Project Management

Brief:

Imagine that you are planning a trip to London with your group. Decide who will go, when it will be, how you will travel, where you will stay, what you will do there etc. Think through the research, decisions, planning and execution phases, then:

a) Create a suitable work breakdown structure for all activities including the project management process and a network diagram based the WBS, with critical path. Include 20-30 work packages (25%);

b) Create an appropriate, resource levelled project plan for the 20-30 work packages, using MS Project (25%);

c) Carry out a risk management exercise for the project using a probability/impact matrix and create a risk register with 10-15 events, including details of planned responses (25%);

d) Critically analyse how the use of these tools improved the efficiency and effectiveness of the project management process and your control over the delivery project within time, cost and quality constraints (25%).

Sections (a), (b) and (c) of the report should give a detailed explanation of the tools and techniques in question, together with how they have been applied to this project and the benefits of doing so. Then the diagrams, the schedule and the risk list themselves should be put into appropriate appendices, NOT within the body of the report.
