Ipt Syllabus Changes   Project Management Ipt Syllabus Changes Project Management Presentation Transcript

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