Tasks

Devise project aims and objectives for a chosen scenario

Aims: The project focus to manage a successful business project by reflecting the corporate social responsibility (CSR) and the benefits of following it.

Objectives: The CSR ( corporate social responsibility ) is defined as the voluntary commitment of businesses that tries to incorporate the organisation practices achieving its goal by making and following some rules and regulations in terms of companies. The rules governed by them are following:

The project deals with the management of business of the Allan Reeder Limited corporation with the help of CSR i.e. corporation social responsibility (Baiden and Price, 2011). This project's objective is to manage the projects of the enterprise by following its rule like maintaining the ethical values within the businesses. Social, economic and geographical impacts including the standard of human rights are considered too. The activities like partnership among the local communities, investments which is done socially, communication between consumers and employees, etc. are managed by the CSR only. The CSR also insures the protection of environment and the workers (Doloi and Sawhney, 2011 ). So, the company should follow the legislative rules laid by CSR in order to make highest turnover.

The project management process covers the aspects of cost, scope, time, quality, communication, risk and resources . These all factors impacts a negative as well positive image on the production of the product. The research methodologies comprises of a list of activities like defining the objective and aim of the project, initialisation, motoring and controlling of the production's issues, as well as the execution of the project. This is reliable and accurate as per the project.

project management plan that covers aspects of cost, scope, time, quality, communication, risk and resources

Project management plans are used by the project holders in order to solve the difficulties which are coming during its implementation and execution. There are three restraints present in this plan that are listed below:

Time: Time is a critical factor which can't be controlled. The activities involved in a project can take less or more amount of time to end depending on the number of workers involved in that task. Their personal experience and wisdom also affects. The projects which are completed after crossing the deadline generates a negative effect (Idemudia, 2011).

Cost: Certain budgets are made in order to implement a projects. So, managers as well as organisation should execute the project with in the specified budgets.

Scope: This shows the output of the project which are addressed by the project team. The team head ought to manage the scope as well as future alteration done with that because it affects both time and costing of the project(Jeston and Nelis, 2014).

Quality is not the part of project management but this is the motto of every delivery.

Project head determines that the best quality is achieved by high costing. So, the use of bad quality resources hinders the overall production as the works are not done at the allotted deadlines. So, the quality is most wanted characteristics of the projects.

The management of project includes various steps which are following:

Defining the project: Firstly the aims and objectives are defined in order to make successful projects.

Initiation: Before starting the projects the resources as well as the plans are made. This is called initiation of the scheme.

Planning: This includes the schemes which are developed in order to run the plans or projects. Time, cost and scope are focussed here.

Execution: This process comprises of all the work done by the co workers and it also gives the outcome of the project.

Monitor: The managers take necessary decisions by examining the work flow and control the whole environment so that the smoothness in the operation would maintained.

Closing: After delivering the tasks the management process of project will closed.

Risk management: To overcome the problems and summons occurring in the project management process is termed as managing the risk. The head of the projects ought to adjust the three factors that is explained above. They should make a situation of equilibrium among the time, cost and scope in order to achieve high quality product. The managers should prevent the share holders from making any new change in the scope as well as they have to manage the limits of the human resource and the economical conditions. In order to do risk management the mangers should focus on following tasks:

  • They have to define the projects and allot the tasks amongst the team members. They should also manage resources regarding that projects.
  • They are initiating by preparing the objectives needs for the project and should working to meet those aims.
  • The important task of him is to keep updating the stakeholders regarding the progress of required projects.
  • They need to concentrate on the risks and solve such issues.

The communication among the stakeholders, employees and the customers should be done on regular basis. This will improve the relationships among them and will be beneficial for the organisation. The resources should be of high quality as they are used by the employees to gain the best quality projects and delivery.

