Scenario
You should select an organisation with which you are familiar and a strategic project in the organisation.  (preferably the organisation that you have being working

with and a project that you have been involved)  You should carry out research on it in order to develop a report on planning and implementing strategic change in the

functional area.  You should manage the change as a project.

You should perform ALL of the following tasks to meet the requirement of this assignment.
Task 1 – Develop a project specification
1.1    Analyse the factors that contribute to the process of selecting the concerned change. (Assessment Criteria 1.1)
1.2    Develop outline project specifications for the concerned change. (Assessment Criteria 1.2)
1.3    Produce a specification for the concerned project.  (Assessment Criteria 1.3)
Task 2 – Plan for the launch of a new product, service or process
2.1    Produce a project plan for the concerned change. (Assessment Criteria 2.1)
2.2    Identify appropriate resources to handle the project. (Assessment Criteria 2.2)
2.3    Estimate the cost all resources required for implementing the project.  (Assessment Criteria 2.3)
2.4    Propose timescales for the management and implementation of the project. (Assessment Criteria 2.4)
2.5    Plan an appropriate strategy for the implementation of the project. (Assessment Criteria 2.5)
Task 3 – Implement the project
3.1    Describe how to implement the project in accordance with agreed specification. (Assessment Criteria 3.1)
3.2    Develop appropriate measures to monitor and evaluate progress and outcomes of the project. (Assessment Criteria 3.2)
3.3    Describe how to monitor the implementation of the project.  (Assessment Criteria 3.3)
Task 4 – Evaluate the outcomes of the project
4.1    Describe how to analyse the outcomes of the project in terms of the original project specification. (Assessment Criteria 4.1)
4.2    Evaluate the outcomes of the project. (Assessment Criteria 4.2)
4.3    Make justified recommendations to improve the project based on the evaluation in 4.2.  (Assessment Criteria 4.3)
Task 5 – Present the outcomes of the project
5.1    Produce a report for all project procedures used in the project. (Assessment Criteria 5.1)
5.2    Describe how to present the outcomes of the project to the senior management team of the organisation.  (Assessment Criteria 5.2)
Student guidelines
1.    The report should be 5,000 – 7,000 words in length, excluding appendices.
2.    Please state the word count in the front cover of the report.
3.    The report should be word-processed.
4.    Please follow the Harvard system of referencing.
5.    Throughout your report you should underpin your empirical findings with theories from the literature showing how practice corresponds to or deviates from

theories.
6.    The choice of the project itself is the crucial factor for success in this assignment as it must provide the learner with sufficient scope to ensure that every

aspect of the assessment is addressed.   You may wish to consult your tutor with initial proposals concerning a potential change in the organisation you wish to study.
7.    If you choose a project that has already been completed in the organisation, you should not directly supply things already used by the organisation to avoid

plagiarism.  Plagiarism is a serious offense and will be dealt with accordingly.
Sources of information
1.    In some cases project management might not be explicit but implicit. You may therefore have to observe how projects are conducted. The search for evidence may

entail talking to senior managers, examining company documents and records (with permission), searching media archives etc.
