(2 marks) A project milestone is a way to observe, measure and monitor the progress and/or performance of a project. Milestones in general exist as intermediate stages that must be fulfilled before reaching a final goal or objective. In terms of their usefulness, milestones can be defined and provide a foundation from which to monitor progress. They can also serve as proof for explaining and reporting the status of a project. An example of milestones would be the usage of time or resources. This refers to the specific number of hours or materials allotted to a project. For example, if a project is expected to take 10 hours and cost $10,000 to finish, completing five hours of work and spending $5,000 may be considered a milestone. 15.

(5 marks) Convince others that there is a genuine need for change/improvement.

Provide a vision of how much more improved their lives will be if they do change, or support the improvement. The vision must be sound and supported by honest intentions and practice. It must be tied to results clear, tangible, bottom line results and show how the improvement results will add value. Provide strong leadership and lead by example. Demonstrate that you know what you are doing by generating positive and visible results early in the improvement process. This acts as reinforcement proof that the change will really work. Organisational change is about changing organisational performance, with a reason. That reason must be tied directly to results if the tie between change and results is too nebulous, people will fail to support the change.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
