PMLS ASSIGNMENT : Create a business case for establishing a British Target Store
You have recently been appointed by a large investor in the UK who is seeking to develop Target stores in the UK but they have concerns over the problems Target US had with their project in Canada (see Appendix 1). Your assignment is to write a report on the prospective Target UK as a project – considering what is likely to go well and what not so well.
Your report should therefore focus on the project management aspects including the key risks e.g. loss of money and overrunning its schedule and not meeting the performance requirements expected from a project of this type.
Part A (20%) This involves the preparation of a PowerPoint presentation of your business case and project plan as detailed in the assignment brief. You are required to prepare the slides along with associated written presentation notes for submission with Part B. Part A should be included in the beginning of Part B, in a Word/PDF document. Weighting for task A: 20%.
Part B (80%) Produce a detailed business case and project plan, and any recommendations to the Project Board that you consider appropriate.
