Visions of Splendour: Five Phase Project Management and the journey up the mountain

Paul Herring

on Wednesday, 7 April 2010 10:30 - 11:10 in room Plenary Hall

The end goal of a successful project can be a most impressive product that can fairly and fully be described as a ‘Vision of Splendour’, a thing of beauty, a creative accomplishment of considerable merit.

However, the challenge of reaching this goal, this ‘Vision of Splendour'. requires a climb up a mountain which can be steep and arduous in places and even treacherous at times.

It is truly a ‘journey up the mountain’.

This session will look at the use of the 5 Phase Project Management technique to produce excellence in interactive multimedia products by Yr 11 & 12 students studying the course Information Technology Systems (Qld).

Along with a brief introduction to this approach to Project Management, the benefits that accrue and the issues that arise with this approach will be discussed. A number of outstanding products, including submissions for each of the 5 Phases will be displayed and profiled.

The assessment of the criteria for each phase will also be highlighted and discussed and profiles/templates made available.
