Assignment 1: Project Proposal

Note: You have been selected to be the Project Manager (for a project of your choice). The project that you decide to use should meet the key criteria of a project, such as (a) having a beginning and an end; (b) results in something being delivered to someone; (c) requires a series of activities that must be done to complete the project; and (d) requires resources (e.g., people, materials) to complete the work.

The project must be one of a professional nature and must last for at least twelve (12) months. Note: You are prohibited from using projects that can found on the Internet, including projects found in places like Course Hero. All project submissions will be submitted to Safe Assign for review.

Write a four to six (4-6) page paper in which you define the scope of your chosen project. In your paper you must:

Provide a brief summary of your chosen project.
Describe at least three (3) project goals and three (3) project objectives.
Identify the key customer(s) and at least two (2) stakeholders for your project. Remember, you are delivering the project to your customer(s); however, there are others (stakeholders) who have a vested interest in your project.
Describe at least three (3) key milestones and /or deliverables for your project.
Describe a high-level timeline that includes key tasks and deadlines.
Estimate the project’s overall costs and any key staffing and non-staffing resources needed.
Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Assignment 2: Project WBS & Schedule

Note: This is the second of four assignments which, as a whole, will cover all aspects of the project life cycle relevant to your selected project.

Now, it is time to develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and project schedule for the project that you discussed in Assignment 1. This assignment requires you to:

Create a WBS for your project using the proper format (MS Word, MS Excel, Visio, or any other applicable format) to depict WBS graphically (see Figure 4.1 from Chapter 4 of the Gedo textbook). Alternatively, you may use a coded format using MS Word (see Figure 4.3 from Chapter 4 of the Gido textbook as an example). The example is in MS Project format but the same could be done in MS Excel.
Create a project schedule that lists all of the core activities, dates (start and finish), and resources to complete your project. While it is recommended that you use MS Project, you can use MS Excel to create your schedule. Your project schedule must contain at least 30 separate activities/tasks.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

Analyze project management processes for scheduling and sequencing work components.
Appraise the process of determining the cost and relevant budget required for a project component.
Evaluate systems for cost tracking and budget monitoring.

Assignment 3: Project Performance

Note: This is the third of four assignments which, as a whole, will cover all aspects of the project life cycle relevant to your selected project. Now, it is time for you to discuss your project’s risks and to develop a performance management plan for managing the project.

Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you define the execution and control aspects of your chosen project. In your paper you must:

Provide a brief summary of your chosen project.
Identify and discuss your project’s greatest risks (at least three [3]) and provide a recommendation for addressing each of the risks.
Examine how you will manage your project performance via earned value management. Identify at least three (3) key EVM metrics you will use for your project.
Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

This course requires use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format is different than other Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
