Task 2: (60% marks)(2,300 words)
Case Study:
Watson PLC is a British leisure company specialising in the provision and operation
of private health and fitness clubs. They opened their first club in 1994, and they
have subsequently opened a further 24 clubs within the UK. These clubs all
incorporate: a 25 x 12 metre swimming pool, a fitness facility, a Health studio
(including a Spa, with a sauna and steam room), 3 aerobic/dance studios, two
meeting rooms, and a small cafeteria/bar lounge area.
Watson PLC is going to open a new club which will incorporate new facilities and
services. The new club will be larger than Watsons PLCs existing clubs. This is
due to the additions of a small 100 seat cinema, and an extensive beauty spa. The
beauty spa will have a vast range of treatments and services available including:
hairdressing, massage, and cosmetic treatment.
As project manager appointed by Watson PLC at the feasibility stage, you are
required to prepare a report (2,300 words). From a project management
perspective outline the activities required to successfully manage this new
initiative, ensuring that it is on time, and within budget.
The analysis should include the skills and competencies required by the Project
Manager, along with the project management process. Use examples of the
concerns, stages, processes, leadership, and administration and control problems
associated with managing the lifecycle of this major project.
The answers to both tasks are independent and should be addressed separately.
Task 1 answers to six questions (700 words) completed as an individual
task
Task 2 a report that is produced for task two (2,300 words) completed as an
individual task
For your convenience both tasks should be submitted as one document, which
contains both individual tasks.
The criteria for assessing the task two report will be:
Report presentation (20%) (12 marks)
The extent to which the assignment represents an effective report, this will be judged
on:
Appearance: Is a word count included at the end of the report? Is it within the
specified amount? Is the text double spaced?
Structure: Does the report follow the conventions of the format? Does it have a clear
introduction, explaining how it answers the questions? Do the sections of the report
develop ideas in a logical sequence? Are diagrams or other subsidiary information
shown in appendices?
Spelling and grammar: Are all words spelled correctly and is the meaning of
sentences clear?
3
Referencing: Have appropriate references been included in the report. Has a
recognised referencing system been used for notation? (see relevant section in the
Guide to Basic Study Skills)
Use of relevant theory (40%) (24 marks)
Has the right theoretical content been chosen as the basis for answering the
questions? Is there evidence of the use of course notes and books? Is the theory that
is selected significant to the questions?
Analysis (40%) (24 marks)
This measures the extent to which students develop a structured argument for the
points they make, by combining relevant theory with the information provided in the
questions.
