Project Scenario – Electric Bus Transport Ltd (fictitious company)

In connection with the UK Government choice to go green (UK enshrines new target in law to slash emissions by 78% by 2035 and bring the UK more than three-quarters of the way to net zero by 2050) a new company has been established by a pool of investors to build a fleet of electric busses for local and intra-cities transport. The company wants to establish a Project Management Office (PMO) to manage the analysis and selection of the technology evolutionto be progressively integrated into the company systems (from new batteries to charging points and electricity generation). The company will periodically launch projects to upgrade their infrastructure and systems and, to this extent, it is required that there is a clear processand methodology for the selection first and implementation then of these projects. In order to achieve these objectives eBUS Senior Management Team (SMT) commissioned your ProjectManagement & Operation Consultancy Ltd to carry out a very detailed research into current best-practice project management methodologies (PMM). They expect to receive your detailed and justified recommendations for a suitable PMM to adopt in their new Project Management Office (PMO).

You are expected to provide a logically structured and well-written practical business report produced in professional format suitable to be presented to the customer’s Senior Management Team (SMT). The report should include persuasive arguments that apply critical thinking to support and justify your choice, supported by correctly cited references. Your report must be limited to 3000 word (± 10% excluding tables and appendices).

The report should include a criticalreview and of Project Management Methodologies (PMMs) based on literature using multiple sources and including a diagram showing at least 10 key PMM and their origin over a Timeline. This should be the basis for recommending a justified PMM Selection to be implemented in the customer’s organisation along with the benefits the adoption of the recommended PMM will bring.

The report should clearly describe the implementation steps to be followed to implement the proposed PMM using a Change Management Cycle (McKinsey’s change management framework,John Kotter’s change management model, the Prosci ADKAR process, and the Deming PDCA/PDSA Cycle) along with the PMM Implementation Success Criteria and Measurement against which thePMM implementation will be monitored and assessed.

Your report should, therefore, be structured as follows:

  • Include a cover page
  • Include an abstract
  • Include a table of content and a reference section
  • Include a Project Management Methodologies (PMMs) literature review and a diagramshowing at least 10 key PMM and their origin over a Timeline.
  • Recommend a justified PMM Selection and the expected benefits
  • Clearly describe the implementation guidelines using a Change Management Cycle
  • Clearly describe the PMM Implementation Success Criteria and Measurement The Table below summarises the marking distribution:

  • Description of the benefits the selected PMM entails (10 marks)

  1. You are expected to use the APA referencing format. For support and advice on how this works students can contact Centre for Academic Writing (CAW).
  2. Please notify your registry course support team and module leader for disability support.
  3. Any student requiring an extension or deferral should follow the university process as outlined here.
  4. The University cannot take responsibility for any coursework lost or corrupted on disks, laptops or personal computer. Students should therefore regularly back-up any work and areadvised to save it on the University system.
  5. If there are technical or performance issues that prevent students submitting coursework through the online coursework submission system on the day of a coursework deadline, an appropriate extension to the coursework submission deadline will be agreed. This extension will normally be 24 hours or the next working day if the deadline falls on a Friday or over the weekend period. This will be communicated via your Module Leader.
  6. Assignments that are more than 10% over the word limit might result in a deduction of 10% of the mark i.e. a mark of 60% will lead to a reduction of 6% to 54%. The word limit includes quotations, but excludes the bibliography, reference list and tables.
  7. You are encouraged to check the originality of your work by using the draft Turnitin links onyour Aula Web.
  8. Collusion between students (where sections of your work are similar to the work submitted by other students in this or previous module cohorts) is taken extremely seriously and will be reported to the academic conduct panel. This applies to both courseworks and exam answers.
  9. A marked difference between your writing style, knowledge and skill level demonstrated in class discussion, any test conditions and that demonstrated in a coursework assignment may result in you having to undertake a Viva Voce in order to prove the coursework assignment is entirely your own work.
  10. If you make use of the services of a proof-reader in your work, you must keep your original version and make it available as a demonstration of your written efforts.
  11. You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or for another qualification of this university, unless this is specifically provided for in your assignment brief or specific course or module information.

Where earlier work by you is citable, i.e. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently will also be considered to be self-plagiarism.

When writing any form of essay or academic assignment you will often need to support your arguments by referring to other published work such as books, peer reviewed journal or newspaper articles, government reports, dissertations and theses, and material from the Internet. You will need to give accurate references:

  • To give credit to other authors' concepts and ideas
  • To provide the reader (often the marker/examiner of the assignment) with evidence of the breadth and depth of your reading
  • To enable the readers of your work to locate the references easily
  • To avoid being accused of plagiarism, an academic offence which can lead to loss of marks,

Academic offences, including plagiarism, incur very penalty in the Coventry University. Any studentwho is proven to have committed an academic offence may be placing his or her degree in jeopardy. It is your responsibility as a student to make sure that you understand what constitutes an academic offence, and in particular, plagiarism and how to avoid it.
