General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit offers you the opportunity to explore project scope management and introduces you to the processes required to ensure the successful completion of a project. You will learn scope verification and validation techniques. The unit also offers you the opportunity to learn about the tools and methods to keep projects under control and the methods to undertake changes within a project context. You will also learn about project configuration management, as it is a necessary mechanism to ensure that such changes are handled in a managed and controlled way in order to keep the project on track.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 40%
2. Practical Assessment 40%
3. Online Test 20%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Identify the impact of project scope management on the project schedule, cost, quality, and the desired project outcomes
  2. Develop a scope management plan that ensures the content of the scope statement and the successful completion
  3. Define the project scope and performance baselines to evaluate the success of a project through its life cycle
  4. Explain the methods, tools, and techniques to trace project requirements throughout the project's life cycle.

The learning outcomes of the proposed unit are all developed in line with the requirements of the two potential accreditation bodies, the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Australian Institute of Project Management, for this course. Moreover, the learning outcomes are addressing the graduate attributes noted in the Engineers Australia Policy on Accreditation.
