The main objective of this assignment is to reinforce the importance of project definition and needs identification in
the initial phase of the project life cycle.
Success of a project is affected by the way a project’s objective(s) is defined, planned and managed.
Unfortunately, successful project managers do fail; the key difference in strategic project management is that they
learn from their mistakes. Project managers also learn from their success and are constantly searching for new
strategies to further improve. In highly successful projects you are likely to find an excellent and valuable project
team, a motivated project manager and a very efficient project structure. This assignment is designed to lead you
through a systematic evaluation of a project. Your role is to critically analyse one real project* – not summarise a
project. I want to see that you have thought about the project and offered critical comments and insights based on
your understanding of project management.
*The project: Search for a real project: you can choose a project that was completed successfully or one that was
not completed successfully. Examples from previous project analysed are: Hong Kong Project Clean Air and Hong
You are encouraged to search the Web for these projects and to collect any type of information about the
situation, making sure to cover differing viewpoints. This could include newspapers, project management
magazine and journals. As this project is a real case you can expand the information presented in the references
Write a report that critically analyses how the project was planned and performed. The report should include:
1. Brief introduction to the project.
● Please give an overview of your project. This should explain what the project was and the context in which
the project occurred.
● Clear identification of the objective(s) and scope of the project.
2. A project stakeholder analysis.
3. A brief description of how the project was managed (eg. strategy, key events, tools used etc).
● Describe the implementation phase of the project. In particular, explain whether the project ran to plan – in
which case explain the benefits of careful planning to the project manager. Alternatively, if the project
deviated from plan, why did this occur and what was the impact of these deviations for the project?
4. A critical analysis of the project outcome (i.e. the critical factors that made this project a success or a failure).
● Conclude reflecting on the project, what did you learn? What good practices will you, as a manager, take
from this to future projects, and what activities would you not do in the future and why?
The report should not exceed 1500 words and should be formatted using 1.5 line spacing and a font size of 12pt.
The word limit does not include the appendix, or the executive summary.
