Examining the challenges of communication skills in project management students in Australia

Topic: Examining the challenges of communication skills in project management students in Australia.
I need with relevant articles from last five years (2013-2018) articles.
This is the first deliverable of your group that will be due in week 8. The task requires your group to develop an outline proposal of approximately 1500 words excluding references with key information about your intended project. This document essentially outlines the what, why and how of the group research project.  Your group will discuss the research ideas of each group member as explained in the conception phase, prioritise each project idea and eventually agree upon the group research topic for further adoption in assignment 2. In case of disagreement, your group must adopt the topic of a group member who has achieved the highest overall mark in assignment 1.
You should use the guidelines provided within the detailed research proposal template (see Part 2C) for completing the required sections as applicable. The outline proposal should include the following components.
A description of the final research topic
A brief rationale to justify the need and significance for the project.
Research questions or hypothesis (up to three questions)
A brief Methodology
Expected research findings and their implication.
A list of recent main scholarly articles relevant to your group topic that will inform your literature review. (List a minimum of 10 papers using Harvard style)

Explain how the business risks differ between traditional tax and audit services and management consulting services

Assignment 2: Designing Value-Based Service
As the rate of innovation increases, companies face expanding product/service lines, shorter product and service lifecycles, and more frequent product/service transitions. All of these can bring tremendous value but also pose enormous challenges and risks.
The article “The Art of Managing New Product Transitions” by Erhun, Gonclave, and Hopman (2007) from the readings for this module includes a matrix titled “Product Drivers and Risk Factors,” which focuses on Intel, a company that manufactures high-tech products (p. 76). Based on your readings and research, address the following issues:
Redesign the product risk factor matrix so that the factors are appropriate for a services firm that delivers traditional tax accounting and audit services. For example, among the supply risks, assume that the company relies on individuals with specific knowledge of the tax law in the jurisdictions where its clients operate, be it state, federal, or foreign.
Now, assume that the firm wants to develop a management consultancy practice. (Alternatively, you may choose to add a legal services line instead.). Create a separate new matrix that summarizes the additional risk factors for this firm launching a management consultancy or legal services line. What additional risk factors are you adding to your matrix?
Explain how the business risks differ between traditional tax and audit services and management consulting services. In your opinion, what are the three biggest risks the firm faces if it diversifies into the new service line?
Recommend whether the firm should organically grow into a consultancy service or acquire a third party to achieve new goals. Justify your recommendations.
Develop a 6–8-slide presentation in PowerPoint format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2.ppt.
Be sure to include the following in your presentation:
A title slide
An agenda slide
A reference slide
Headings for each section
Speaker notes to support the content in each slide
By the due date assigend, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.

Cn          =            Concentration of contaminant during the sampling period “n”, where “n” is the last of a series of contaminants

Tn          =            Time of sampling period “n”

Note: All concentrations are in parts contaminant per million parts of air or milligrams of contaminant per cubic meter of air.

Air Sampling Problem: You are an industrial hygienist that is conducting personal sampling on a worker who is overseeing a production process involving use of toluene (Note: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has established a Permissible Exposure Limit of 200 parts per million (ppm)).
