Project planning and management

Y​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​ou are asked to critically evaluate a project and assess its characteristics in relation to project management methodologies, procedures and techniques taught in the module. Consider a project in which you have personally been involved or any project of your choice for which you are able to obtain a sufficient amount of information. Scrutinise the project management approach taken by critically analysing a number of apparent problems and explaining the impact these have had on the overall project delivery and/or its subsequent performance. The outcome of such project evaluation and associated problem solving is expected in terms of a set of solutions for future projects in the same area or of a similar scope/budget. These should be well informed by the established theory, industry best practice, or other projects you may have investigated. 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 2,500 words (+/-10%), including any exhibits, tables and figures, but excluding the reference list. All figures and tables should be consecutively numbered, and captions provided. Guidelines for the Resit: The resit should comply with the following formatting guidelines: Font / Size: Calibri/Arial/Times New Roman / 12 Spacing: 1.5 Page numbers required? Yes Margins: at least 2.54 to left and right and text ‘justified’ Referencing: full compliance with Harvard protocols Do not forget to indicate the total word count in your submis​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​sion.
