Your task
Individually, you are required to complete a comprehensive risk analysis and stakeholder management
plan based on your work in the first and second assessments. Therefore, this assessment is a
culmination piece.


Assessment Description

The purpose of this assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate and determine project viability,
including the analysis required in the selection process. This will also form a part of students’ ability to
create project portfolios that meet an organisations strategic goals and requirements and analyse
project lifecycles and the processes involved in project development. Students will also demonstrate the
criteria required to evaluate the success of projects based on an organisation’s goals, strategy and
standards and analyse the project lifecycle and the process involved in project development.

Assessment Instructions
Presume that you are advancing the Lot Fourteen project and that you have now been asked to prepare
a detailed risk analysis and stakeholder management plan before commencing the project.


Complete a comprehensive risk assessment of your project proposal and statement of work (SOW),
linked directly to the case study. In addition, complete a stakeholder management plan, in which you
will propose ways to manage the relationships between the stakeholder groups identified in the case
study and the proposals you have put forward in the first and second assessments. Your analysis needs
to be directly linked to the case study and related to all the elements you addressed in the Project
Strategy Framework and Statement of Work (SOW).


Your risk analysis should be approximately 800 words. In it, you must include the concepts studied in
weeks 4 and 5, accompanied by at least one or more of the risk assessment techniques used, such as
risk assessment grid or project risk picture. You must identify potential risks in addition to your research
on the project and its site by stating a clear outline of how these will be managed.


Your stakeholder management p should be approximately 1200 words. In it, you must follow an
appropriate, professional presentation style addressing the South Australian Government (who have
commissioned the project) and include the identification of the various stakeholders, their interest and
influence over the project, and a clear outline of the engagement strategy for each stakeholder group.

Please don’t forget to outline the appropriate objectives and measures for the various stakeholders,
using the relevant frameworks, concepts and diagrammatic tables, as necessary, to explain your
reasoning clearly and concisely.


In addition to the case study, you are required to use at least 15 sources of information and use the
Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. These may include government publications, industry reports, and
journal articles. These sources must be presented in the form of intext citations and a reference list at
the end of your submission. Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ sites are not to be used.
