V.              Applicable Standards:

Our web-site programmer is come from the exworf IT Sdn. Bhd and he provides a good work attitude when he joins us to design the companys intranet design part. Besides that some of the sport companies such as Slimmer Company, SQ Healthy Sdn. Bhd., and so on also provide us a lot of information, courses, and speech to help us successfully implement this project. Our company will sponsor the courses to all employees that working under company.

 

VI.            Acceptance Criteria:

Sometime the courses may cost heavy. So we will select and connect to those courses are cheaper and can fulfill our healthy requirement such as the swimming course, avoid smoking speech, and so on. In the other hand, the company will only accept the work if it is really can return the feed back for them. To solve this problem, the strong user inputs are very important and needed. We must also develop a method for capturing the benefits while the intranet site is being developed, tested, and after it is rolled out. If the project takes a little longer to complete or costs a little longer to complete or costs a little more than planned, the firm will still view it as a success if it has a good payback and helps promote the firms image as an excellent consulting organization.

 

VII.         Special Requirements:

The installation of new equipment covers more than just computer hardware, it also includes:

*     Hardware make sure that all the parts are functioning well.

*     Software it should be fully tested and run well the computer.

*     Supplies such as tape and disks and new stationary should be sufficient.

After obtaining the benefit from well planning and control, the company has to continue to produce the site preparation before the actual implementation.

IV. Final project report

            The Recreation and Wellness Project is done to support the Manage Your Health, Inc strategic plan, with the objective of reducing internal costs, increasing cross-selling of products, and exploiting new web-based technology.

            Through out the whole project, we have using different method and approach to help in create and develop the project. We are produced a Web Site that could allow the employees to register for company-sponsored classes and program; track data on employees involvement in the recreational and health management programs; offer incentives for people to join the programs; produced the Health Coverage Costs Business Model to track employees health care expenses and company health care costs; the cross-selling system to improve the cross-selling; the web-based application to improve development and delivery of products and services.

            The project was success since the user response has been very positive; the project has met the schedule goal. Although the cost is about $100,000 more than planned, the top management is pleased with the results, where the final cost of the whole project was about $500,000.

            We were using the Project 2002 as the project management tool to create the project Gantt chart, Network Diagram, Resource Sheet, cash flow report, and project summary. The tool was helpful as we can assign each task and locate certain information easily; any modification of the task is done easily by just clicking on it. The tool provides clear and accurate information or output of the project.

            The project was able to complete on time, and was met the project goals. The whole project team was co-operative and willing to give help to other team members, in order to get the project completed. Since the management has changed the project scope, and outsourcing some of the work, the time of completion of the project was extended and the cost of the project increase as well, these make the whole project was cost about $100,000 more than planned. With this, the project team has to assign the new schedule based on the new scope, and create new cost estimation. The new schedule was taken another nine months to be completed.

            By working on this project, the whole project team has learned to be tolerant, co-operative with each other; learning how to be patient every time there was a problem occurs, at the same time, analyze the problem and give the solution to it. Knowing that the project may involve uncertainty, so every part of the project and the project documentation will be saved and have a backup file.

Business Case for Recreation & Wellness Intranet Project

Date: 29th January 2004

Prepared by: Tony Prince

 

1.0  Introduction/ Background

MYHs core business goal is to provide a variety of health care services across the globe. The CEO believes it can enhance development and delivery of its products and services by updating its strategic plan, reducing internal costs, increasing cross-selling of products and exploiting new web-based technologies for the customers and suppliers.

 

2.0 Business Objective

MYH information technology departments strategic goals include continuing growth and profitability. The Recreation and Wellness Intranet project will support these goals by increasing visibility of the current employees. It will also enhance the profitability by reducing internal costs by improving employees health within one year of its rollout. Since MYH information technology department focuses on identifying profitable projects and measuring their value after completion, this project must meet those criteria.

 

3.0 Current Situation and Problem/Opportunity Statement

A recent study found that MYH.Inc pays 20% more than the industry average for employees health care premiums, primarily due to the poor health of its employees. There is an opportunity to provide a new section on the intranet dedicated to sharing health care information across the organization to help improve employee health within one year.

 

4.0 Critical Assumption and Constraints

The proposed intranet site must support the companys business goals and strategy. Current employees must actively support this project. Besides that, it needs to pay itself within 4 years to reduce the internal costs and exploiting new web-based technologies. The project manager must lead the effort, and project team must include participants from various parts of the company. 

