The purpose of this individual assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate overall project performance
and compliance with quality standards.
Assessment Instructions
Presume that you have been employed as the project management consultant for the project you have chosen
to analyse in the first assessment, and that project supervisors have asked you to explore various project
management software to determine the best suitable option.
Based on this task, you have been given instructions to identify three different software solutions that are
explicitly designed for project management and review each one by referring to the specifications and
functionalities that are publicly available for review through their various sales communications.
After your review, the project supervisors have asked you to record a 10-minute video, in which you are to
explain to the project supervisors how each software program could assist the project manager and project
team of the chosen project in the first assessment with each of the IPECC stages by:
• Comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses of each software choice in relation to the project
you chose in the first assessment.
• Identifying the software, you would recommend for use in the project you have chosen in the first
assessment by providing the rationale for your recommendation.
The findings presented in this video must be accompanied by a set of PowerPoint slides and be based on a
minimum of 8 sources of information such as websites, government publications, industry reports, census
data, journal articles, and newspaper articles. These sources must be presented in the video in the form of intext citations and a reference list adhering with Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. Wikipedia and other
‘popular’ sites are not to be used.
