Project management assignment for MBA
The purpose of the assignment is to explore the application of concepts, tools and techniques covered in this subject and to present a report based on your findings. Assignment task
Develop a project proposal for a new project;
The assignment might be based on:
A proposal for a potential new project that you or your organization have in mind (I suggest bringing a new mountain bike to market, or similar type of product);
The assignment report should include:
a) A brief description of the organisational setting (e.g. mountain bike company like Ibis) and the project environment to ensure the assignment examiner understands the context in which the project is set.
b) An outline of the objectives of the project and the importance of the project to the organisation.
c) A detailed overview and analysis of the use of relevant concepts, tools and techniques involved in project management. This section should comprise the main part of your assignment and should consist of an overview and analysis of the relevant project concepts covered in the subject. At a minimum, there should be a mention of at least the following concepts:
How the project should be defined
How project times and costs are estimated
A discussion of the project plan
The management of project risk
Project team issues
Project performance management
Note that although all of these concepts should be mentioned, some of them may be more important for your particular project than others. In these instances, you should feel free to focus your analysis more heavily on the more important issues as they impact your project.
