Your task

You are required to tender for the contract to project manage the new Sydney Cruise Terminal. Based on the attached case study, you are to prepare a 10-minute video in which you must present to the key stakeholders in the project.

Assessment Description.

The purpose of this assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate and determine project viability, including the analysis required in the selection process. This will also form a part of students’ ability to create project portfolios that meet an organisation’s strategic goals and requirements as well as analyse project lifecycles and the processes involved in project development. Students will also demonstrate the criteria required to evaluate the success of projects based on an organisation’s goals, strategy and standards.

Assessment Instructions

Using the Project Strategy Framework, individually, you are to present a proposal for managing the project to build the new Sydney Cruise Terminal, as if you were delivering a tender to stakeholders. You will also produce a 500-word supporting document with the relevant information and salient points of your presentation for stakeholders’ reference.

In recording your video, you will address the criteria of the Project Strategy Framework of why what and how ensuring you provide sufficient information to stakeholders regarding how your proposal will meet the current business needs and strategy as outlined in the case study.

Your proposal should be linked to the case study and identify each of the key elements of the strategic framework including the business background, objective and concept, the definition of your project as well as its competitive advantage or value as well as the success and failure criteria. You will also be expected to present a project definition and strategic focus.

Your video should clearly demonstrate how your team propose to deliver these results, clearly linked to the case study criteria of what is expected by stakeholders.

Assessment Information

You will also be required to produce a 500-word supporting document, with the key points of your presentation, as if this was to be distributed to stakeholders. You can use any format you feel is appropriate for this document to convey a summary of the information you have covered, but this must contain the information that would be relevant for its intended audience.

You are required to use at least 10 sources of information and use Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ sites are not to be used. These may include government publications, industry reports, and journal articles.
