Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Conduct project scope definition activities

1.1 Develop and confirm procedures for project authorisation with an appropriate authority for commitment of resources and effort

1.2 Establish agreement of desired project outcomes with relevant stakeholders

1.3 Develop scope management plan to determine scoping requirements

2. Define and plan scoping project requirements and process solutions

2.1 Critically analyse needs in consultation with client and relevant stakeholders to verify project scope

2.2 Prepare project specifications with project objectives, deliverables, constraints, exclusions, assumptions and principal work activities for delivery of products and services

2.3 Determine and agree measurable project outcomes and benefits to enable quantified evaluation of program performance

2.4 Develop and communicate scope definition, scope management strategies and plans to stakeholders, and seek agreement

2.5 Align program scope to business requirements and organisational strategy

3. Manage scoping process

3.1 Conduct regular program reviews to measure project performance and ensure stated program, business and strategic objectives are met

3.2 Establish and maintain the change management system to form the basis of ongoing scope management

3.3 Conduct reviews of scope changes and take action to ensure project and program objectives are achieved or modified

3.4 Measure project outcomes against defined program scope and aligned strategic objectives

3.5 Communicate results of program outcomes to appropriate authority

3.6 Manage the impact of scope changes within established time, cost and quality constraints according to change control procedures and to meet project objectives

3.7 Review the project planning process and document recommendations for improvements to future projects

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of ability to:

  • prepare project specifications with project objectives
  • develop scope management plan
  • develop scope management strategies
  • conduct regular program reviews
  • measure project outcomes
  • manage the impact of scope changes within established budget and timeline.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • examine a range of products, services and solutions as they apply to various project outcomes
  • explore various stakeholders and relevant levels of authorisation required for the duration of a project
  • explain project life-cycle and the significance of scope management
  • outline scope management plans, methodologies, techniques and tools
  • summarise typical challenges and issues encountered in project scope management and options for addressing them
  • identify and explore various project performance indicators and how project performance can be measured
  • evaluate various vendor products and solutions.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances should be typical of those experienced in the telecommunications networks engineering field of work and include access to:

  • sites on which projects may be conducted
  • forecast data and tools involved in planning
  • a range of software and hardware currently used in industry
  • relevant regulations and specifications that impact forecasting activities.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
