Simulated Scenario – Australian Hardware Store
You have recently been appointed as the Store Manager of the Australian Hardware Newcastle store.
You and the COO (Chief Operating Officer) have discussed opportunities for you to make an impact and improvements in relation to how the Newcastle store operates. An area for improvement that has been previously identified by the Human Resources Manager is around developing policies and procedures for your store. You have noticed the Wollongong store has already implemented policies and procedures which have made a positive operational impact on the store. These policies and procedures only require minor amendments before they can be utilised in your store. As these policies and procedures will be new to staff, it will be essential communicate these changes, as well as to organise and provide training to all staff.
To support you in developing and implementing the policies and procedures you have decided to develop a project plan, which will assist you with planning, monitoring and implementing your project.
The project will include:
· Amending Wollongong policies and procedures to suit the Newcastle store
· Creating a Newcastle Store section on the company Intranet
· Publishing policies and procedures to the Intranet
· Communicating the policies and procedures to staff
· Organising and providing training to all staff
· Collecting feedback from staff on new policies and procedures
The project will not include:
· Collecting feedback from staff on training
· Reviewing policies and procedures to identify whether further changes are required
You have spoken to the Newcastle store about the project that they undertook, and they have advised you that you are likely to encounter competing priorities between HR and department managers as department managers do not like to take their staff away from serving customers in order to attend training.

To use a Gantt chart, list the activities and tasks in column A, select an appropriate time interval days, weeks or months), allocate the dates to columns B onwards and plot the expected time duration (total time from start to completion) under the appropriate column by selecting shading from the cells. When you wish to provide a status report, simply color or shade in black those items that are completed or estimate the percentage complete. This will give you an immediate visual representation as to whether you are on schedule. You can add extra columns for assignment of responsibilities etc. For small projects, a Gantt chart can be created as a spreadsheet.
