( Damion Hill, 10/04/2017 ) Q:

Dear Sir/Madame, I'm a British expat currently living in Romania and I'm very keen to take this "Project Management BBS201 CLD" course, however I understand a test is required at the end of the course, but it's not clear to me how an adjudicator is appointed? It's stated that I can appoint an adjudicator, subject to prior ADL approval, but what criteria does this person need to be accepted as an adjudicator? Thank you.

( 10/04/2017 ) A:

Thank you for getting in touch.

The adjudicator should be a professional person, who is not a relative. We will send them the exam paper and then they give it to you on the day and at the time you are to begin the test.

Almost everything we do in society can be described as a project, from organising a party or constructing a building, to developing a new business or introducing a new social welfare project. Project management as a skill and field of study is essential for successful organisational management. As a formal management function, project management is found in government, industry, and almost all other organisations. Project Management may be called any of a number of other names such as: Program Management, Product Management, Construction Management, and so on.

Project management as a field of action can often be seen in self help schemes or outreach programs. Whatever the objectives, project management involves a number of phases and skills which are essential to a projects completion. To get a better understanding of this process, the term "project management" can be further broken into "project" and "management".

Extract from Course Lesson


THE PROJECT LIFE CYCLE
All projects go through a series of phases or stages. The following is a common sequence:

Phase One - PROJECT IDENTIFICATION AND INITIATING PROCESS
This phase involves identifying project ideas and needs. The individual or group responsible for a potential
project will refine an idea or concept into a project. Such a person draws up a project proposal which identifies
tasks to suit their objectives. If a project is considered to be feasible, in other words realistic or with attainable
objectives; then the next phase (project planning) follows.
The steps in this phase include:

  • Recognising that a project should be done
  • Identifying the outcomes of the project
  • Identifying the expectations of customers, management and
  • other interested parties (stakeholders)
  • Selecting the members of the project team.
  • Establishing the chain of command, and the communication
  • processes

Phase Two - PROJECT PLANNING
This phase involves preparing a plan or design of what the project entails, in particular "Planning the length or
"lifespan" for the expected project, the project costs, and preparation of possible task alternatives in the event of
unexpected changes. Consideration is given to the needs, alternatives and techniques that may have to be
applied, and once completed, the implementation phase follows.

  •  Refining the scope of the project
  •  Listing tasks and activities
  •  Sequencing activities in the most cost efficient and time effective way
  •  Getting the plan agreed to and approved by the relevant people.
  • Recognising that a project should be done
  • Identifying the outcomes of the project
  • Identifying the expectations of customers, management and other interested parties (stakeholders)
  • Selecting the members of the project team.
  • Establishing the chain of command, and the communication processes
  • Time is money and good project management saves money

Phase Three - PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION, EXECUTING AND CONTROLLING
This phase involves operationalising the plans, or the actual development of the project. The project is
implemented in a planned and controlled manner. This includes supervision and monitoring the actual progress
of a project within the scope of the plan. If successful, the project then requires closing, and the results are
compared with estimations determined earlier in the project cycle. Once this step is finalised, the final phase
follows.

  • Getting the necessary resources – money, people, equipment
  • and time to do the project.
  •  Leading the team
  • Communicating effectively with team members
  • Communicating with stakeholders.
  • Controlling the progress by monitoring
  • Corrective action and changes if necessary- eg rescheduling
  • Monitoring all resource utilisation
  • Problem solving

Phase Four - PROJECT COMPLETION AND EVALUATION
This phase involves determining whether the objectives set out, or the needs identified in the earlier part of the
cycle, have been successfully concluded.
Evaluating a projects success is measured by contrasting the original goal or set of objectives, with the final
outcome. This is the last and final phase of the projects cycle.

  •  Acknowledging achievements and results
  •  Writing a final report
  •  Reviewing the process with all team members
  •  Concluding the project – budget analysis and report etc
