Assignment Details and Instructions:
You are required to select the main elements of international projects, delivered using Agile or Hybrid methods, to be investigated by this assignment. You need to produce a literature review of the selected areas, giving a critique of each selected one. The main criteria for the assignment are covered below.
Describe and Analyse a plan for delivering an International Project in Situation of the COVID-19 Pandemic
You need to formulate and describe a plan for delivering a major international project, using the techniques of Agile or Hybrid Project Management. You should then provide a critical analysis of the main issues that may affect the project implementation in situation of the COVID-19 Pandemic. You should use examples from practice and produce a literature review, summarising the important academic literature sources, in respect of each element. You must also provide recommendations to address the identified issues and thus assist the project manager in delivering a successful project responding to the business impacts of COVID-19.
You are, thus, required to give evidence of appropriate reading (either practitioner or academic) to support your points in respect of the main elements of projects delivered using Agile or Hybrid methods. This work should comprise a critical analysis of the key issues, namely a thorough investigation of the strengths, weaknesses and alternatives in respect of the main elements of such projects.
Quality of Analysis
The quality of your analysis will be considered. This should comprise a critical use of the literature, to underpin and ground evidence, data, models, and theory. You will also reflect on the strengths, weaknesses, and alternatives in respect of the project factors.
The assignment should be presented in a well-structured essay, with appropriate topics chosen, identifying key themes and sub-themes and be well-scoped. A clear, coherent assignment with appropriate referencing should be produced.
