It incorporates several areas of knowledge from the Project ManagementBody of Knowledge (PMBoK) and it affects and interacts with the application of PMBoK in aproject. Different stages of the PML may require focussing on different areas of the PMBoK,and project managers need to assess the PML for their project to identify possible risks, planfor resourcing and commence communicating with stakeholders. This assessment requiresthat you answer the following question:“What areas of the PMBoK are affected by the Project Management Lifecycle the mostand how do we ensure alignment between the lifecycle of the project and theimplementation of PMBoK in projects?”. To answer this question, you will need to:(a) Post a 600 word response to this question, based on your opinion, to the DiscussionForum on the learning portal.(b) Respond to one other student post by critiquing their opinion and comparing it withyours in 200 words.The assessment requires that you critically read and interpret both the Project ManagementLifecycle and the PMBoK.Instructions:1. Read about the PMBoK and the Project Management Lifecycle to familiarise yourselfwith their fundamental concepts. Critically reflect on your readings to form an opinion ofboth. Commence writing your opinion to answer the question and support that opinionby using at least six (6) references from academic or industry literature. Cite thesereferences in your opinion of 600 words both in-text and as a reference list at the end ofyour opinion piece. The word count does not include the reference list and is +/-10%.2. Read one other student’s post. Think about their opinion and try to compare andcontrast it to yours. This will allow you to “critique” their view. You can do this byhighlighting the things you agree with and those you disagree with in their post. Youneed to justify and explain your critique of their opinion. Try, where possible, to refer tosome of the literature you read or even your own working experiences. You will need towrite 200 words in your response. This does not include the reference list and is +/- 10%.PROJ6000_Assessment 1 Brief_081118.Docx Page 3 of 5Output and Submission:Submit your completed assessment by the end of module 2 (Week 4) on Blackboard.Learning Resources:Hermano, V., & Martín-Cruz, N.
