for complete customer saƟsfacƟon and 2. To bring the
OrganizaƟon’s quality policies into the projects.
Quality is a percepƟon based on the need of the customer
QA: focuses on revising the processes.
QC focus on verifying that quality requirements are being
meet. Best Ɵme to do perform QC is aŌer finishing the
product/service and before handing it to the customer. It
can also be done aŌer important milestones/ stages are
completed.
Some of the tools from yesterday can help you validate your
change proposals by finding root causes, or where a process is
failing. Fishbone diagram, process flowcharts will be helpful for
your current Assessment project!

Hi team!
Yesterday’s class was amazing sharing your experiences when
supervising and coordinaƟng various acƟviƟes while managing

because of its uniqueness and diverse teams.

manage people can determine the success or failure of
the project.
The resources that we need to acquire and manage can
be: Internal (we need to allocate) or external (we need to
procure)
Interpersonal, negoƟaƟon and management skills will not
only help you to leas your project’s team but also to
effecƟvely engage stakeholders.

You can also access your key learning resources for the class
theory recordings from modules 1 and 2 and extra resources for
module 2.
Next class we will discuss about some good tools from Quality
Management that will also help you to validate your change
proposals; also, we will deliver a group acƟvity to pracƟce for
assessment 1.
Finally, here is a snapshot on how groups for Assessment 2 are
forming so far:

Earned Value Management (#1) f…
Gantt Charts vs Burn-Down Charts
Yesterday we learned some of the tools to control Scope, Budget
and Schedule, here the three most important ideas to keep in
mind:
– Why we control scope, budget and schedule? to make sure we
the project is delivering the value expected by our client
– How do we do it? Comparing what was planned with current
performance and using tools such as: EVA, Trend analysis, what if
scenarios etc.
– What are the results? Define correcƟve or prevenƟve acƟons
required and change requests.

Week 2 class highlights, slides, recordings and next
week’s activity
Posted on: Tuesday, 8 June 2021 11:48:13 o’clock AEST
1. Project management isn’t about blocking or embracing
change, but about controlling it in a way that benefits the
business and brings the project outcome closer to the goals of
the business.
2. The iniƟal and most important to manage change in projects, is
establish a process right from the beginning, so, when potenƟal
changes arise, everybody knows what to do. Suggested
processes are: IdenƟfy the need of the change – submit a
change request- analyse impacts – approve/or reject the
change – implement acƟon – communicate – and monitor the
change.
3. Some tools to manage change are: GanƩ charts, Excel
spreadsheets, Milestone charts, Stakeholder analysis, and
specialized PM soŌware such us: MS Project, Merlin Project
libre. Change Management soŌware: Gensuite, Solarwind,
Whaƞix.
Hi everyone!
We had a great class yesterday, thanks for aƩending and for your acƟve
parƟcipaƟon.

some of the tools and techniques required to manage change when it
occurs. Here the 3 main ideas to keep:

Get together with 2 or 3 classmates during the week
and summarize the main ideas of the case study to
discuss next class. This will help us get to know each
other to start thinking on your groups for
assessment 2.
Project Background. Main goal?
How is it organized? Constraints? Schedule?
Milestones?
Main stakeholders?
What problems do you see?
Next class we will keep going deeper on tools that will help you for the
analysis on your first assessment.

some videos to warm up before class, or as a top up after class:

It has also come to my attention that some of you are a bit lost on
how to get into the class, here a little “how to guide” for those
who are new or have not used BB collaborate ultra before:

Finally, we got super good news! I have received the Case Study
that we will be using for ALL our assessments is the “DAMS”
Project, which can be accessed here:
PROJ6003_Assessment Case Study_Department Asset
Management System – DAMS Project.pdf
I recommend starting to read it and highlight the main ideas
during the next week since this case will be used as well in our

Let’s make the best out of this learning experience!
Today was all about giving a good start to our course and, setting
clear rules, here the three main things to remember:
– Academic expectations: critical thinking applied, high level, extensive
research to support your arguments, correct use of academic writting
style, use of APA citation in all your work, use of thrustable valid
sources (PMI, Library, peer reviewed articles) allow us to make
mistakes and learn from them.
– Personal expectations: Honesty, respect, thrust, open
communication, puntuality, creativity, participation, engagement,
asking questions, integrity and ethics.

Welcome to PROJ6003 – Project Execution & Control!
My name is Gabriela Jimenez (Gaby) your Learning Facilitator
and I am very excited to share this journey with you to learn
together.
Our online sessions will run each week on Mondays 6:30 pm to
9:30 pm AEST. (Please check the time according to your time
zone e.g., Adelaide would be 6:00pm to 9:00pm)
First, I would like to introduce myself with a short video with a
little ‘about me’ here:

Ultra in your Blackboard.
1. First class
I will provide an overview of this subject, some basic “principles of
conduct” and expectations as well as an overview of the 2
Assessments we have in this subject, with an emphasis on
Assessment 1.
2. Key Learning Resources
I like to give you additional resources for you to use/research
during your studies. I’ve already added several additional
resources for each of your modules in the “Key Learning
Resources” area in your Blackboard. I’ll be adding extra
resources, as we move forward, if necessary. In that same area
you will also find the recommended textbooks we use for this
subject. However, the version of the PMBOK in that link is the 5th
edition, to which I’m recommending all students to look for the 6th
edition in our Library.
3. Assessments
As a general approach, I provide something I call “Assessment
Breakdown Structure” for each Assessment a few weeks prior to
your assessment deadline with more details to help you prepare
as much as possible as well as give you more opportunities to
ask questions.
Actual dates of your assessments can be found on the Lecturer &
Term Information:
4. Slides & Announcements
I also share with you my lecturer slides through Announcements
on your Blackboard after the class (usually the day after). The
Blackboard portal and email are the main communication
methods we use in this subject!
5. Best way to contact me:
If you have any questions before the class begins next week (or
at any time during your studies), the best way to contact me is
through:
Looking forward to starting this new learning experience with you
all!
