The secondary purpose of this assignment is to give you the opportunity to consider the role of a continuous improvement plan within the strategic project management plans of a selected organisation.

The assignment will also give you the opportunity to enhance your analysis and written communication skills; particularly in the areas of structured assignment writing.

Structure

Your submission should be made using Microsoft Office documents and the essay submitted as a separate 2,000 word Microsoft WORD document.

The essay should contain a coherent, but necessarily restricted review of the academic literature on the project management topics in question.
