Create a business case for establishing a Dundee Tram System

Summary: This is an individual assignment where you are responsible for creating a detailed and unique business case, including a project plan, for the project described in the following pages. Your assignment will be in two parts.

Submission deadline: August 7th 2016

Submission modality: Electronically through RKC’s OnlineCampus Please include Part A in

the same document as Part B.

Word Limit: 3000 +/- 10%


You have recently been appointed by the Dundee City Council who is seeking to develop a tram system of its own but they have concerns over the problems that Edinburgh had with their tram project. Your assignment is to write a report on the prospective Dundee tram system as a project – considering what is likely to go well and what not so well. Your report should therefore focus on the project management aspects including the key risks e.g. loss of money and overrunning its schedule and not meeting the performance requirements expected from an infrastructure project of this type.

Part A: Project Plan Presentation notes and slides

Part B: Main report

Part A (20%) involves preparing the presentation of your business case and project plan as detailed in the assignment brief below.

Part B (80%) involves the creation of a detailed business case, project plan, and schedule, and discussion of other relevant issues.

More detail on the assignment requirements is provided in the project brief that follows – continue reading!
