Learning Outcomes assessed 1 & 2.


Projects present challenges to the Project Manager, not just in their planning and operation, but also in terms of effective leadership, management of all interested parties. There are key areas which need to be considered when evaluating the success of a project. These can involve various perspectives depending on experience, knowledge, cultural values, and self-interest. Managing to initiate a project and maintain progress and required quality to completion can be difficult for the Project Manager.

For this assessment you are to choose a past project where it is no more than 6 years since project closure. You are to write a critical review of the literature in which you should consider the following areas.

  • Key issues in managing people in projects including leadership and teamwork, and how leadership can be used to improve team performance.
  • The factors that can impact on the quality of a project or engineering activity
  • The impact of leadership style and team performance on quality issues in your chosen project

Using concepts introduced in the module, consider how the Project Manager might have attempted to address both human and quality issues and evaluate the impact on the outcomes of the project.
