Context:
Enterprise Environment Factors (EEFs) influence on various aspects of organisations, operations and
project outcomes, even a project team usually has no control over them. Nevertheless, it is important
for the project team to effectively manage EEFs as they can impact on project success. In PMBOK 6
th
Edition (PMI, 2017), EEFs are key inputs to project management processes, and directly and indirectly
connected to Impact analysis, Benefit realisation, and Stakeholder engagement.
Reflective exercises can help increase the value of the learning experience by relating new materials of
learning to prior knowledge and create a better understanding of the discipline. Reflection improves
learning by providing a structure to reflect systematically over time on the learning process, and to
develop critical reflective aptitudes, skills and habits. Successful reflection enables self-awareness,
personal and professional growth, lifetime learning, and will help students develop into active and
aware learners and become a reflective practitioner in their professional life.

Instructions:
In this assessment, students are to work individually or in groups (max 4 members) to complete a
project management report to Executive Management, using PMBOK 6
th Edition (PMI, 2017) as a
guide. Referencing other provided learning resources and personal research are highly encouraged
too. This assessment contains 2 parts.
Part A – Module 4 Discussion activity: EEFs and Tools of Impact Analysis
In Assessment 2 Part A, students will use their project developed for Assessment 1:
Identify relevant enterprise environmental factors (EEFs) of the project;
Propose a tool, technique or framework intend to use for qualitative and/or quantitative impact
analysis of EEFs;
Justify why the selected tool/technique is appropriate.
Students are encouraged to identify EEFs from the project chosen and share personal thoughts with
group members in the class. Actively seek feedback and inputs from facilitators. The individual and/or
groups should organise discussion notes and upload it on the Blackboard accordingly.
Assessment 2 Part A is due at the end of Module 4. The discussion can be arranged in a “Main post
and Responding post” format, or In-Class discussion notes format.
Part B – Impact Analysis Report and Individual Reflection
In Part B, students will assess and incorporate the feedback received from their peers in Module 4
discussion and submit a report on the impact analysis of EEFs identified within 1500 words. The report
should address the following:
Evaluation of the internal and external factors and their impact on project management
processes;
Development of strategies to realise and optimise potential benefits;
Drafted communication plan and outcomes to diverse stakeholders.
At end of the report, each group member is required to provide a 500-word or equivalent of personal
learning reflection. The reflection should cover
What key knowledge and skills you learned through this subject?
How will they benefit you further study and career?
Any good or bad of your overall learning experience?
Assessment 2-Part B is due at the end of Module 5

Demonstration of accomplishments
It is students’ choice on how they wish to present this reflection. Students may use a wide range of
digital and multimedia for presentation. Alternatively, it could be in form of a writing piece. “My
Portfolio” on Blackboard is a space set up for students to collect and organise artefacts representative
of work completed over time. It helps students demonstrate and record progress and achievement.
Students are welcome to use the portfolio to record their learning and reflection. This is a personal
space for the student. “My Portfolio” can be found under ‘Assessments’
à ‘My Portfolio’.
