Assessment 1: Project proposal (15%)
The Project Charter should explain the background of the organisation where this project will be carried out, the objectives of the project and the importance of this project to the organisation. The Charter includes a Business Case, Milestone Schedule, as well as any major problems or anticipated Risks with this project if they are known at this stage. The textbook provides detailed examples of what needs to be included in the Project Charter. These examples will assist in the development of the Project Charter for MyProject. The project should be of commercial consequence which demands a Return-On-Investment (ROI) analysis, and could be from one of the following categories depending on the type of business a student is involved in:
- an organisational project that a student is involved in as the organisation’s main line of business – to manage projects for your organisation or on behalf of others
- an activity that a student is convinced would benefit from being handled as a project
- an activity in which a student was involved in the past that was not carried out as a project, but one which you believe would have been managed better as a project. If you use this option you should describe how you would execute this activity now using the knowledge gained through this unit.
The project MUST NOT be any of the following except with written approval from your tutor or the Unit Assessor:
• a wedding event
- a project developing an App
- implementation of a change management initiative
- a Not-For-Profit event
- the establishment of a restaurant
- a farewell event
- a sporting, cultural or music event
The maximum word length for this assignment is 1,500 words excluding words used in any charts, templates, forms or diagrams that you have used to apply the knowledge areas.
- Students undertaking this unit for a second time must use a completely different project to the one they used in their previous attempt.
- Students are directed to the Activity to be completed at the end of Topic 1.
- The project must be undertaken in Australia and use Australian currency.
