Case Study for Project Management Assignment – QAB020N503H
Note: The following is entirely hypothetical. It is not actually happening, but you are required to prepare some documentation as if it were a real project. QA Higher Education (QAHE) has just completed a refurbishment of its teaching rooms and computing labs in the London (London students), Birmingham (Birmingham students) and Manchester (Manchester students) premises, to ensure students and staff all have an excellent learning environment and access to the latest technology to support their studies and teaching. The university wishes to have a major launch event to publicise this (it may help attract students and make the university more competitive) and to celebrate the success of the project. You are the project manager for this event, scheduled to take place during Freshers’ Week in September. You will need to plan this event carefully, ensuring that it is scheduled correctly within the calendar of events and includes formal ceremony, informal opportunity for staff and students to get tours of the building, celebratory elements including food and drink, invitations to local/national dignitaries (remember who opened the building originally!), etc. The main project sponsor is the Managing Director, represented on the project by the Director of Operations. and you have been told the budget for this launch is approximately £50,000.
Note that considerable class time will be devoted to guiding you and helping you complete these tasks so attendance at the classes will be of immense use in achieving a good assignment mark. Reasonable assumptions can be made throughout (and indeed are necessary) and students are encouraged to ask for clarification whenever necessary. Also note that you are not expected to have any specific technical knowledge of architecture, building refurbishment or events management, hence any reasonable assumptions may be made (must be stated clearly) and your lecturers will be happy to advise where necessary.
Your work will be marked on the quality of the documentation and understanding of the techniques used and not on how well you have shown you can plan an event
IMPORTANT: It is absolutely essential that your answers are well referenced. This means that published work (text books, journals, other printed material such as newspapers and credible magazine articles) is used to illustrate your points to enhance the validity and credibility of your work. Web sites may also be used although in some instances they are less reliable (not peer reviewed or subject to editorial constraints) and hence should be used sparingly. Failure to reference correctly may result in a particularly poor mark and possible failure. In contrast, good and extensive use of relevant references that inform and enhance your work will be awarded high marks.
