Ipt Syllabus Changes Project Management

  1. 1. IPT syllabus changes9.1 project Management<br />Effective for HSC 2009 (based on syllabus-annotated version)<br />
  2. 2. 6 Course Structure <br />Core Topics<br />some topic headings and subheadings have been renamed to remove ambiguities that existed in the original syllabus. <br />Project Work -&gt; Project Management<br />New subheading - Techniques for managing a project <br />Renamed subheading – Making decisions -&gt; Planning<br />
  3. 3. HSC Outcomes<br />H1.1 applies and explains an understanding of the nature and function of information technologies to a specific practical situation <br />H2.2 develops and explains solutions for an identified need which address all of the information processes <br />H3.1 evaluates and discusses the effect of information systems on the individual, society and the environment <br />H3.2 demonstrates and explains ethical practice in the use of information systems, technologies and processes <br />
  4. 4. HSC Outcomes (continued)<br />H4.1 proposes and justifies ways in which information systems will meet emerging needs <br />H5.2 assesses the ethical implications of selecting and using specific resources and tools, recommends and justifies the choices <br />H6.1 analyses situations, identifies needs, proposes and then develops solutions <br />H6.2 selects, justifies and applies methodical approaches to planning, designing or implementing solutions <br />H7.1 implements and explains effective management techniques <br />
  5. 5. 9.1 Project Management<br />This topic is intended to give students an understanding of the underlying theory of project management as well as an opportunity to plan, design and implement an information system that has a purpose. <br />The topic name has been changed to Project Management to avoid the ambiguity associated with the previous name, Project Work . <br />This topic covers all the theory behind managing a system development project. <br />
  6. 6. 9.1 Project Management techniques for managing a project <br />Students learn to: <br />understand the need to apply project management tools to develop a system using a team approach<br />appreciate the advantages of groups that function as a team, including: <br />increased productivity <br />enhanced job satisfaction <br />the development of a quality system <br />appreciate the need for complete documentation throughout all aspects of the system <br />
  7. 7. 9.1 Project Management techniques for managing a project <br />Students learn about:<br />the consequences for groups that fail to function as a team, including: <br />financial loss <br />employment <br />loss missed opportunities <br />
  8. 8. 9.1 Project Management techniques for managing a project <br />Students learn about: <br />project management tools, including: <br />Gantt charts <br />scheduling of tasks <br />journals and diaries <br />funding management plan <br />communication management plan <br />
  9. 9. 9.1 Project Management techniques for managing a project <br />Students learn to: <br />understand the communication skills required to manage a system development project, such as:<br />active listening <br />conflict resolution <br />negotiation skills <br />interview techniques <br />team building <br />
  10. 10. 9.1 Project Management understanding the problem <br />Students learn about: <br />approaches to identify problems with existing systems, including: <br />interviewing/surveying users of the information system<br />interviewing/surveying participants <br />analysing the existing system by determining: <br />how it works <br />what it does <br />who uses it<br />
  11. 11. Students learn about: <br />approaches to identify problems with existing systems, including: <br />interviewing/surveying users of the information system<br />interviewing/surveying participants <br />analysing the existing system by determining: <br />how it works <br />what it does <br />who uses it<br />9.1 Project Management understanding the problem <br />
  12. 12. Students learn about: <br />requirements reports <br />requirements prototype <br />a working model of an information system, built in order to understand the requirements of the system<br />used when the problem is not easily understood<br />repetitive process of prototype modification and participants feedback until the problem is understood<br />can be the basis for further system development<br />N.B. The term requirements prototype is introduced. <br />9.1 Project Management understanding the problem <br />
  13. 13. Students learn to: <br />apply appropriate techniques in understanding the problem <br />interpret a requirements report which includes: <br />the purpose of the systems <br />an analysis of an existing system <br />definition of extra requirements <br />create a requirements prototype from applications packages that provide: <br />screen generators <br />report generators <br />9.1 Project Management understanding the problem <br />
  14. 14. Students learn about: <br />a feasibility study of proposed solutions, including:<br />economic feasibility <br />technical feasibility <br />operational feasibility <br />scheduling <br />Technical<br />Operational<br />Economic<br />Scheduling<br />9.1 Project Management planning <br />
  15. 15. 9.1 Project Management<br />planning <br />Students learn about: <br />choosing the appropriate development approaches<br />traditional <br />outsourcing <br />prototyping <br />customisation <br />participant development <br />agile methods <br />N.B. New system development methods have been added.<br />
  16. 16. Students learn about: <br />the requirements report that: <br />details the time frame <br />details the subprojects and the time frame for them<br />identifies participants <br />identifies relevant information technology <br />identifies data/information <br />identifies the needs of users <br />9.1 Project Management planning <br />
  17. 17. Students learn to: <br />Compare system development approaches :<br />Traditional<br />Iterative<br />Agilemethods<br />9.1 Project Management planning <br />
  18. 18. Students learn about: <br />clarifying with users the benefits of the new information system <br />designing the information system for ease of maintenance <br />clarifying each of the relevant information processes within the system <br />detailing the role of the participants, the data and the information technology used in the system <br />refining existing prototypes <br />9.1 Project Management designing<br />
  19. 19. Students learn about: <br />tools used in designing, including: <br />context diagrams <br />data flow diagrams <br />decision trees <br />decision tables <br />data dictionaries <br />storyboards <br />N.B. System flow charts has been removed and storyboards added.<br />9.1 Project Management designing<br />
  20. 20. Students learn about: <br />acquiring information technology and making it operational <br />hardware <br />software, customised or developed <br />the need for an operation manual detailing procedures participants follow when using the new system <br />9.1 Project Management implementing <br />
