IT Project Management Course: Tasks and Group Project Guidelines

Weekly MS Project Exercises

1. Task: You will individually undertake the weekly MS Project Exercises provided by the lecturer. Answer the questions asked for that exercise on the VLE (Moodle) and submit the file created. Maximum marks are given for work submitted with the correct answers within the timescale specified on VLE (Moodle).

The MS Project Exercises are posted weekly on Moodle in the form of a Question and Notes documents and sometimes background Power Point presentations are provided. There will be 3 weekly exercises in total.

Provision is made to enter the answers electronically via a VLE (Moodle) quiz. These are made available from the day of the lecture for the next 6 days. If this timeslot is missed then it is possible to submit the exercise by consultation with the lecturers but the mark will be capped.

You will produce 1 set of individual objectives and a plan of your role within the group activities for the project. The group will also produce 1 set of objectives for the group for an intermediate group Viva (21st October, 2021), where you will defend and justify your approach to the project. A more detailed document of the above will be submitted in the final portfolio.

Your objectives must at least include the following:

  • Why you chose the role.
  • The objectives of the role.
  • How you expect to operate within the group.

You may work with others to discuss the assignment, but the work that you submit must be your own. Additionally remember to reference your work.

Task 3: Group Work.  As a member of a group you will create a portfolio addressing the issues associated with the Glyndwr Insurance Company (GIC) scenario within the guidelines provided.  

This portfolio is to be submitted via Turnitin on VLE (Moodle) (17th December, 2021).  Individually you will prepare a set of notes to support your contribution to this task for the VIVA to be held on 13th January, 2022.

This case study introduces a fictional Insurance Company called Glyndwr Insurance Company (GIC), located in North Wales.  The IT System used for the running of the insurance company is unreliable and utilises old technology and therefore needs to be upgraded.

Since the Operations Director has just appointed a new Finance Director she has decided to invite Management Consultants to assist the users and IT department in the insurance company to review the existing system with a view to replacing it. She has been instructed by the board that:

  • Every option should be explored
  • The system must be reliable
  • The system must meet the requirements of a modern 21st century Insurance Company
  • All areas of the operation should be catered for
  • The system must be capable of lasting for at least 5years
  • The capital budget with full justification for this project has to be sanctioned by the board before work commences
  • Only a minimum amount of money will be available in subsequent years to this end any savings in the present system should be identified
  • The new system should be useable within 12 months from the start date  

Briefing notes will be provided to members of the team which are intended to enable the student to role play and provide the necessary input to the project. Since each member of the team will have different roles, which may have conflicting elements, it is essential that only appropriate information is passed to the relevant members within the team.

  • Customer/Provision Manager
  • IT Manager
  • Consultant
  • Supplier
