Imagine you are the owner of a café in Melbourne’s CBD with two other partners. Due to the extremely high rent, you
are no longer able to afford to run the business, so you consult with an expert who will advise you on how to run the
business successfully. The expert suggested that you move to a suburb where the rent is affordable. You and your
partners like the idea and decide to move to a new location, but before moving you must prepare a report with the help
of your partners considering the points listed below.
1. Briefly introduce your project by defining the parameters/scope of the project, including:
– Project name;
– Project period;
– Project objectives;
– Project stakeholders;
– Project budget; and
– Resource requirements and allocation.
2. Break down your project objectives by creating milestones and drawing a Gantt chart to represent the following:
– Work breakdown;
– Budget and allocation of resources;
– Risk management; and
– Recordkeeping and reporting.
3. Identify one (1) Work Health and Safety (WHS) related risk and create a risk management matrix to record your
strategies including responsibilities to manage these risks.
4. Develop a project budget and discuss it with your partners for approval.
5. Discuss with your partners whether they are clear about their responsibilities and project requirements and
consult with them regarding the next step in the planning process.
6. Identify the limitations related to reporting requirements
7. Complete the project documentations template below and get signed-off from your partners to conclude the
project and gain approval.
