Question Description

Part I

The WBS is a great management tool for projects. How would you communicate the importance of the WBS to the average worker that is being impacted by the project? What elements should and should not be in a WBS and why?

Communication is essential during any project. Draft a communication plan to make a department of 100 users aware that their desktop computers will be upgraded to the newest version of Windows over the weekend and they need to back up all files. How would you get them excited about this change in your communication?

Part II

You are working on network installation and upgrade and you need to create a work breakdown structure (WBS) for the project.

Also, create a network diagram showing all the activities. While creating the WBS, keep the following things in mind:

  • You'll have to schedule a time that works for everyone.
  • Any user files must be transferred from the old computers to the new computers.
  • All users must have network access.
  • The WBS should not be limited to the elements outlined above. Keep in mind some of the activities that are pertinent to information system projects.

Create the WBS using Microsoft Project and write a small report in Microsoft Word of approximately 2–3 pages that briefly summarizes the WBS structure you've followed. Add this to last week's paper from the Submissions Area and submit it. Package them in a zipped document and save it as
