EPM5600 Principles of Project Management 

SEMESTER 1 Tri 2019 



The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is a national body that represents the interests  of Project Management as a profession across all sectors and disciplines. Its focus is on maintaining  the professional reputation of Project Management as a philosophy, provides useful information to its  members, runs various training courses and upholds industry recognised accreditation standards. 

In October 2019, AIPM plans to hold their first event as part of the National Conference to promote  Information Technology (IT) professionals and does not have the in-house capacity or expertise to  coordinate such an event. As the governing body for Project Management, AIPM acknowledges that  this event needs to be meticulously planned and delivered to the highest standard possible. 


Assume that your group has been appointed to provide Project Management services to Australian  Institute of Project Management (AIPM) in relation to the Stage 1 - Due Diligence study for its first event. AIPM requests this due diligence report to be completed and submitted for review and approval  by Monday Week 6 on or before 9.00 AM. 

If the AIPM board agrees with and accepts the strategy, costs, timing and risk profile set out in the due  diligence report. Your group will be commissioned for Stage 2 – Project Delivery. This will take place in  Stage 2 and will include a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, setting the event delivery  framework and preparing a Project Management Plan (PMP). A detailed brief will be released for  Stage 2 at a later date. 

This brief for Stage 1 – Due Diligence exercise provides the Project Management group with a more detailed understanding of AIPM’s business operations and project objectives for the proposed National Conference for IT Professionals. 



AIPM expects to receive a concise due diligence report which as a minimum covers the following  areas: 

 Marketing strategies to be adopted leading up to the event. 

 Advice on the optimum venue, format, duration, number of speakers and broad mud-map of  the sessions. 

∙ Timing associated with the planning, delivery and post implementation review of the event. ∙ Risks to be considered and the provision of a detailed risk matrix and how to manage.

 Advice on potential sponsorship arrangements and cost structuring for the event in terms of  advertising packages, ticket pricing and offers for international delegates. 

Costs associated with running the event and the provision of a cash-flow which links to the  project programme. Payment terms with various suppliers should be considered. ∙ A summary methodology describing how your group will manage the detailed planning and  delivery of the event if the board decides to proceed. This will be further developed and will  form the basis of the PMP in the Stage 2 – Project Delivery exercise. 

This due diligence exercise and report should be focused on AIPM’s corporate objectives and project  requirements in terms of key satisfaction criteria. However, in order to properly scope the works and  produce an appropriate due diligence report, the following assumptions must be made: 

∙The event is targeted ti IT Professionals at both members and non-members, both individuals  and corporations. AIPM currently has 12,000 individual members and 300 corporate  members. Our assumption is broadly that 60% of attendees will be members and 40% will be  non-members. It is expected that total number of 900 delegates to attend. 

∙AIPM is not looking to make a profit from this event. AIPM has sufficient cash reserves to fund  the event, but is ultimately seeking full recovery of this through ticket sales and marketing  income. 

∙ The event should preferably be held in a large well know venue, in the central business district  of; Melbourne, Sydney, Perth or Brisbane. 

∙We envisage the event to run for either 2 or 3 days. We expect that this will be either over  Thursday, Friday and Saturday or Friday and Saturday. 

∙We envisage the presentation topics to all be relevant to Information Technology Project  Management and primarily be case study based. 

∙Each day should be themed and the individual presentations on that day consistent with  delivering an overall message. 

 We envisage a minimum of 4 speakers per day with at least one of those being a key note  speaker. 

∙We envisage there to be a gala dinner on the second night if the event is 3 days or on the first  night if the event spans only 2 days. 

∙We expect there to be a specialist AV/VC consultant provided as part of the cost of the venue.  Therefore the Project Manager only needs to consider the broad technological requirements  and layout of the event, not the specifics. 


AIPM is a national association that represents the interests of Project Management as a profession.  We are essentially a not for profit organization that has both personal and corporate members, runs  training and social events to promote and develop project management and sponsors various project  management awards. We are widely known in the Project Management industry as the Australian  version of the Project Management Institute. 

We have been in operation for over 35 years and now have the scale and industry support to justify an  event of this nature. Our primary focus is adding value to the attendees, ensuring that they come away  with ideas and insight that is directly applicable to their day-to-day work and career development.  Moreover, we want this event to be seen as positively contributing to the development of the Project  Management industry, in terms of an opportunity to network with like minded individuals, access to  industry leaders and leading edge project case studies and validation of the skills and expertise  maintained by project managers, to combat market perceptions caused by the low barrier to entry.

Project Brief Stage 1 Brief 

Principles of Project Management - 2019 

We want the event to be dynamic, interesting and educational, combining good old fashioned project  management principles with social media and cutting edge technology to promote the event and then  facilitate an interactive experience for attendees. 

We are seeking your guidance, support and knowledge as specialist consultants to ensure this event is  the best it can possibly be. We hope this will be the first of many AIPM National celebration events. 


The submission date for your Stage 1 report is Monday Week 5 on or before 9 am and you will  present your findings to the AIPM board on Week 6. 

Reports received after Monday Week 6, 12 noon will be penalised. 


Twenty (20) minutes has been allocated for each group to present and this including question time to  the assessment panel. At the conclusion of all presentations, brief comments will be made on the  content and quality. 

To assist in meeting these strict time constraints: 

∙Only 2 group members are required to present the key aspects of your report.  ∙ Those who did not verbally present the Stage 1 report are required to be the presenters of the  Stage 2 report. 


You will be assessed on both the written report and the verbal presentation. The report counts for  approximately 2/3 of the total mark. 

∙ Assessment related issues: Vinayaga Sarma, telephone 9919 4714. If not available, please  leave a message or send an e-mail. 

The project is primarily an academic exercise designed to expose students to realistic situations.
