Project management course

FIND A SOLUTION AT Academic Writers Bay

This is a Project management course’s consolidated portfolio. There are 10 weekly portfolios student must have done before this consolidated portfolio and course required to write learning outcomes(LO1 , LO2, LO3 …) with supportive part as i. summary ii. evidence. Within 9 pages (around 2200 words) at least 3 (more) LO must included in this consolidated portfolio. I will submit this subject’s weekly portfolios and it is highly recommend to do the person who will assigned to this(this consolidated portfolio) , also should do weekly portfolios all of them. Because these are just same contexts and connected to each other closely.
PPMP20012 Program and Portfolio Management
Information Systems
Term 1 – 2018
General Information
Overview
The unit introduces systems thinking, systems engineering and systems management principles, concepts, tools and
techniques for project, program and portfolio managers (PPPM). Systems thinking offers a powerful perspective to help
design clever enduring solutions to meet organisational strategic goals. Through their study of the PPPM process
students will learn how to effectively apply systems engineering and systems management to organise complex projects
and identify the implementation of systems to create outputs, manage information flow and support effective knowledge
management and decision making. Students study how these PPPM application systems may be implemented as a mix
of manual processes or electronically (through applications such as Oracle Primavera, SAP ERP, Microsoft Project, or IBM
Maximo). Contemporary developments using international standards and knowledge bases as well as modelling and
simulation techniques are studied to allow ‘what if’ questioning to occur in the project, program and portfolio
environment. If you have successfully completed unit PPMP20003 you cannot take this unit.

Assessment Tasks
1 Consolidated Portfolio
Assessment Type
Portfolio
Task Description
Assignment Overview
In this unit you are required to complete a weekly portfolio. A portfolio provides evidence of previous and current
experience and presents a dynamic record of your growth and professional learning over the duration of this unit. Your
portfolio will provide an account of your learning based on your practice and your critical reflection.
Task
Your task is to write a weekly portfolio reflecting upon your learnings from the prior week. In your portfolio you will
identify: the learning outcomes and module/topic of the unit, a description of your experience, including reading samples
or records, your learning from your experiences, and any supporting documentation of prior or current learning.
Purpose
The primary purpose of this assessment item is to help you to develop skills for undertaking research and translating, via
your technical and creative skills, underpinning concepts about project and portfolio management information systems.
The secondary purpose of this assignment is to give you the opportunity to enhance your analysis, critical thinking and
written communication skills. Developing a portfolio, as a result, makes your learning more explicit as you translate your
workplace and personal experiences into documented evidence. You can then learn to critically examine the nature of
your learning on this unit in relation to specific experiences in your project management practice and demonstrate that
you have learned from those experiences and how you have achieved or maintained your professional competence as a
result.
The assignment will also give you the opportunity to enhance your analysis and written communication skills;
particularly in the areas of rigorous structured assignment writing.
Structure
You will be provided on the Moodle web site with a portfolio template. You should use this template and upload a weekly
portfolio to the Moodle web site. At the end of this unit you will consolidate your portfolio into a single document and
upload an overall consolidated portfolio submission. Your portfolio should contain a coherent, but necessarily restricted
review of the academic literature related to the project management topics for each week. You should also include a
weekly reference list formatted in the prescribed style. You are also encouraged to include a bibliography. This
assessment item involves researching the topics to enhance your understanding of each concept through an utilisation
of academic literature and secondary sources. Whilst you must use the recommended textbooks and web links, you
should also refer to other sources on the Moodle web site and additional relevant peer reviewed academic journal
articles of your choosing.
Weekly Portfolio
Your weekly portfolio can be as long or as short as you want it to be. It is your portfolio and shows your development of
understanding during the unit. Naturally, this will make the portfolio different for everyone. Each student’s background,
education, current and past work experiences is what makes it different.
Each student’s personal researches will be different. What you need to do is to give yourself enough time to reflect and
show how you have thought and come to grips with the ideas that address the learning outcomes of the unit. The
amount of time you should be allocating to the unit is 12 hours per week. So there should be a fair bit of time for you to
make the reflections and reach a depth of insight that will make the portfolio meaningful.
With each weeks portfolio that you submit you do not include the writing that you made for a prior week. Instead you
use the same portfolio template using only the section for the week you are writing about. In other words each week’s
portfolio is a reflection upon that week. You should however, revisit the whole of the unit learning outcomes each week.
The portfolio for any previous week is a reflection of your insights and thoughts for that week. Once you upload the
portfolio then leave it for that week. Over the duration of the unit you will find that there is a development and change of
your ideas as you study the material. You will then have opportunity at the end of the unit to consolidate everything and
show how you have gained the insights that the unit is seeking to provide. At the end of the unit you should review your
weekly portfolios and consolidate them into a single submission. You should make a personal reflection in this
submission. This is the assessment that gets marked.
It is to your benefit to have the personal discipline to make sure that you do not get behind. If you are allocating 12
hours per week for the unit then there is plenty of time for the portfolio. If you find that one week you slip then ok, but
the unit is fundamentally planned so that you need to allocate 12 hours each week.
The unit is straight forward, but there are lots of web sites to visit and material to download. The text books are only part
of the story and you won’t be able to do the unit with just the text books. Unfortunately, much of the material is written
from a North American perspective. You will need to consider other industry sectors and also to be able to translate the
learning outcomes into an Australian or other cultural perspective. Therefore, you will need to download other files and
visit web sites to be able to gather the material you need in your portfolio.
There are no bonus points for getting the portfolio perfect from the first week! Understanding and familiarity will only
develop over time. As you do the portfolios’ each week and keep revisiting the learning outcomes and adding the unit
material then you will gain insights required. Unless you do that on a weekly basis you won’t have the appropriate
perspective to make the journey and reach the destination by the end of the unit.
Consolidated Portfolio
You will be provided with a template for the consolidated portfolio due at the end of the unit. Since you’ll have made
your own journey studying during the unit then the material that you will want to include in this portfolio will be unique
for you. Your final portfolio will explain how you have developed your understanding of the learning outcomes and the
topics with each week’s study.
You final portfolio MUST be made as a single submission. i.e. merge all your weekly submissions into one file and
submit a single big file
You must NOT use an index and numbering system to identify material from prior week’s leaving each portfolio on the
unit web site.
The final portfolio is the important one! It’s important that you make it clear to the marker what your consolidated
portfolio refers to otherwise you may not get the marks you expect.
An analogy for the final portfolio is that you can imagine that you are going before an examination board at the end of
the unit and presenting to them a complete portfolio of your journey through the unit. You will hand each board member
a package that they should then be able to read and from it appreciate everything that you have done and learned
during your work life and the unit.
Referencing
Ensuring you have accurate references is important and will allow the marker to easily identify where your portfolio
maps to the unit or other peer reviewed material. Also you need to show how you have made critical reflection on the
material and added your own unique insights.
Referencing should be made according to CQU’s APA referencing guide. To locate the guide then Google “CQU APA
referencing” and download the PDF file for the current year.
It is as a consequence of your references and academic proficiency with critical analysis that you will be able to gain
MAXIMUM MARKS.
Feedback on each weekly portfolio will be provided in the week following submission.
