Assessment Task

This assignment is designed to provide you with a true-to-industry business-project experience. This project plan will form the basis of the client report you will produce by the end of the trimester. All successful projects should begin with a plan and resource allocation, which have been agreed to by all team members.

In this 1,000-word document, you will establish the parameters of your report, including the milestones.

Please refer to the Task Instructions for details on how to complete this task.

Context

This trimester you will actively contribute to a project team to deliver a business solution for a client. You will be provided with a client case study or business challenge for which you will provide recommendations via the completion of these assessments.

The assessment format is modelled on industry practice, and the subject is designed to leverage your knowledge of information systems management and industry techniques to help you transition to industry. All teams will complete one project focused on a client’s brief.

In completing this assessment, you will demonstrate key business/industry skills, including:

– Listening skills, including an ability to listen, understand and interpret client requirements;
– Communication skills, including an ability to succinctly and accurately deliver recommendations and outcomes;
– Team-work skills, including an ability to work in a team, negotiate and deliver outcomes;
– Creative problem-solving skills; and
– Processing and implementation skills, including an ability to process and action new information in a timely manner to produce outcomes.

Task Summary

This Capstone subject is designed to simulate an industry experience. All the assessments delivered are to be based on a client/organisation case study that your lecturer will provide to you.

The structure of the assignments is designed to simulate a real-world client/organisation project. The assessments will be completed sequentially and build on each other to deliver a final report and recommendation to the client/organisation. The structure for the assignments is as follows:

1. Each Week: From Week 2 (when your groups have been formed) you will deliver a project status report each week, present this status report to your lecturer in a one-on-one session and minute the outcomes. A copy of each status report and meeting minutes from weeks 2–9 inclusive are to be included as attachments as part of Assessment 3.

2. First Phase: Assessment 1—In the first phase, your team will develop your project plan. This will provide the structure and framework through which your team will develop Assessments 2 and 3. In addition, it will provide an overview of your understanding of your client and its key stakeholders. The details of Assessment 1 are included in this document.

3. Second Phase: Assessment 2—In the second phase, your group will develop and deliver a milestone report. In this report you will outline the client requirements, scope and customer profiles within the empathise and define phases of design thinking.

4. Third Phase: Assessment 3 — In the third phase, you will present your final recommendations/solutions to the client/organisation representative in two parts. In the first you will provide a written project report outlining your findings and recommendations. This report should also incorporate the feedback that has been provided to you over the trimester.

5. Final Presentation – in the final presentation you will then present this report as a team to your client/organisation representative.

Note: All status reports and meeting minutes (from weeks 2–9 10) must be included as attachments to this assignment.
