ASSIGNMENT SPECIFICATION AND DELIVERABLES As you know, FIT senior management had decided to invest in the Student Services professional services function of the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT). Your team is a project management consultancy partnership that undertakes contracts from clients and works with them to plan and manage internal service development projects that include IT design and development. Assume that you have just completed the projects in the portfolio and successfully launched the systems. Your team is required to give a project closure presentation, pitch to the client (FIT Educational Services) and FIT operations management team, summarising your work (from Assignments 1 and 2) and should cover the following aspect: The portfolio objectives; Summary of portfolio investment results; Portfolio assessment and Lessons learned . The lessons learned process includes gathering, archiving and presenting data about the project plans, the budget, schedule and information about the actual performance versus those plans as well as the projects variances and the corrective action that was taken to resolve problems. This information provides future project managers an advantage in quickly and accurately planning their projects and learning from what worked and what didnt. 8 | Page FIT2002 (Semester 2, 2022) Assignment 2 Notes: You should make use of information from all the Deliverables in Assignments 1 and 2. As needed you should make reasonable realistic assumptions. You are free to make assumptions as to whether the portfolio is completed within the nine months scheduled timeframe or not. Your lessons learned should cover team challenges or any problems/challenges with the projects and how you addressed them. Instructions: 1. Please upload your presentation slides (one submission per group) by 12.30 Wednesday 19 October 2022 on the FIT2002 Moodle site under the Assignment 2 Presentation link. 2. Every member of the team needs to actively participate in the presentation which will happen during the Week 12 applied class. 3.
