Project Management (ECM28EMD) –Fall 2014-R- CW2-All
Assessment – Individual Assignment (FALL 2014)
Weighting 100% of module coursework
Hand Out Date: 20th October 2014
Hand-in Date: 21st December 2014
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.
The module learning outcomes (1-4) are mapped to the following assessment criteria
(possible mark shown bracketed)
1. Assess the business case for a project (15)
2. Recommend a strategy for reduction of uncertainties and the management of
associated risk (15)
3. Recommend a suitable structure and process for the monitoring and control of
a project (20)
4. Select and apply appropriate planning and management tools for the project
(25)
5. Formulate a strategy for the implementation of change (15)
You have to choose between:
?
A suitable project area with which you are familiar, e.g. your workplace, or
?
A well-publicised disaster, requiring a significant and sustained response, or
?
A significant civil or construction, manufacturing or management (could also
be an information systems) project (but not a scientific research project)
?
If you still have issues you can email me or come and discuss

Project Management (ECM28EMD) –Fall 2014-R- CW2-All
Tasks:
With your chosen scenario:
o Briefly describe the initial structure – set baseline of the project
o Create a strategic project plan with:
?
A strategic project analysis exercise
o 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

The Project Plan should comprise of some of the following:
1. Business Case
2. Project Scope
3. Risk identification, analysis along with mitigation plan
4. Estimation plan
5. Resource Plan
6. Communications plan
7. Project Schedule (with Network analysis diagrams, PERT reports & Gantt Charts)
along with Critical Path and free, independent and total floats calculated.
8. Monitoring and Controlling Strategy
9. Acceptance Plan
10. Change Management details
The options above give scope for a great variety of responses. Given that, it would be
extremely odd if two people happened to produce similar reports and any such
similarities would be fairly easy to detect. Appropriate penalty would be applied under
such circumstances as per MEC PG regulations.
