The context
You are currently closing a project you have worked on. As part of the project
closure it is necessary to reflect on (critically analyse) the project’s approach to
project delivery.
If you do not have a workplace project that you can draw upon, find a case study
in the literature that you can critique. The findings of your reflections are to be
presented in a report format that includes the findings of your critical analysis
and subsequent recommendations. You are required to examine the project
delivery literature* to inform your critical analysis. It is suggested that you use
figures and tables where relevant to support the presentation of the findings of
your analysis.
The total length of your report is to be approx. 3,500 to 4,000 words.
Please follow the formatting guidelines for reports as outlined in the
Communication Skills Handbook (Summers & Smith 2014).
The structure of your report is as follows:
Cover sheet (course details, author details, date, etc.)
Executive summary [200 to 300 words as a guide, but not counted in word count]
To indicate the nature of the report, background details, research findings
and recommendations where appropriate, and to function as a stand-alone
Table of Contents / List of Figures / List of Tables
Refer Communication Skills Handbook for details of style.
Introduction [150 – 200 words]
Provide an explanation of the reason for preparing the document and a brief
summary of the contents.
2. Organisational Context [150 – 200 words]
Provide details of the project to understand the context of the analysis.
3. Definition of project requirements and deliverables [750 – 800 words]
Critically reflect on the process and tools adopted by the project team to
define the project requirements and the project deliverables. Areas of
reflection may include: Who was involved in defining requirements? What
tools were used to ensure that all requirements were captured and
documented? Were processes employed to validate or approve the

requirements? Were whole-of-life or through-life support requirements
4. Tendering methodologies [750 – 800 words]
Critically reflect on the process and tools adopted by the project team to
acquire goods and/or services. Areas of reflection may include: Was leasing,
renting or purchasing (or variants of these were) used? How was the market
(or potential providers of goods and services) approached? How were offers
from the market evaluated? Were these methods and tools appropriate for
the project and its environment?
5. Contract formation, administration, negotiation and dispute resolution [750 –
800 words]
Critically reflect on all aspects of contact formation and management for the
project. Areas of reflection may include: Did contract formation and
administration align with best practice? Were contracts sufficiently detailed
to capture delivery expectations? What tools or processes were involved in
the initial contract negotiation? How were any disputes resolved?
6. Contract closeout and project handover [750 – 800 words]
Critically reflect on the closeout of any contracts and on the project handover.
Areas of reflection may include: how was completion of the contract verified?
How was transfer of any knowledge or information from contractors to the
organisation facilitated? Was the project handover phased or at a cut-over
date; was this suitable for the project and its environment? What
documentation or activities were undertaken to ensure that the organisation
was ready to accept and manage the project deliverables?
7. Findings and recommendations [300 – 400 words]
Describe the findings of your critical analysis in the form of lessons learned
with recommendations for future projects and/or changes to the
organisation’s project delivery activities.
