With reference to the Teradyne Case Study: The Jaguar Project and relevant literary sources, evaluate the extent to which the key principles, tools and techniques as detailed within the Project Management Institute Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMI PMBoK) support the project manager in managing projects effectively, taking into account the influence of context.
Important Notes and guidance:
- You must follow a management report format e.g. Title page, Executive Summary, Contents Sheet, Introduction, Main Body, Conclusions and Recommendations; each section and subsection of the report should be numbered.
- You should make use of the information provided by the case study to support your evaluation of the project management toolsMarking Guidelines:70-100 Distinction.

The Assessment Process…
Meeting of Internal Examiners…our assessments for this module are weighted at 20 credit points at Masters Level. All written assignments are double blind marked by two members of staff (internal examiners), who will meet to agree a final mark.
This meeting is to agree the mark awarded between the two markers and discuss standards, particular problems and general issues arising. These recommendations are passed to the External Examiner.
Assignments and Internal Assessor’s Reports sent to the External Examiner…
The External Examiner looks at a sample of MBA assignments paying particular attention to any which are graded: distinction, fail or borderline distinction or fail. The External Examiner also assesses consistency of marking and considers the overall standards compared with similar students on similar programmes worldwide. The External Examiner may wish to discuss general or particular issues with the module team and has the authority to recommend the up-grading or down-grading of any or all marks. The External Examiner may also recommend the oral examination of any student.
- The Examination Board… Final examination marks and the awarding of degrees are decided at this meeting, with the External Examiner in attendance. Marks are provisional until this meeting. This is why grades can on no account be discussed with students until after this meeting when final marks are agreed.
- Assessment and Assessment Criteria…Assessment criteria indicate the dimensions against which internal and external examiners will assess your work. It is important to realize that your work will be assessed as a whole, not as a simple summation of these categories.The enclosed marking pro-forma indicates an allocation of marks for various sections and each section contains an outline of the qualities we expect. There will be penalties for an over or under-length piece of work. This could result in your assignment being awarded a mark equivalent to 10% below its worth. Penalties on length may seem harsh but part of the academic exercise involves discipline on how to succinctly present the material you wish to include.
