Project Background The JCU Townsville Fire, established in 2001 as a team
within the Australian WNBL tournament, is the only
professional women’s sporting club north of Brisbane. Run
as a not-for-profit community owned entity since 2011, the
Fire primarily sustains itself through the revenue generated
from ticket sales, membership, sponsorship and
merchandising sales. Over the course of its existence the
club has experienced great success, recently appearing in
four consecutive grand finals and winning two consecutive
titles. Additionally, it is currently ranked number one in the
competition in terms of attendance, membership and
revenue.

Despite this tremendous success, the club still faces


hardships. One of the main weaknesses of the JCU Fire,
according to the club’s 2016 strategic business review, is a
lack of long term financial sustainability. For example, it
takes considerable resources to sustain the wages of
players to keep them working during the season as well as
the off-season, leading to many of the players simply being
employed in a part-time capacity. Due to these financial
limitations, the club is seeking to expand its sources of
revenue by increasing the amount of government grants it
applies for. To receive grant money, the club must realise
ways in which to serve the North Queensland community
and create tangible outcomes which satisfy the objectives
of the specific government grants. Importantly, the Fire
players are in a prime position to leverage their profile as
professional athletes to influence the community.
Therefore, by engaging in benevolent causes within the
region, the club is able to not only raise revenue through
the reception of government grants, but can also increase
the amount of people in North Queensland who are fans of
women’s basketball or who are interested in playing.

Thus, the purpose of this project is to design a feasible way


for the JCU Fire to participate in the North Queensland
community in a positive and meaningful way. The goal of
this community engagement will not only be to generate a
positive revenue stream for the club through grant income,
but also to increase participation in the sport of women’s
basketball in terms of both players and fans. Ultimately,
through this project, the club is hopeful to maximise the
potential of its players as role models and to instill lasting
changes in the community through the promotion of active

and healthy lifestyles.

Project Objectives/Issues to be With the objectives of the JCU Fire in mind, the purpose of
addressed this project will be to devise a specific way for the club to
engage with the community. Of course, in order to align
with the objectives of any particular government grant, this
project must have a narrowed scope. Here, the issue which
this project will focus on is the health problems faced by
people in the North Queensland community. Specifically,
the scope of this project will be limited to the issue of heart
conditions such as cardiovascular disease, which are largely
preventable. Chiefly, the project will aim to leverage the
profile of the Fire players as professional athletes and
positive role models to bring about improvements in the
health and well-being of young people in North
Queensland. The primary objective of the project will be to
instill healthy habits in young people concerning nutrition
and exercise to ensure that they avoid developing heart
conditions in adulthood.

Importantly, chronic diseases are the main cause of death


in Australia, accounting for 90% of all deaths, according to
the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (2014). Of
these, the most fatal coronary ailments – such as
cardiovascular disease – are largely preventable. According
to a 2014 report by the National Heart Foundation, the
incidence of cardiovascular disease in most of North
Queensland exists well above the national average. 23.8%
of people are diagnosed with the disease in Townsville, and
27.5% in Cairns. In rural communities, the chances of
developing a heart condition are twice as high (ABC, 2016).
For the indigenous community, who account for over 6% of
the population in places such as Townsville (Townsville City
Council, 2016), the probability of suffering from a coronary
condition is three times as high (Heart Foundation, 2017).

The reason for this alarming increase in the prevalence of


heart disease in North Queensland can be largely
attributed to the worsening of various risk factors. For
example, according to a report conducted by the Australian
Institute of Health and Welfare (2014), 70% of all
cardiovascular disease mortality in the country can be
attributed to the effects of physical inactivity, high blood
pressure and high cholesterol. As indicated by the Chief
Health Officer Queensland (2016), the probability of
developing a heart condition increases threefold for people
who are obese by the age of 18. While such chronic

Taylor Cox, Johan Eriksson, Amy Kumpus, Zhendong Liu,… Workbook: Project Proposal BU3102 copy SP1 2017
Created: 23-FEB-17 Last Modified: 02-MAR-17 Page 10 of 36 pages
conditions are uncommon in young people, the incidence
of these diseases in adults largely reflects the influence of
risk factors which are present before the age of 18
(Swinburn et al., 2004). According to a study by the
Queensland Government (2016), the incidence of obesity in
the state has risen from 17% in 2004 to 24% in 2016. As of
2016, 26% of children aged 5 to 17 in North Queensland
were overweight or obese. The same survey reported that
60% of children in North Queensland performed
insufficient physical activity, 35% consumed insufficient
amounts of fruit, and 90% consumed insufficient amounts
of vegetables. Thus, what this indicates is that the rising
prevalence of chronic heart conditions is chiefly due to
poor nutrition and lack of exercise, which is something
which stems from childhood. In Townsville, there are over
66,000 people under the age of 24, meaning that there is a
tremendous amount of young people who are susceptible
to this chronic condition (ABS, 2008).

