You are required to prepare a report in which you are to analyse the success and failure factors of a major Australian project by considering its ethical compromises.
In this individual assessment, students will be given an opportunity to analyse the organisational factors that promote effective project management. The success and failure factors, along with ethical considerations for each of the 5 IPECC phases, will need to be considered.
Please choose one of the following projects as the basis for your research (For your chosen project you are to focus on the construction and implementation of the project, following the IPECC phases, and not its current operations beyond what is required in closure).
Design and Implementation of My Health Record
Establishing the MacArthur Wind Farm
Construction of the Adelaide Desalination Plant
Wille Creek Mine Regeneration Project
Construction of Optus Stadium
Please note that the above links are provided to give only an initial outline of what the project delivered, and substantial additional research will be required to complete your assessment successfully.
Once you have conducted thorough research about your chosen project, you are then required to prepare a report in which you are to:
- Analyse in detail both the steps critical for your chosen project’s success and the critical pitfalls that could have lead to its failure. Relate the specific success and fail factors to your nominated project and do not just describe a generic theory or simple definitions.
- For each of 5 IPECC stages, you are to analyse the success and failure factors for each of those stages. You are required to analyse at leastone success criteria and at least one failure criteria for each stage. If you are unable to identify success or fail criteria for a particular stage, you are required to postulate at least one criteria; but it must be based on sound theory and your knowledge of the case study.
- Integrate the ethical considerations into each of these steps and show how ethical considerations may impact the success or failure of the chosen project.
