For this assignment, you are required to create project scheduling documents and associated reports, and manage your work on Blackboard in your own group area. Full details can be found on Blackboard in the Assignments section. Marks will be awarded for the quality of the preparatory work recorded on Blackboard. Since this is timestamped, the dates and times recorded on Blackboard will be used to assess when and by whom each piece of work was created. If the work is not recorded on Blackboard, the assumption is that it does not exist. This is in line with normal project management practice where documenting your planning, task management and work tracking is essential to accurate project scheduling and control. Similarly, each group must be selfmanaging. Groups should create and all sign a group contract before beginning any work on the assignment. The group contract should be uploaded to your group Blackboard site, and should include details about the expected standards of work, and what the consequences are for not adhering to these standards. This should also include expected levels of contact between group members each week, and what happens if these agreed levels of contact are not adhered to. Your instructor/lecturer will generally not get involved in any group disputes. As project managers, you are expected to manage conflict and difficulties in line with your group agreement.