Work breakdown structure and a Gantt chart to provide time frames and stages for completion

The work-breakdown structure (WBS) precise the tasks requirement so that the good production is achieved. It is shown as successive layers of the project's work areas(Hall, 2012). At the lower level normally work package or the activities are arranged. The WBS regarding this project are made below:

Carry out small-scale research by applying qualitative and quantitative research methods

Research methods are useful for business organisation, and for a new start ups or small scale enterprise, these methods are able to provide them data and information (Baiden and Price,2011). There are two types of research methods – quantitative and qualitative research methods. In Allan reader Limited, which is applied, it depends upon organisation capability and impotence. Both of them, have their own strategies, but when they put together, they able to provide the form of mixed-methodology research that helps in intelligibly understand the focus consumers needs and & wants and the quality of competition. Qualitative and quantitate research methods are such as follow:-

Quantitative research: Quantitative research methodology, focuses to be more integrated than qualitative research. Quantitative research is a paper based research, that included online survey, postal survey and telephonic call (Bakker and et. al., 2011.). It means to gain more information and data from the area of the interest, in which sampling sized is everything. The research gives busy bourgeois the quality to collect large bulk of data efficiently and quickly. It is also providing a general view of Allen Reader Ltd. and its target that it is become more demographical beyond its survey participants. The results and analysis of research can processed with speed also. The types of quantitate research are as follows:- questionnaire and surveys.

Qualitative Research: Qualitative research is a methodological analysis that focuses on what people feel, how they think and why they make different needs and wants. For example, if Allen Reader Ltd., thinks about changing their brand and gained some qualitative research forms , in order to understand the affectation reactions people with that product and its qualities. The method does non includes any numerical information and data and it a kind of investigation of any area or gathering (Doloi, Iyer and Sawhney, 2011). Types of qualitative researched are are as follows:- focus groups and one on interview.

As per above questionnaire, it is concluded that CSR activities are a important tool for every organisation, they maintain direct relationship with competitive advantages. In an voluntary organisation, CSR activities can be easily implemented. Through an distinct department of CSR activities some problems can be reduces (Hall, 2012).

The project has used many research methods like defining , initialising , executing , monitoring as well as controlling the projects in order to develop a fruitful result for the welfare of the company. The methods also describes the role of a good project managers and co-workers. The methods used in this project are hundred percent accurate. Because it is created by examining each and every parts and the issues regarding this by following the legislative norms and conditions of the CSR. So, by following this the organisation would surely meet their motive. The methods and the solution given in this research project is quite trustworthy. There may be no issues regarding the delivery of the product.

Analyse research and data using appropriate tools and techniques

There are the following techniques that helps in analysing research and data

Mean: Mean is also known as Arithmetic mean, and it is the total of sum of a database or list of numbers that divided by the number of items that mentioned in the list. It is an numerical quantity that can be replace the every existent item, and gives the similar results. It is useful in assessing the overall data of the Allan Reader Limited, with that company is able to known the customers choice as well as their needs and wants (Hotho, and Champion, 2011). Means is an geographical summary of data, using this tool, organisations can easily compute their sales and revenues.

Standard deviation: Standard deviation is often presents with sigma. But it can be ambitious to explicate as a individual number of its own. Basically, a small standard deviation refers the values that represents in statistical data, that close to the mean of data set. And a large standard deviation refers that those values are set in data farther away from the mean and its average (Idemudia, 2011). It is helpful in organisation, when managers have to observe and justify the data and information and it directly reflects large amount or a group of persons on which managers are being studied.

Sample size determination: This tool is useful in assessing a large number of peoples, in which communicator can easily get revenant information about the products and services of the company. It is not possible to collect data from large groups, in one time period, so that sample do it job very well. This method is assistive in find out a rights size of sample that will provide accurate information and due to this facts are always real and based on realistic activities.

Research tools and techniques are accommodating in providing facts and data from the area of interest. These techniques are mean, standard deviation, and sample size determination. By using these elements an researcher can get valid and actual facts from the customers. Along with this, communicator get numerical as well as a sample of data and information (Myers, 2013). These factors of data analysis are able to collect more information in a time of period. After that organisation can make direct relationship with their customers and it have well being knowledge of consumer's needs and wants. These methods are also effective managers wants information in geographical and numerical terms.

In terms of project management, every organisation expects outcome and results of their projects. Project management means to manages the over all activities and plan for a particular projects because the growth of the company is always depends on it. If an project become successful, it grow up name and fame of company as well as its market share. The outcomes of projects are based on organisation development and growth because it makes them strong in terms of finance (Mir and Pinnington, 2014.). Project also effects the decision making activities of the Allan reader limited, it reflects their long terms or futuristic goals and activities. For that company have to planned there strategies and implemented it in organisation at the time of needed.
P6 Communicate appropriate recommendations as a result of research and data analysis