 

 

5.0 Analysis of Option and Recommendation

There are 3 options for addressing this project:

1.     Since the business is doing well, so we still can continue to operate without introduce the new project.

2.     Purchase access to specialized software to support the new capability with little in-house development.

3.     Design and implement the new intranet capability using existing hardware and software.

 

Based on discussing with stakeholders, we agree that the option 3 is the best option.

 

6.0 Preliminary Project Requirements

The main features of the Recreation and Wellness Intranet Project include the following:

1.     Accept to intranet for registering recreational programs. Employees are allowed to accept the intranet and register for company-sponsored recreational programs, such as soccer, softball, bowling and other sports.

 

2.     Accept for registering health-related issues classes and programs. They also can register for company-sponsored classes and programs to help them to manage their weight, reduce stress, and other health-related issues.

 

3.     Track data on employee involvement in these recreational and health-management programs.

 

4.     Offer incentives for people to join the programs and do well in them. For example, incentives for achieving weight goals, winning sports team competitions, and so on.

 

5.     Other features suggested by employees, if they add value to the business.

 

 

 

 

7.0 Budget Estimate and Financial Analysis

A preliminary estimate of the cost for the entire project is $200,000. This estimate is based on the Project manager working about 20 hours per week for six months and other internal staff working a total of about 60 hours per week for six months.

Project benefits are based on a negotiating lower premiums that saving about $30/employee/year for full-time employees over the next four years.

Exhibit a summarizes the projected costs and benefits and shows the estimated net present value (NPV), return on investment (ROI), and year in which payback occurs. It also lists assumptions made in performing this preliminary financial analysis. All of the financial estimates are very encouraging. The estimated payback is within four years, as requested by the sponsor. The NPV is $1,456,000, and the discounted ROI based on a four-year system life is excellent at 274 percent.

 

8.0 Schedule Estimate

The sponsor would like to see the project completed within six months but there still have some flexibility in the schedules. We also assume that the new system will have a useful life of four years.

 

9.0 Potential Risks

There have several risks involved with this project. The foremost risk is lack of interest in the new system by employees. There are technical risks in choosing the type of software to track, analyze, delivery, searching, the use of electronic commerce capabilities, and so on. The main business risk is investing the time and money into the project and not realizing the projected benefits.

Project Success Criteria: Our goal is to complete this project within six months for no more than $200,000. The project sponsor, Jaen Tan, has emphasized the importance of the project paying for itself within one year after the intranet site is complete. To meet this financial goal, the intranet site must have strong user inputs. We must also develop a method for capturing the benefits while the intranet site is being developed, tested, and after it is rolled out. If the project takes a little longer to complete or costs a little longer to complete or costs a little more than planned, the firm will still view it as a success if it has a good payback and helps promote the firms image as an excellent consulting organization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VI. Lesson-Learned report

Prepared by: Tony Prince                                                              Date: 25/3/2004

Project Name: Recreation And wellness Intranet Project

Project Sponsor: Mange Your Health Inc. (MYH)

Project Manager: Tony Prince

Project Dates: 1/3/2004

Final Budget: $576000

 

 

  1. We meet the project scope and schedule goal, and the final cost for the whole system was about $500000 even though it cost about $100000 more than planned the top management pleased with the results.

 

  1. Our goal is to complete this project within nine months for no more than $500,000. The project sponsor, Jean Tan, has emphasized the importance of the project paying for itself within one year after the intranet site is complete. To meet this financial goal, the intranet site must have strong user inputs. We must also develop a method for capturing the benefits while the intranet site is being developed, tested, and after it is rolled out. If the project takes a little longer to complete or costs a little longer to complete or costs a little more than planned, the firm will still view it as a success if it has a good payback and helps promote the firms image as an excellent consulting organization.

 

  1. We didnt meet all the project success criteria. The project cost is over what we expect. However the system is finally complete on dated and the sponsor is satisfying the output.

 

  1. The main lessons we learned is the sponsor may be changing some requirement about the system. The sponsor would also please the problem of over cost if the whole system were satisfied what their needed. The communication between manager and sponsor is important to keep the project running smoothly.

 

  1. We were gone right in understanding the sponsor requirement to the project output. The system we design were according to the research we done in early. This aspect were make the sponsor please with the over cost problem.

 

  1. The wrong aspect we done are in estimate the cost of the project. The cost is over $100000 of what we estimated. This is more than 20% of the whole project cost. If the sponsor didnt please with the result we will meet huge problem in it. The project may be stop by sponsor.

 

  1. We must estimate the project cost actually and write the cost more 10% of what we expected. This will solve the over cost problem and the sponsor will not call stop to the project base on the financial problem that caused by project manager.
