In this assignment, it is assumed that the sponsor/tutor has selected your team’s project to be funded. Therefore, you should provide a detailed and updated project management plan based on the agreement below to document how the budget will be invested and what processes will be followed to ensure a successful delivery of projects’ requirements. This is an example of real-life practical learning since now your project is assumed to be funded and provided with the money resource.
“With the agreement that your sponsor has reduced the project budget by 50%, has requested to be a project manager of this project and bring his own technology designer (e.g. website, platform, technology or mobile application designer) and to outsource half of your activities/resources to their own company called TechComm2021, you should consider the following details and develop an updated and appropriate planning to meet the requirements.”
1.Explain how the budget reduction, management change and outsourcing will impact your project’s time, cost, scope, and quality. For this reason, please provide a table/diagram to present the effect of the changes in triple constraints including quality. In addition, explain if these changes will affect the initial MOV. Discuss the project change management plan that you will consider managing this change (e.g. how you will consider changing your project manager and technology designer and outsourcing 50% of your work to company TechComm2021, what the consequences of this change will be and what leadership style will be suitable for your case and why?)
2.Identify three potential conflicts among the team and three major and specific ethical issues that might arise and how you are planning to manage them. The team should also provide an updated Gantt Chart considering the changes made to triple constraints including the quality.
3.Provide project communication plan to manage all the communication channels (such as communication matrix) including sponsor and all internal and external stakeholders. In your documentation, represent what procurement approach for each resource will be taken and why.
4.Provide detailed minutes of all your group meetings in the appendices; including meeting date/times, decision made, communication channels, changes required, responsibility for each group member name and ID and progress on each task.
