projects:

• A New YouTube Channel for Project Management Students

• A New Sustainability Magazine for Construction Project Managers

SEMESTER 1 2021/22

This task will evaluate your ability to plan a project by utilising the knowledge and skills gained
from the sessions, and your own independent study. Your report should be guided by relevant
theories and concepts and it is important to include academic research to underpin your analysis
and provide a critical discussion where applicable in each section of the project plan.

The following is a suggested structure to help guide your Project Plan:

(Word count excludes text in tables and figures)

1. Business Case
Develop an LFA Table to help describe the project. You may want to include a description
of the overall project plan. You may also want to list similar previous existing projects
where relevant. Use this section to primarily justify your project and discuss the overall
merits of the project.

2. Scope Management
Develop a WBS to help identify the overall scope of the project. Outline project objectives
and deliverables. You may want to discuss time and cost allocations. The WBS is an
opportunity to justify each task and to discuss how they relate to the overall project plan.

3. Stakeholder Management
Develop a RACI Matrix to identify key stakeholders of your project. Explain the
relationships, responsibilities, and actions of the project team in supporting the project
implementation.

4. Risk Management
Develop a Risk Register to help identify key risk factors in your project. Analyse the impact
potential, which is the risk exposure of the identified risk factors. Plan risk mitigation
strategies for key identified risks.

Suggested Overall Structure:

• Title Page (module code/name, assessment number/title, student ID, tutor name, and
word count)

• Table of Contents (list of all headings and sub-headings)

• List of Tables & Figures (list of all tables and figures)

implementation of your chosen project. You may refer to high quality sources and references
primarily stemming from academic journals if relevant.
