Activity 1: Literature Review, Project/Program Strategic Management
(maximum duration, 2 weeks)
Literature Review comprises the following typical tasks:
o Conduct a team brainstorming session to scope, the size and extent of conceptual studies needed and agree on strategies to complete the same on time.
o Source, classify and analyse a sample of papers, guidelines, textbook chapters etc that address project/program strategic intent, business case, framework and governance challenges and best practices.

o Assemble the work done by individuals in your team and refine it further
o Review and edit it to ensure it reads well and both the contents and the format are of acceptable quality
o Document your literature review results in a summarised and formatted style including use of diagrams and tables to portray the same as far as possible.
