Project Management

Your task is to propose a new project. You could relate this to a past project or a project in progress; 

however, in the latter case you need to assume that you have been provided the opportunity to

replan the project towards better project performance.  

Write a report about your project. Your report must include:  

• A brief description of the organisational setting and project environment to ensure the

reader understands the context in which the project is set.  

• An outline of the objectives of the project and the importance of the project to the

organisation and project stakeholders.  

• An outline of the scope statement, project priorities and work breakdown structure (WBS),

which can serve as a sound basis for planning other aspects of the project.  

• A detailed overview and analysis of aspects of the project using project management

concepts, tools, and techniques taught in this subject; some of them may be more important to your

particular project than others.  

You should focus your analysis on at least three topics from the following list:  

o developing the project plan o 

scheduling project resources and 

costs o project risk and change 

control o monitoring project time 

and costs.  

Please note that any standalone appendices will not contribute towards your grade unless you

have outlined the key aspect of their content in the body of the report and used them to form the

basis of your arguments.
