Module 2: Commencement and Collaboration – Putting Ideas Into Practice

Topic 6: Implementing the project plan

You have been able to articulate your vision and, as the leader, you now have to make this a reality. As the project leader you have adjusted, amended, and re-scoped the project plan, timelines, deliverables, etc. in accordance with the funded amount and contractual requirements. Consequently you have identified key tasks, secured the team, and outlined the management strategies and governance mechanisms required to complete the project. Your team will now be looking to you for guidance through the next important step, the 'how?'. As you implement the project plan:

  • You will need to identify and plan for any areas that could pose a risk to the successful completion of your project
  • Commencement of your project will also require you to have appropriate infrastructure and resources
  • You will also need an appropriate communication strategy, and mechanisms to ensure accountability is in place.

Learning outcomes

After completing this module you should be able to:

  • Finalise a procurement strategy and plan (infrastructure, materials, and consumables)
