Task 2.1 : Team Logistics & First Meeting        (2 marks)                
You will work in a team.
Your student ID last digit determines your group.
If your student ID ends in :
1 and 2, you are in Team A
3 and 4, you are in Team B
5 and 6, you are in Team C
7 and 8, you are in Team D
9 and 0, you are in Team E
If you have an alphabet at the end of your student ID, just use the last digit before the alphabet.
Some teams will be bigger, some teams will be smaller. You cannot change teams unless you happen to be the only person in that team. In that case, please contact your lecturer. For Study Centres where classes are large, your lecturer may need to move a few students around so that there is equity for teams.
At the end of your meeting with your lecturer for the week indicated, you should know which team you are in.
This subject operates on the premise that your presence in class is very important.
For online students, attendance at Online Meetings are encouraged. If you are unable to attend, view the recording and check the postings in Discussions.

Melbourne groups will start with MEL-01, MEL-02, etc.
Sydney, Brisbane and Port Macquarie (SYD, BNE and PQQ)
Online Students will start with CSU-01, CSU-02, etc.
This is to prevent confusion later when assignments are moderated.

1. (My name) __________________________________
2. ___________________________________________
3. ___________________________________________
4. ___________________________________________
5. ___________________________________________

Six members is maximum per team; contact your lecturer if you have more than six.
Team numbers and members may be moved by the lecturer as we expect late students or students leaving the subject.
The methods you choose to contact each may vary. For Face-to-Face meetings, Skype and any online chat software – please provide a short summary of your meeting. You can write this in point form and provide the date and time of the meeting.
You can use this template. Or you may choose to use the one from the textbook (p XXXXXXXXXX.)

At the end of each meeting, please rate yourselves for participation.
This is your Rating Scores for each meeting and it is to be posted after each meeting.
(You would have learnt about this from Assignment 1)
1. (Your name)_________________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
2. _____________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
3. _____________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
4. _____________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
5. _____________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
6. _____________________________ ( _______ out of 10 )
The leader for this meeting is _________________________________.
This leader is responsible for posting Meeting Minutes and entering these marks onto the spreadsheet as well, and then posting this spreadsheet up. Leaders must be rotated. It is left to the group to decide how rotation is to be done.
When you have completed this Meeting Summary, cut and paste it into Discussions within 24 hours. This becomes an evidence of your team meeting. If you are chatting via text online, please summarise your discussions; do not cut and paste hundreds of lines of chat. If you submit it an hour or a day before assignment deadline, it does not provide much validity that you have done your work in a consistent manner. In this case, the whole group may be penalised.
If someone a
ives late for a meeting without suitable reason or cause, points may be deducted. If you participate wholeheartedly, please give 10 out of 10. The marker will take this into consideration for your final mark for this assignment. Students who do not participate or absent themselves will get low ratings and marks scaled accordingly. If no mark is entered, the marker will assume it to be zero.
Example:
If there were 5 meetings, the perfect participation score should be 5 x 10 = 50.
If a student scored a total of 25, it means that half the participation marks will only be awarded. This was taught in detail in Assignment 1 Casebook.
Note : Two important items to be posted to Discussions : Minutes and Rating Scores.
Every member must copy-and-paste Meeting Minutes into Journal so marks can be allocated. The FINAL Rating Score sheet must be posted to Discussions as well, just
efore date due.
Rating Scores for meetings posted after each Meeting, but only the FINAL Master Rating
Sheet is posted just before due date.

Task 2.2 : Read the Case and Assumptions    (1 mark)        
Please note that this case will be used in the final exam. The case as printed here will be printed in the exam booklet. You do not have to remember case details here.
A philanthropist has decided to renovate and equip state-of-the-art buildings near a university campus in the following areas:
For Melbourne students: Building located on Little Collins Street in Melbourne CBD
For Sydney students: Building located on Riley Street off Oxford Street in Darlinghurst
For Brisbane students: Building on Albert Street in Brisbane CBD
For Port Macquarie students: Building on Major Innes Road in Port Macquarie
For Online students:  Building is along Estella Road, Estella (Wagga Wagga)
This person, who wishes to remain anonymous is planning to give an entire building space for the purpose of university students’ accommodation and related amenities which will include a dining café, recreation area, li
ary, mini-theatre, underground multi-level secure bicycle and car park, gym and indoor pool. There is also a floor dedicated to health and beauty services, medical & dental clinic and a multi-faith prayer room and counselling services. These amenities and space is available to all 500 resident students only.
A building next door which is accessible to the public includes a supermarket, pharmacy, a newsagent, an event hall and a 24-hour restaurant. Public bus services and taxis are available easily outside the building.
For the project this session, your focus is on developing a system for entry-exit into the 24-hour dining café which serves a number of cuisines round the clock. All food and drink is included in the annual residential fee. However, for kitchen control purposes, a recording system of some sort is required and this is part of the task.
The project also seeks to poll residents the type of cuisines they want so that an appropriate changeover can happen in the next quarter.
For the purposes of this assignment if you do not want to name the cuisines – you may use Cuisine A, Cuisine B and so on. It can be provisioned in a multi-caterer environment or a single contractor environment. You will need to plan how to roll out services of this dining café starting January 2020.
Unfortunately, a previous company running this project has gone bankrupt and this project is now abandoned. All their company executives and ex-employees are no longer around. Here are some of the conditions that they have worked upon which your team must continue to honour due to contractual obligations with the university.
1. The café is to be operated by four big food providers:
Australia Fried Chicken (serving fried chicken, chips and salad)
SandwichWay (serving open sandwich with a multitude of add-ons)
Hungry Kebabs (serving kebabs and meat platters)
Rice, Lentils & Cu
ies (serving savory food from the Asian sub-continent)
2. All outlets will have to be open 24 hours, 7 days per week. However, menu may vary after hours.
3. All food and drinks are included in the annual residence charge. There is not to be any financial exchange. No takeaways are allowed. Guests may be permitted into the café area if accompanied by a resident student.
Project Team Assumptions:
This will be similar for all members of the group. Leader to minute discussion and post to Discussions.
1. Your team will have all the residents email contact for the year 2020.

DOCUMENT PURPOSE
The Project Charter documents the formal conversation between the Project Sponsor and the Project Manage
Team Leader, including identifying metrics of success for the project. Once approved, the Project Charter communicates the cu
ent agreement between the Project Sponsor and the Project Team throughout the lifecycle of a project. The Charter provides a high-level overview of the project including the definition of project success, and project resource (people and funds) requirements.
Requests and additions to the project scope are considered “out-of-scope” for the cu
ent project. When a scope change is required, document a change request that includes an impact analysis of project cost, resources, schedule, and risk. The Project Sponsor then formally approves the scope change request. The project manager will retain additional documents that provide detail on the management of the project, including a communications plan, an issues log, a risk log, a change management plan, a budget, and a work schedule.
