PM Approaches: Apply your knowledge of a range of project management approaches to the project you plan to undertake. Section includes: a brief evaluation of Traditional, Agile, Extreme and Emerxte PM approaches, along with an explanation of which approach you plan to take in direct relation to the specific requirements of your project. 2.

Your plan does not need to include a budget but it should be realistic and cost-effective. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GENERAL ADVICE: - • You are taking the role of Project Manager. • You are being asked to produce a plan, NOT to actually undertake the work. • It’s OK if the plan contains some uncertainties. - For example, if you plan to research a range of locations in order to decide which one to use, then the final location will not be known at the planning stage. Such uncertainties are OK, as long as they are planned for. • Check whether your plan is clear enough by asking “Could another person run the project using this plan?”
