Hi, I’ve had a first go at the sample questions in the Study Guide and would appreciate some feedback to see if I’m on the right path. I’ll be submitting five discussions for the five questions. The first question (below) in particular I’m aware I’ve not written enough but I’m not quite sure what else to write without waffling too much! I’ve listed beside the question how many sides of A4 the answers come out as in my handwriting. Any feedback gratefully received, thanks, Sarah
List five key attributes of a project and describe how each differs from business-as-usual. (2/3)
Projects are unique. Whereas business-as-usual involves the repetition of the same acts all projects are unique.
Projects have a finite timescale. Business-as-usual continues indefinitely whereas a project will run according to a set timescale and schedule.
Projects have set budgets. Business-as-usual is funded by operational budgets with no set budget, whereas a project will often be funded from Capital Expenditure with a finite limit.
Projects seek to bring about business change, whereas business-as-usual is about maintaining the status quo.
Projects will have a defined objective or goal. Business-as-usual is simply working to the same goal several times over.
