The emphasis is on demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of leadership in the project context. Your report should: • briefly inform the reader about the mega trend (no more than 10 to 15% of the report) • identify the relevance to project leadership • identify any challenges or implications for project leaders in responding to the megatrend • discuss and analyse project leadership practices, skills & knowledge and identify any deficits or strengths in the current workforce being adequately able to respond to the megatrend • present a skills gap and propose actions, training, education etc to help close any gap or ways to leverage any strengths that you may identify • conclude with a dot point list of the major recommendations for action You are free to design your own structure however the above dot points would be a useful way to approach your report layout. You may use appendices if you need. Headings, citations, references and appendices will not count towards your overall word limit. While we will be reasonable in how we gauge your word usage, please endeavour to remain under the upper limit of 3000 words. Audience This report should be an objective and professional document that draws upon academic, professional and other high-quality sources to substantiate the logical perspective you take on your selected megatrend. You are aiming for professional publication quality (not peer reviewed academic journal and not a personal opinion piece). You are expected to cite your sources in this assignment using SCU Harvard. Your audience is the wider project profession including those senior organisational members accountable for projects.
