Assignment Task:
This assignment involves the preparation of a presentation (which outlines the project proposal and rationale) followed by a Client Report which outlines the project plan, project scope and risk and evaluating the project success.
This assignment has been designed to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your achievement of the following module learning outcomes:
LO 1 Present and agree to a project proposal with the client.
LO 2 Use appropriate tools to collect, select and use information from a range of sources
LO 3 Evaluate the data relevant to the proposal.
LO4 Communicate the outcomes and recommendations.
Task Requirement
OVERVIEW:
Astra Plc is a small-sized company specialising in vitamin and mineral-based food supplements. The company is looking to diversify its portfolio by launching a new health and fitness app in the next three months. You have been hired by Astra Plc to assess the suitability of the new App.
DESCRIPTION OF THE TASK – WHAT YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO DO?
Prepare an annotated PowerPoint presentation (8-10 slides maximum) for Astra Plc, which outlines the project proposal and rationale of the new health and fitness app (carry out relevant research e.g., background
information, what does the app do, why should it be built, potential customers, the likelihood of success) (LO1) [500 words]
1. The presentation slides should be attached to the report as an appendix. Include speaker notes at the bottom of each slide to explain the key points on the slide (Max 500 words). However, you are not required to do a live presentation. Keep the slides succinct, and you can use bullet points where necessary. The slides should be embedded in the assignment, followed by the report.
2. Prepare a client report that covers the following: (LO2, LO3 & LO4) [1,000 words]
a. The Project Plan (discuss a plan for your app using a GANTT chat) (150 words)
b. Project Scope (discuss the app design and launch cost, social media integration; in-app purchase; app customisation; testing of the app; launch of the app) (300 words)
c. Project Risk (what potential risks could impact the launch of the app, e.g., cost overruns, delays in app design, design and compatibility issues; competition from other apps) (300 words)
d. Project Success (how will you measure the app’s success?) (250 words)
The report should be written in a formal business report format, consisting of a title page, a table of contents, the main body of the work using appropriate headings covering the above four points, and a reference list.
Referencing and Research Requirements
You must reference all information used in the presentation and the report, using the Harvard Referencing Guide. You are required to include a reference list at the end of the report arranged in alphabetical order irrespective of the sources.
You can access guidance to Harvard referencing here:
