Assignment of the Week – Project Management

Project Management is the study of using established procedures, policies and principles to manage a project from its inception to its completion. Project management study will equip you with the knowledge to plan, organize and implement a project and oversee its completion. To further define the process involved in project management, let’s categorize them into 5 groups.

  • Initiation
  • Planning
  • Execution
  • Monitoring and Control
  • Closing

Project Management’s real world application is huge. It is useful in industries such as aerospace, construction, technology and healthcare and many more. According to an estimate prepared by the project Management Institute (PMI), 1/5th of the world’s gross domestic product is spent on projects and there is a huge global demand for skilled project managers. This is why most universities give special focus on Project Management Assignments. Universities design their assignment to test whether the student can do the following:

  • Critically review the concepts of project management and the role played by project managers in global and local contexts
  • Integration of ‘Human factors’ knowledge in management of a project
  • Critically review and present arguments on key topics of project management
  • Justify and promote recommendations as a means to facilitate efficient decision making
  • Design and manage projects using project scheduling tools.

In addition to the above, universities also expect students to demonstrate advanced knowledge in the principles of project management through research which is responsible, innovative and engaging, therefore, applying it in an array of academic and professional context.

By now, you must have already figured out that project management is a complex subject that needs to be studied comprehensively in order to write PM Assignments. The assignments designed for project management students, require theoretical and practical knowledge of different terminologies such as, aligning projects with strategies, stakeholder management, work breakdown structure, communication plan, risk analysis, critical path and critical chain, project scope management, project network and scheduling, costing, procurement and so on. Students also need to be well versed with different project management methodologies like Agile, Critical Path Method (CPM), Critical Chain project Management (CCPM), PRINCE2 and Waterfall.

Often, students are unable to write a project management assignment following all that is in the subject.
