PROJMGNT 5021NA - Applied Project Management 1

Ngee Ann Academy - Trimester 1 - 2016

This course introduces the context, rationale, strategy and tactics of project management from the perspectives of key stakeholders. The main model followed it is the international Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK - US Based PMI), however comparisons are made with the U.K.?s PRINCE2. Participants will be expected to relate the application of PMBOK directly to projects from their experience, and as a course assignment will be able to apply what they have learnt to an actual work place project. The context and learning of the course will prepare participants with competencies to operate in a range of industries and apply the project management skills to projects in a variety of industries, including engineering, information technology, consulting, production, procurement, maintenance, logistics and supply chain, defence, construction, and manufacturing. The focus on providing competence in core areas of stakeholder, scope, time, cost and quality management, and facilitating areas of risk, procurement, HR, integration, and communication management is to provide competence in participants to confidentially deal with the ever growing challenges of modern day project management. PMBOK and PRINCE2 will be applied in developing competence suitable for a range of industries.

    Assessment Detail

    Assessment 1a: Individual Assignment 1a
    Weighting: 10%
    Due Date: see MyUni
    Submission Details: Online through MyUni

    Task:
    Describe 5 advantages and 5 disadvantages of using a project management approach based on model-based methodologies (specifically PMBOK and PRINCE 2). Using a suitable project example from your experience or reading, illustrate how one of these models - of your selection - will benefit your project compared to the other model (i.e. the comparative strength of the chosen model for a specific project). Also comment on how the models could be combined and how you would retain the benefits of each and correct for the deficiencies of each?

    Scope:
    This assignment will assess your understanding of the Project Context and Basics, Project Integration and Scope Management course topics.

    Length and Presentation:
    1000 words max in report format.

    Criteria by which your assignment will be marked:
    The standards by which the assignment will be assessed include understanding of principles and referencing these.

    Given the word limit on these questions, assessment will reward content included. There will be penalties for exceeding the word limit. Quotations do not count in the words counted.

    The objective of these questions is for the participant to consider the theoretical material supplied and attempt to apply it to a real project example. Therefore evidence of having read and understood the material is important.

    While 1000 words is only few words to cover a topic, marks will be given for the comprehensiveness of the content, evidence of additional reading, referencing these readings in the answer, and application.

    In answering these questions try and state principles as well as detail. Just reproducing PMBOK (especially cutting and pasting diagrams) is not enough!

    Task:
    What is the role of integration as defined by PMBOK, and what contribution it makes in project management? Why scope management is important and how would you control scope in a project? How do scenarios contribute to the project management? Describe the tools that you would use to collect requirements and generate at least 20 requirements to define scope for a particular project. Describe a test to assess whether 5 requirements had been achieved.

    A work-based project may be used. Sections developed by others (eg estimate or schedule) may be included provided it is clearly stated who developed each section. It should be made clear what your contribution to this project plan is.

    Please ensure you add page numbers to your assignment and it is advisable to add your name in the footer or header.

    I am comfortable with you including material developed by others (eg schedule), provided you make clear what you developed and what was developed by others.

    It should be evident that material covered in the course (structure of a project plan, including inputs, tools and techniques in most of the 9 functions (integration, scope, cost, etc) have influenced the project plan produced.

    While this is a comprehensive list, of items above, assignments may cover all of the areas or focus on scope, time, cost and risks comprehensively, and cover the remainder (quality, HR, communication, procurement plans) less thoroughly.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
