Case Scenario 3 & Assignment 1 Topic: Case Scenario 3 The university has recognised that students do not always know what is going on at the university outside of timetabled class sessions and in addition can find it difficult to contact representatives from clubs and societies. Hence, in order to help increase student engagement with extra-curricular activities, the university’s Student Union has asked you to project manage the development of a new Roehampton Recreation mobile phone app which will provide day by day details of university clubs and societies’ events, links to contact details and the freedom for students to publicise their own events. Grant funding from O2 (one of their directors is a former Roehampton Business School student) has given you a budget of £200k and the university, although supportive, wants it ready to be used by students at the start of the next academic year. Complete Assignement 1: Assignment 1 – to be submitted in week 6, 26th February (40% of module mark) A.

Note: a full, detailed breakdown of how the budget may be used is not required, although you are free to put such information in an appendix if you feel it will help explain your summary position. Refer to the lecture slides for a typical example of a PID B. Work breakdown Structure containing at least 20 items in the WBS. The WBS should be presented in the form of a suitably referenced diagram that must include dependencies, milestones and a hierarchy of tasks. You are free to deliver this as a Gantt chart (use MS Project to develop this) but it is not required. All diagrams should be embedded into your report as images. In addition include with this table a referenced paragraph explaining how a WBS can be used to help manage the tasks on a project and give a further paragraph briefly explaining the importance of critical path analysis;
