Assessment 1 Specification
Individual Assessment (40%)

Due Date: 23:55 AEST Week 9, Friday (20 September, 2019)
Length: 2500 – 3000 words (excluding references and appendix)
Case: Implementing lean project management to build your dream home.
Introduction
You have taken up a new job in Perth, Western Australia. Both your partner and you are very
keen on wanting to build your own home. You come across the Keystart initiative
(https:
www.keystart.com.au/) by the government of Western Australia and have found out
that you and your partner are eligible to apply. You have decided to submit an application, but
will have to do the following:
• Identify the subu
you want to build and decide the land size you want to buy (this
will depend on the budget you are willing to spend on the land)
• Research the market and identify potential home builders who will construct your
dream home.
• Finalise the layout /design and agree on the cost to build the house with the chosen
uilder
• Enter into a deal
o Sign a land contract with the land developer – you will need to pay a deposit of
AUD$2000
o Sign a Pre-Work Construction (PWC) contract with the builder - you need to
pay a deposit of AUD$2000
(in both contracts you have inserted the following clause: Deposit to be returned to
client (in full) in the event of failure to obtain finance approval).
• Finally, you are now ready to submit an application to Keystart (can be done through
the builder) to obtain finance to build your dream home.
The above activities can be efficiently managed through key project management processes.
Where possible, you can also aim to implement lean project management principles to
successfully manage the above activities.

Important Information
Formatting. The writeup should be presented in 1.5 line spacing, 12 point Times New Roman

This assessment item involves researching your assigned topic to enhance your understanding
of lean project management concepts and utilisation of academic literature. Whilst you use the
ecommended textbooks and lecture materials, you may also refer to relevant peer reviewed,
academic journal articles. A reference list formatted in the prescribed APA style is compulsory.

General Assessment Criteria
Incomprehensible submissions. Assessments provide the opportunity for students to
demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment
esponses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot determine
that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be
marked according to the marking criteria (accompanied by the marking ru
ic). Failing to meet
the requirements may result in 0 (zero) marks where relevant.
Do not reproduce statements from PMBOK or PRINCE2 or any other references
without proper context.
Example 1:
Leadership is knowledge, skills, and behavior required to guide, motivate and direct a team to
achieve its business goals (copied from page 56 of PMBOK), as this is considered plagiarism,
instead you must show how you would apply that statement to your case.
Example 2:
PMBOK version 6 constitutes 10 knowledge areas, 5 process groups and 49 process activities
or PRINCE2 consists of 7 Principles, 7 Themes and 7 Processes.
PPMP20009 Leading Lean Projects XXXXXXXXXXTerm 2, 2019
Page 4 of 5
Produce your answers for the case in question. DO NOT write about the theory or
explain what PMBOK, PRINCE2, DMAIC methodology, etc covers. That will not
attract any marks. You should demonstrate the application of the best practices not the
theory.
Discuss with your lecturer / tutor if you need help.
Word count limit (excluding references and appendix). Your submission should be made
using a Microsoft WORD document of 2,500 - 3,000 words. Text length less than 2500 words
will be penalised by 5% of the total available marks while text beyond the 3000 word limit will
attract a penalty as follows:
• XXXXXXXXXXwords: 5 marks
• XXXXXXXXXXwords: 10 marks
• more than 3601 words: 15 marks
Late penalty. Late submissions will attract penalties at 5% for each calendar day or part thereof
that it is late of the total available mark for the individual assessment item. This means that, for
an assessment worth 40 marks, the mark that you earn is reduced by 2 marks each calendar day
that the assessment is late (including part-days and weekends). See s4.58 in the Assessment
Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).
Check with marking criteria. Before submitting your assignment you should check it against
the assessment criteria and the marking ru
ic included in this specification to ensure that you
have satisfactorily addressed all the criteria that will be used to mark your assignment.
Academic language. All submissions should be thoroughly proof-read for spelling,
typographical or grammatical e
ors before being submitted. Do not reply on the ‘spell-check’
function in your word processing program. If, for example, ‘affect’ is substituted for ‘effect’,
your program may not detect the e
or.
Academic Integrity
All assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or
material copied from other sources) using TurnItIn (TII). If you are found to have plagiarised
material or if you have used someone else’s words without appropriate referencing, you will
e penalised for plagiarism which could result in 0 (zero) marks for the whole assignment. In
some circumstances a more severe penalty may be imposed. The link to the University’s
Academic Misconduct Procedures is available in the unit profile.
