Case study: Organizing a world class sporting event emphasizing on lean project management.

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 responses 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 rubric). 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.

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.

Word count limit (excluding references and appendix). Your submission should be made using Microsoft WORD document of 2,500 – 3,000 words. Text length less than 2500 words will be penalized by 5% of the total available marks while text beyond the 3000 word limit shall attract a penalty as follows:

3001 – 3300 words: 5 marks

3301 – 3600 words: 10 marks

more than 3601 words: 15 marks

Academic language. All submissions should be thoroughly proof-read for spelling, typographical or grammatical errors 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 error.

Academic Integrity

All assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources) using Turn tin (TII). If you are found to have plagiarized material or if you have used someone else’s words without appropriate referencing, you will be penalized 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.

  1. The processes from PMBOK or Prince2 that you would use to help with the stakeholder management

  1.            In what ways would you have implemented lean project management for this event? (You need to identify and elaborate the areas and opportunities where you can eliminate waste).

Important Information

Formatting. The report should be presented in 1.5 line spacing, 12 point Times New Roman font. Report section headings and numbering 1.0, 1.1.2 etc. is expected.

Supporting diagrams / figures may be presented in other formats – Excel, PowerPoint slides, PDF documents, as part of the appendix and will not count towards the essay’s word limit. The reference list will also not be included in the word count.

Tables should be placed in the report. It should be labelled correctly (Table 1, Table 2 etc) and shall be included in the word count.

The submission should contain a coherent, but necessarily restricted review of the academic literature on the project management topics in question. The literature review should be integrated into the essay, not a separate section. Do not include an executive summary or an abstract.

This assessment item involves researching your assigned topic to enhance your understanding of lean project management concepts and utilisation of academic literature.
