suitable project scenario. But, whatever scenario you choose, assessment is against specific criteria that originate in the module learning outcomes.

You have to choose between:

  • A suitable project area with which you are familiar, e.g. project at your workplace, or
  • A well-publicized disaster, requiring a significant and sustained response, or
  • A significant IT, Engineering, civil or construction, manufacturing or management project (but not a scientific research project)

If you still have issues you can email me or come and discuss.

Tasks: With your chosen scenario:

Briefly describe the initial structure as mentioned in the detail- set baseline of the project

Create a strategic project plan with: A strategic project analysis exercise

A change strategy with enough detail for:

  • A business case
  • Project planning and management tools
  • Monitoring and control structure
  • A risk reduction strategy using an appropriate approach to risk identification.
