Assignment – Project Planning & Management ‐ Final Portfolio (Summative)
LO1 Applying essential project management methods and tools, and integrate their results utilising a systems approach.
LO2 Synthesise a comprehensive project master plan and an effective delivery strategy.
LO3 Critically evaluate the contribution of wider issues, such as quality or risk management, in a project environment.
LO4 Critically evaluate and recommend the most appropriate techniques for managing a project.
Description of Assessment Task and Purpose:
Below you can find a detailed description of the report assessment requirements.
Task: The learning outcomes MO1‐4 will be assessed through the production of a report. You are asked to compare, contrast and critically evaluate a pair of projects from a single reference class (e.g. stadium construction, disaster relief, high‐speed rail development, enterprise automation, new product development, Olympic Games, music festivals, political campaigns, etc) – Aviation Related Required
You may consider projects in which you have personally been involved or any projects of your choice
(Aviation Related) for which you are able to obtain a sufficient amount of information.
Scrutinise the project management approach taken in each of the chosen projects and elicit their salient (positive or negative) features and relevant practices, analysing and explaining the impact these have had on the overall project delivery and/or subsequent operational performance.
The outcome of such project evaluation and comparison is expected in terms of a recommended set of definite rules and practices for future projects in the same class and of the similar scope/budget (‘Best Practice’).
Your standpoint should be balanced, and the analysis well‐written, generously complemented with suitable references to the relevant, contemporary project management literature as well as referring to personal experiences, observations and insights where appropriate.
The presented analysis should be based on appropriate and substantial research, which must be evidenced in the report. A mere composition of case studies taken straightaway from certain sources without your own in‐depth elaboration, critical evaluation and synthesis of original recommendations will not be deemed a highly original contribution and, consequently, will attract low marks.
The report should be including any exhibits, tables and figures, but excluding the reference list. All figures and tables should be consecutively numbered, and captions provided.
Additional Information for Completion of Assessment
Ensure all sources referenced in your assessment are correctly listed according to the Harvard
System of referencing.
Include only sources that you have cited in the work. If you consult any sources which you have not cited, they should be listed in a Bibliography.
It is very Assignment – Project Planning & Management ‐ Final Portfolio (Summative)
Project management is the process of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. It’s a complex process that requires a variety of skills and tools. In this blog post, we will discuss some essential project management methods and tools that you can use to ensure success for your next project. Let’s get started!
One of the most important aspects of successful project management is effective communication. Without clear and concise communication, it will be very difficult to coordinate all of the moving parts of a project. A good project manager will establish clear channels of communication between all stakeholders and ensure that everyone is on the same page.
Another essential element of successful project management is proper planning. A well-executed plan will ensure that all tasks are completed on time and within budget. The best way to create a comprehensive plan is to use project management software like Wrike or Trello. These tools allow you to track progress, set deadlines, and allocate resources effectively.
Finally, it’s important to have a solid understanding of risk management. No project is without risk, but a good project manager will identify and mitigate risks before they have a chance to impact the project negatively.
There are many different techniques that can be used for risk management, but one of the most effective is called Monte Carlo simulation. This technique uses computer-generated models to help assess the likelihood of different risks occurring.
By following these essential project management methods and tools, you can set your next project up for success. Clear communication, proper planning, and effective risk management are key to ensuring a successful outcome.