Given the magnitude of this issue in North Queensland, it


presents a valuable opportunity for the JCU Fire to engage
in a program with the intention of remedying this health
trend. According to Mutter & Pawlowski (2013), figures who
resemble role models to the community are able to
influence the learning and behaviour of others. This is
especially true in this context, given that the JCU Fire is a
sporting team. The players’ statuses as healthy and active
sportspeople should be useful in persuading the younger
demographic of the North Queensland area to embrace a
healthier, more active lifestyle. This puts the JCU Fire in an
excellent position to ameliorate this issue. Additionally,
through their attempts to solve this issue, the players will
“project the image of a good community citizen”, which
improves the reputation of the club in the eyes of the
public (Walker et al., 2010). Furthermore, by acting as role
models within the community, the club will effectively “build
and strengthen social networks” between the players and
the public (Sparvero & Chalip, 2007). A by-product of this
may be that more young people become involved in the
sport, thereby increasing the number of supporters and
players in the region. Hence, it is in the best interests of the
club and the community for the JCU Fire to attempt to
remedy this problem.

For the JCU Fire to be able to derive revenue from this

Taylor Cox, Johan Eriksson, Amy Kumpus, Zhendong Liu,… Workbook: Project Proposal BU3102 copy SP1 2017
Created: 23-FEB-17 Last Modified: 02-MAR-17 Page 11 of 36 pages
program, the outcome sought will need to align with the
objectives of a specific government grant. One such grant is
the Active Healthy North Queensland grant program, which
is offered by the North Queensland Primary Health
Network. Primarily, the grant aims to improve the
promotion of health in the North Queensland area.
According to the grant guidelines (2016), priority will be
given to programs which aim to “prevent chronic disease
through early intervention strategies which promote
healthy lifestyle behaviours” in the form of encouraging
good nutrition and regular exercise. As aforementioned,
the JCU Fire is in a good position to leverage their profile as
sportspeople and role models to satisfy these objectives.
Thus, it is arguable that the club would not only be able to
satisfy its goal of contributing towards a positive outcome
for the community, but also to provide itself with a new
revenue stream in the process.

Project Strategy In order to produce the deliverable for this project, various
key steps will need to be undertaken. Firstly, information
will need to be reviewed concerning the potential existence
of past or present programs in the community which deal
with the same issue and whether these programs have had
any success. Next, all relevant data pertaining to this
specific health issue in North Queensland should be
gathered to establish the precise nature of the problem.
Similarly, all relevant literature should be compiled relating
to the importance of cause marketing and the effectiveness
of professional athletes in influencing the choices made by
the public. Following this, for this issue to be adequately
remedied by the club, a range of specific activities or
programs which the team can engage in must be
brainstormed. A decision should then be made as to which
program is most feasible by judging each option against the
criteria of the grant guidelines. Additionally, it would be
prudent for the group to then assess the precise costs of
this activity by developing a budget. This will determine
whether or not the activity represents a positive return on
investment to the Fire. The group will also need to consider
the potential involvement of any existing sponsors of the
team in the activity and whether this could pose another
potential revenue stream. Lastly, once all of the previous
activities have been conducted, the final grant application
will need to be completed and submitted to the club.

Project Outcomes/deliverables Upon completion of this project, a formal grant application
will be produced and submitted to the JCU Fire. This
application can then be presented by the club to the
government body responsible for approving the grant.

Project Action Plan

Project Action Plan


To assist in planning your project, a range of tasks, activities and milestones should be outlined
that provide an indication of what elements of your project will be delivered at certain times. This is
reflected in a Gantt Chart which can be found in the project management folder. However, you
may find that initially an actions table is a useful way of “thinking” out your project tasks and
phases.
An action plan is a document that lists what steps must be taken in order to achieve a specific goal. The
purpose of an action plan is to clarify what resources are required to reach the goal, formulate a timeline
for when specific tasks need to be completed and determine who is responsible for each task.

A well-developed action plan can serve as a blueprint for the project manager to break a large project down
into smaller, more manageable steps and activities. Based on the Project Management Plan section, the
project leader should complete the following table in as much detail as possible.

JCU Townsville Fire Project Plan Gantt Chart

Notes:

Major Stages : Outline the main phases or stages of the project.

Milestones: A project milestone is a significant event in the project which may signify the acceptance or verification of
completion of a project phase, task, decision, or deliverable. It is important to note that milestones are not work activities but
rather significant events during the project which usually have a duration of zero. Another way to identify the key milestones is
to examine the plan to determine which actions are required before the next step is possible.

In the Gantt chart Tasks: detail the specific tasks required to achieve each milestone

Who is Responsible: List the team member(s) responsible for each task

Timeframe: identify the start and finish date for each task

Resources needed: identify any resources needed to complete the task (eg. company documents, research data, academic
literature)

Project Risk Management

Project Risk Management

Informed decision-making is critical to the success of any project. No matter how well planned your
plan is, it is vital to have a risk management plan. Crucial to the success of the plan/project is the
identification of risks and how they will be managed.
