summary of project
Summary of Project
  • No more that 350 words
  • The abstract can consist of a one-line summary of each of the other sections of the proposal.
project background
Project Background
  • Setting the scene for the project, what is the background to this research
    • How does it fit into the context of Knowledge management/engineering – provide a couple of definitions of KM that support this research
    • How does it fit into the organisation culture context.
    • 6-8 references in this section
    • Don’t talk about your specific research in this section
project description
Project Description
  • This is what my project is about, these is the organisation I will be doing it in and these are the tests I would like to do.
  • 2-3 references
project aim
Project Aim
  • This is the “thesis” of the project
  • Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs
  • e.g.
  • “This research will measure how Web 2.0 tools can improve collaboration and knowledge sharing”.
project objectives
Project Objectives
  • Between 3 and 6
  • Explain the milestones in reaching your project Aim.
  • Look at existing approaches and measure new approach.
evaluation criteria
Evaluation Criteria

  • What methods Quan/Qual
  • IEEE 829 Standard for Software Test Documentation.
  • ISO 9126 and ISO 14598 (which are standards on software evaluation)
  • Literature Review
  • Dissertation Document
  • Software (?)
  • Survey results on CD
  • .

timeframes and project plan
Timeframes and Project Plan
  • Risk mitigation, monitoring and management
risk mitigation monitoring and management
Risk Mitigation, Monitoring and Management
  • An effective strategy must consider three issues:
    • risk avoidance,
    • risk monitoring, and
    • risk management and contingency planning.
risk mitigation monitoring and management1
Risk Mitigation, Monitoring and Management
  • Example:
    • Assume that high staff turnover is noted as a project risk
risk mitigation
Risk Mitigation
  • A proactive approach to risk avoidance is the best strategy. Develop a plan for risk mitigation. For example: assume that high staff turnover is noted as a project risk r1, some of the possible steps to be taken are these:
    • Meet with current staff to determine causes for turnover
    • Assume turnover will occur and develop techniques to ensure continuity when people leave.
    • Define a backup staff member for every critical technologies.
    • Double everyone’s salary
risk monitoring
Risk Monitoring
  • As the project proceeds, the following factors can be monitored:
    • general attitude of team members based on project pressures,
    • the degree to which the team has jelled,
    • interpersonal relationship among team members,
    • availability of jobs within the company and outside it
  • As the project proceeds, risk monitoring activities commence.
  • In addition of these factors, the project manager should monitor the effectiveness of risk mitigation steps.
  • Project manager monitors factors that may provide an indication of whether the risk is becoming more or less likely
risk management
Risk Management
  • Contingency Planning
  • Assumes that mitigation efforts have failed and that the risk has become a reality
  • Continuing the example, the project is well underway and a number of people announce that they will be leaving
  • If the mitigation strategy has been followed, backup is available, information is documented and knowledge has been dispersed across the team
types of risks
  • Discuss project-based risks only
  • These are NOT risks;
    • I might get sick in the middle of my project
    • I might get a promotion and be too busy in my job
    • My girlfriend/boyfriend might run off with my best friend
    • My dog might run away
    • My supervisor might now give me a lot of feedback
types of risks1
  • These are risks;
    • My test audience might not help me
    • The tool I use might not fully match the requirements
    • I might not get the technology/software I need
    • I might not get a lot of responses from my survey
    • Problems might take longer to solve than I predicted
technical and non technical resources required
Technical and Non-Technical Resources Required
  • Access to people
  • PC / Laptop / PDA / etc.
  • Software Libraries
  • About 10-15
  • In Harvard format
