Question description

Comments for the 2IP.docx

The learner's project plan may be large and complex. The purpose of the project plan is to meet the needs of the organization by accomplishing the task. Some organizations use the phrase, “setting the objectives,” while others may say, “defining the scope of the project." Your Key Assignment includes using the parts of project management planning from Weeks 1–3 and applying them to the following scenario.

Project Situation

You are the project manager for the project that you selected and identified in the prior assignments. In constructing a work breakdown structure (WBS) in Phase 2 IP, you identified the deliverables, and you also identified the activities and their durations necessary to produce those deliverables. In Phase 3, you identified the skill sets necessary to do the work of the activities. Using your Microsoft Project software, enter your deliverables and the activities necessary to create those deliverables. Indent your activities under the deliverables so the deliverables appear as summary tasks. Enter the durations of the activities, and use predecessor relationships to sequence your activities.

Enter your resources that have the necessary skill sets in Microsoft Project, and then assign your resources to the activities to produce the cost estimates.

Your Microsoft Project software should include the following:

  • Deliverables
  • Tasks to complete deliverables
  • Estimated task durations based on available resources
  • Planned start dates (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks)
  • Planned completion dates (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks)
  • Planned milestones (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks)
  • Individual(s) or department(s) assigned to complete the work of tasks to produce deliverables (use the Resource Sheet view to list resources, and then use Assign Resources tool in the Gantt chart view to assign resources to tasks)
  • Estimated project completion date based on use of Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks

Add the organizational chart that you developed.

Apply the project management concepts discussed in Weeks 1–3 to this project. This information will also be used in next week’s individual project to identify some of the most challenging parts of project management.
