Project plan

Submit a project plan. The project plan is a Word document that is a combination of a written explanation of the project plan and the explanation of the control plan. The WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) and timeline are represented with screenshots of the Gantt chart, resource chart, and cost table. Ensure each chart and graph is properly noted and has text explanation.Note that the course project intent is to introduce students to an entire systems analyst process. Each milestone is fairly significant in size if performing an actual project. For the intended learning and exposure to the course project topics, please know that assumptions will have to be made and that any such assumptions should be documented.For additional help, attached is a copy of the original business proposal.

Remember that for this project, you will need to create a dashboard that gives the user a snapshot of how well
the organization is doing. Dashboards allow users to view easily view several charts or other visual indicators
on one page or screen. Dashboard examples are included at the end of this document. You will also want to
view the video tutorial on dashboards. See details of the dashboard project here.
For this assignment, you are to create a plan for your dashboard. The purpose of the plan is to ensure you are
on track with a good idea of what you want to do with the data. You do not need to create any charts at this
point, only describe in words the following points:
What dataset are you going to use (you must select one of the datasets provided to you in Module 14 in the
project description)
What questions do you want the dashboard to answer?
What charts/visualizations will fit the data and help answer your questions?
A good start to a dashboard plan is, “I will focus on the revenues and expenses of this company and how they
track over time and among the regions. There are three questions I would like this dashboard to address. The
first is, how do the differences between revenues and expenses compare over time? To answer this question, I
will use a line chart to graph the data…”
strengths of this plan?
What could be improved?

1.2 Dimensions of competence assessment
For this exercise, you are read the given assessment items/tasks that have been set out for a course participant and identify which Dimension of Competence is relevant to that task as well as identify the associated Employability skill (or skills).

Assessment task 1
Mary is a 16-year-old student who is participating in a school traineeship program. She is doing a certificate II in Business Administration and is at the front desk of small law firm in Brisbane.
Mary has been trained to file invoices according to the reference number and the account names in file and alphabetical order. These are then cross referenced with the computer which has all the file names listed alongside of the reference numbers and other relevant details.
Mary’s supervisor in the office, in conjunction with Mary’s assessor, has given her invoices
which at times are incomplete, however, there is enough information for Mary to do her job by cross referencing.

Provide examples of how you might implement this in either your own learning environment or the environment of Stack It Storage with a maximum of 500 words written below. This research must be in your own words, showing references and examples of how it could be implemented and why.
This is not to be written as a higher educational paper, we need to see research and understanding.

1.6 Learning Styles that suit
1) What style of training would be best enjoyed by an activist? What would you need to include?

2) What style of training would best be enjoyed by a theorist? What would you need to consider?

3) In a paragraph, explain why it is important for a training designer to understand different learning styles and their application into the delivery of a nationally recognised training.

1.7 Stakeholder involvement
Why is it important that key stakeholders are involved in preliminary decision-making processes of the project plan (such as the signing off of the broad based conceptual headings)?

1.8 Project considerations
For the conceptual training, you are building for Stack It Storage, under the given headings below, name two considerations for each that should be taken into account when building the project plan.
Legislative
considerations

Ethical
considerations

Financial
considerations

Educational
considerations

Organisational
considerations

1.9 Project plan
As part of your assessment you are required to develop resources to aid in the development of the planning process. Assessment 3.3 serves three purposes:
• It allows you to research and physically build tools for a given purpose.
• It provides a resource to assist in creating a Project Plan to present to the CEO Ross Gig deriving from your training needs analysis.
• Allows for the logical and sequential development of training to be delivered for the purpose of continual growth for the organisation.
Assuming that the broad-based headings have been approved by the key stakeholders, begin to build on these headings by developing a project plan which covers the who, what, why, when, where and (to a lesser degree) how of the project plan as well as anticipated outcomes and Return on Investment (ROI).
(When building the plan, consider the previous question and build it with the understanding that you will be actually presenting this information to the CEO)
Step 1
Investigate templates or structures that show sequenced and logical methods of creating a project plan (research training and assessment strategy docs). You may have used a similar document before and you are very welcome to use it for this purpose and adapt it. Otherwise, use the internet to investigate various templates you can use to contextualise for your project plan development.
Step 2
Using investigated and contextualised templates in conjunction with your broad-based headings, construct a training project plan that you can present to the CEO for the purpose of implementing.
Remember – You are to contextualise a training plan according to the needs of the organisation (Stack it Storage). If you have done this activity in your work place, you can submit a training and assessment plan from previously conducted work INSTEAD of creating a plan for Stack it Storage. In total, we need two different plans for two different training topics.
For ease of assessment ensure that you title your document “Assessment 2.3 Project Plan” and email it to your assessor: tddonlin[email protected]ining.com.au.
Consider the following;
• How will you ensure ‘context / bit by bit / practice’?
• How will you incentivise / encourage / congratulate?
• Who needs task skills?
• Who needs job role / environment skills?
• Which employability skills need improvement?
• Where could self-directed learning fit in?
• What learning style might be Ross’ preference?
• What sort of learning would irritate Glenda?
• What’s the best way to help Terry?
• Review processes for continuous improvements
• Chosen training justification
In the space below, justify the use of the unit ‘TLID1001A Shift materials safely using manual handling methods’. Consider the training objectives, what the organisation need and the purpose of this unit being chosen.

Next, expand upon the training for ‘Stack it Storage’ by choosing another appropriate unit (from training.gov.au) that will satisfy other training needs the organisation has. Justify your chosen training in the space provided. When choosing this second unit, consider the learning pathways these two units could create and identify the learning pathway in the following box as indicated.

This document is for ‘your eyes only’ – not for Stack it storage. It is to be used as a tool to help prepare for your meeting with Ross Gig.

1.11 Consolidation: Imagine your workplace requires training of a particular kind; it is your job to identify the learning objectives, choose a current unit of competence from training.gov.au and complete the following details on the learning and assessment plan below:
For this activity, you are to create a project plan (similar or the same as the previous project plan you used for Stack it Storage) and complete it with details of a training scenario based on your workplace (or a simulated workplace if you are not able to utilise a current workplace).

• When and where is the proposed training going to occur?
• Who is the target group? Do they have any particular learning needs to be considered for the training?
• What is the purpose or objectives of the training?
• What unit of competence will accommodate the training needs of the organisation and what learning pathways are there?
• Who are your stakeholders? When will you consult with them to confirm training strategy is applicable and how will this be done?
• Describe the overall learning and assessment strategy taking into consideration the cohort of students and their learning needs.
• Develop an overview of the content to be delivered in sequential order, including timelines for delivery.
• Describe any relevant operational and licensing requirements for the training.
• List recommendations for improvements and show what rectifications need to be made as a result of making continuous improvements (this may be done on a separate template if needed).
