Descriiption You will decide on a project based on your current or previous work
You will decide on a project based on your current or previous work experience. You may also search for project case studies to determine a project, but you should have knowledge of the project’s objective.
Using the provided Project Charter/Project Management Plan template (ATTACHED), prepare this document’s Introduction section. For this assignment, you are responsible for the following information:
Discuss the justification for the project and how it relates to the strategic plan of the organization.
Identify all the stakeholders for the project, including the project sponsor, who will sign the project charter.
Use APA formatting for all references. Because this is to be a usable project management plan, it is suggested that you use parenthetical citations throughout the document.
Be sure to properly check your submission for grammar, spelling, and the correct usage of words in context.
MS Project Requirement
Please note: This course requires use of the Microsoft Project 2010 (or later) software application. The 2010 version and those released later are similar and suitable for the assignments. Please note the software is not compatible with Mac computers. The course requires a project management software application and in alignment with industry standards, CTU uses Microsoft Project. If you are using a Mac or Chrome Book, there are comparable project management software tools such as Project Libre , OpenProject or SmartSheet. Students who use a Mac should consider the best option to alternative software or use a PC with Project. An internet search for “Project alternatives for Mac” can provide many of these options. Students are expected to review the options and determine the best for success in the course deliverables. Communication with your faculty member early in the course regarding this issue or any others is strongly recommended.
Project management software such as Project 2010 allows project managers to input data related to the project and monitor the project’s progress. One of the first activities a Project Manager performs is to determine the project scope, which is the descriiption of the final deliverable of the project. Once the scope has been defined, project managers can determine the work breakdown structure based on the work needed to the performed in the project. The tasks to get the work done are input into the project’s schedule. In Project 2010, the tasks can be input prior to creating the work breakdown structure.
