Some notes on report writing can be found below. Report format (required for Assessment 2): Readers of reports expect certain information to be in certain places. They do not expect to search for what they want and the harder you make it for them the more likely they are to toss your report to one side and ignore it. So what should you do? o Follow the generally accepted format for a report: Title/Table of Contents, Executive Summary,

Introduction, Main Body, Conclusions, Recommendations and Reference List. o Organise your information within each section in a logical fashion with the reader in mind, usually

putting things in order of priority – most important first. Report Title/Table of Contents. This is simply the front cover page identifying the report and a Table of Contents page showing each key section of the report and the page number where it can be found in the report.

Executive Summary. Give a clear and very concise account of the main points, main conclusions and main recommendations. Keep it very short, a few percent of the total length. Some people, especially senior managers, may not read anything else so write as if it were a stand-alone document. Keep it brief and free from jargon so that anyone can understand it and get the main points. Write it last, but do not copy and paste from the report itself; that rarely works well. Introduction. This is the first part of the report proper. Use it to paint the background and objective of the report and to show the reader why the report is important. Then explain how the details that follow are arranged. Write it in plain English. Main Body. This is the heart of your report, the facts. It will probably have several sections or sub-sections each with its own subtitle. It is unique to your report and will describe what you discovered about what is being reported on. These sections are most likely to be read by experts so you can use some appropriate jargon but explain it as you introduce it. Arrange the information logically, normally putting things in order of priority – most important first. In fact, follow that advice in every section of your report. Conclusions. Present the logical conclusions of your investigation and analysis. Bring it all together and maybe offer options for the way forward. Many people will read this section. Write it in plain English. Recommendations. What do you suggest should be done? Don’t be shy; you did the work so state your recommendations in order of priority, and in plain English. References. As your report must be academically sound as well as making good business sense, it is essential that your report is supported by accurate in-text referencing and the inclusion of a reference list. Although some reports in the workplace do not require full referencing (and some students may be used to this), it is a requirement in the academic environment and in Assessment 1 (please refer marking guide). This is equitable for all students.

Task Details: Brainstorm with your team and identify a gap/problem/business opportunity and provide an IT solution for the identified problem. You demonstrate the value proposition of the proposed solution/product/service to the actual needs of the customer. You explain in your report: o The Opportunity o Discovery o Problem Statement o Defining a Solution o Value proposition canvas The outcome of your ideation and value proposition will be reflected in a value proposition canvas (along with a written report of 2500 words). The value proposition canvas consists of two parts. One part is the customer profile, in which you describe your customer. The other part is the value map in which you describe how you create value for your customer. If those two parts match with each other then you have a fit in your value proposition. You start with creating your customer profile, after which you will complete your value map. You need to identify: o Customer task: You have to keep in mind the person or the company that would buy your product or

service. Write down the tasks that that person or company has to do or wants to complete in work or in life.

o Customer pains: A customer pain is anything that annoys a customer when getting a job done. It can also be something that slows down or prevents the task being done.

o Customer gains: Anything that makes the customer happy is a potential customer gain. These gains can be required, expected or desired. Required gains must be provided by your service. Expected gains are those that a customer would expect but are not essential. Desired gains are those needs that customer would like to see fulfilled.

o Products and services: When moving over to the value map the first action is to describe the products and/or services of your business.

o Pain relievers: Pain relievers are the solutions that your products and services offer to customer pains. o Gain creators: Gain creators are the functionalities or features of your products and services that

produce outcomes that customers expect or desire. o The fit: Determine if there is a fit between what the customers want and what your business has to

offer Make a large printout of the Value Proposition Canvas template (page 5) and use this in a brainstorm with colleagues. Have a look at the Example for AirBnB to learn how the Value Proposition Canvas can be applied in practice. Create your Value Proposition Canvas via draw.io or other online tools for the submission along with the written report (the print out is for practice only). You can submit the Canvas in pdf format. https://about.draw.io/create-a-value-proposition-canvas-with-draw-io/ Recommended tools for teams to utilize for efficiency of project management and team work:

Google Doc, Slide, and Drive Trello Slack

Submission requirements details: Make sure your report is written based on the guideline of assessment 4 in the Course Guideline.

Assessment 4 Group Work Activity Report – 3 marks (of 20 for whole assessment) Each group will provide a group work report on how the group has worked together to produce the PMBOK reports. It should not contain the main deliverables of the PMBOK project reports. Each group will document how members discuss and agree, the division of responsibilities and describes how individual efforts capitalised on the strengths of each group member. It will be used as evidence of individual contributions in the group. It is therefore in each member’s interest to ensure that their contribution to the final report is complete. Each group is expected to have at least three group meetings for the group assignment. The minutes of group meetings should be documented and attached as an appendix of this group work report, clearly indicating who was present, issues and actions, agreed timelines, and the like. The group work report must indicate that a fair and reasonable distribution of work amongst group members was achieved. Periodic information such as emails or diary entries must be inserted into the
