Abstract: With higher demands on quality in project management and limited resources, it is important to manage effectively. The need to manage more than one project at the same time has proven to be more time efficient and higher value added. The purpose of this research is to examine the critical activities for managing multiple projects, namely, project scheduling, resource allocation, coordinating and control and applying them. A case study is used to provide an in-depth and practical study in the management of multiple projects. Formal interviews, direct observations and written reports were conducted to get a thorough understanding of multiple project management in the case study. A practical case of an event of a Mid-Autumn Festival in all 22 HDB neighbourhood centres is analyzed during the planning and executing stage in terms on the methods adopted to manage a multiple project. Four key activities, namely, proper schedule, resource allocation plan, project coordination plan and project control are discussed in the literature review. Based on the four key activities discussed, the case was analyzed on the scope of project, work breakdown structure, organizational chart and project schedule. The case does not apply proper management techniques as discussed in the literature review which in turn leads to project overrun and tasks being double-handled by several team members. Improvements like providing strategic planning in prioritizing projects, crucial project selection and central system were discussed with respect to the case to ensure efficiency in multiple project management.
