|Total Marks: Submission:||100 Online|
|Due Date:||Week 4|
You are required to tender for the contract to manage the STH BNK by Beulah project. You must prepare a 10-minute video that you must present to the key stakeholders in the project.
The purpose of this assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate and determine project viability, including the analysis required in the selection process. This will also form a part of students’ ability to create project portfolios that meet an organisation’s strategic goals and requirements and analyse project lifecycles and the processes involved in project development. Students will also demonstrate the criteria required to evaluate the success of projects based on an organisation’s goals, strategy and standards.
Using the Project Strategy Framework of ‘Perspective, position and plan’, individually, you are required to tender for managing the STH BNK by Beulah project, as if you were bidding to the project stakeholders.
In recording your video, you must ensure you provide sufficient information to the project stakeholders regarding how your proposal will meet the current business needs and strategy as outlined in the Project documents. Be mindful that this is not an explanation of the theoretical concepts of the Project Strategy Framework.
Your tender must be linked to the case study to identify each of the key elements of the Project Strategic Framework, including the business background, objective and concept, the project’s definition, its competitive advantage or value, and success failure criteria. You are also expected to present the project definition and its strategic focus. In addition, your tender must demonstrate how you propose to deliver these results, clearly linked to the case study criteria of what is expected by the project stakeholders.
Once you have recorded your tender, you are then required to create a one-page infographic using Canva in which you are to summarise the key points of your video addressing the project stakeholders.
You are required to use at least 10 sources of information and use the Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. These may include government publications, industry reports, and journal articles. These sources must be presented in the video in the form of in-text citations and a reference list. Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ sites are not to be used.
Your video and infographic files must be submitted via MyKBS well before the deadline to avoid any possible technical difficulties. Please note that the assessment link will have two submission sections, one for the video and one for the infographic. Please be sure to attend the live assessment webinar to understand the logistics of this submission better.
For those students who have limited experience in recording videos, it is recommended to read the video FAQs document available to you under the assessments tab in MyKBS.
