Assessment
Description You are required to form groups of Fou
Five (4/5)
students and choose an IS/IT project. See Appendix 1.
You need to develop the Initial Project Plan which
should include the following:
• Project charter, including a detailed Scope Statement,
Out of scope, Goal, Objectives, a draft project “Work
Breakdown Structure” (WBS) or Task List, that must
also show dependencies
• Stakeholder Registe
• Stakeholder Management Strategy
(In Assessment 2, you will continue to develop the full
Project Plan).
Referencing and Plagiarism
It is essential to use IN TEXT referencing. If you are using
the exact words from a reference then you must use
quotation marks.
You can use Chicago Style referencing with numbers, with a
listing at the end of the essay. Microsoft Word has an
EndNote plugin that makes this style very easy and clear to
follow.

Alternatively, you can use the more traditional Harvard style,
which is more ve
ose.

Remember that this is a Turnitin assignment and plagiarism
will be subject to severe penalties. Please refer to the AIH

Appendix 1
Some examples of IS/IT projects:
1. Creating an additional net-worked lab of computers at a local private College in Sydney.
2. e-Commerce Website Development for a Company selling shoes.
3. Health Information System for patients' remote monitoring.
4. Migration to Office 365 in a Travel Agency.
5. Customising a Data Base Management System for a Real Estate Agency.
You can also choose any other IS/IT project outside of this list as well; refer to the prescribed text book or other project management related
sources to get ideas on which project to choose. I
espective of the project you choose; you could incorporate some of the following tasks, if
appropriate for your project.
• Hire a consultant to assist with identifying a suitable System.
• Recruit the project team of internal and external staff.
• Trial a short list of suitable systems with input from the Project Management Champions about their major pain points.
• Gain agreement with major Stakeholders on the prefe
ed System.
• Negotiate with the Vendor, with the assistance of the Purchasing Department and procure the licenses.
• Implement the chosen System, and measure the Return on Investment (ROI) and degree of customer satisfaction.
• Train users and IT maintenance staff across the whole organisation.
Work out the project budget. The goals are to gain project approval, determine the best solution, implement the solution, monitor performance
and ensure benefits realisation.

The project manager will act as the liaison between internal and external stakeholders. The project is expected to be completed within 8 months. CIO,
John Clinton is very keen to get this project off the ground as quickly as possible. As a result, he is happy to put in a word for the nominations from the
software centres. This is the first step in getting buy-in from the software centres. The Project Management Champions will then form their centre specific
teams with your help. You will report to the Steering Committee on a monthly basis on the progress of the project and discuss road blocks/issues if any.
APPENDIX 2
Equal Contribution of Group Members
It will be assumed that all group members contribute equally and hence will receive the same mark for the group part of the
assignment. You are required to complete the Peer Review Form. This can be downloaded as a Word file and submitted individually by
all group members through the Moodle assignment submission tool.
• If you consider that a group member has not contributed significantly, then you can nominate that person in the form.
• If you do not want to list the name of that student, you should contact your lecturer directly and inform him.
• Each member of the group should complete and submit a Peer Review Form.
A common problem encountered with students is that some members of groups do not contribute sufficiently. This includes not attending the
weekly workshop/laboratory sessions. If a member of any group is not acting in a responsible manner, please attempt to resolve the problem
with the student in question in a mature, adult fashion.
If such a course of action fails, it is the duty of the group to email to the lecturer so that alternative assessment a
angements can be made. If
the problem is not outlined in writing to the lecturer before the end of Week 10, the group will have to live with the problem. The final decision
about assessment will rest with the lecturer. In extreme cases this will involve the non-contributing student(s) undertaking all of the group
assessment tasks individually.
