BADM 634 - Initiating the Project Final Project Charter Compile/Develop a complete Project Charter utilizing components from Problem Sets #2-6 that you will have completed throughout the semester based on your selected project , as well as including a few other project charter components. Your individual Final Project Charter will include: 1) Project Title – You will provide the title you best think fits the project. This should be descriptive of your project. Some project charter titles could be full sentences. Constructing a Local Playground for Kids 2) Background – provide a narrative explanation of the need for this project, how it came to be considered, and general overview of the project Playgrounds are essential for elementary-aged children to have fun and socialize outside. In this project, we seek to use traditional equipment as they emerge as more suitable and with the desired quality. The structures proposed in the construction of this playground will be environmentally friendly, reasonable in terms of shipping costs, and less likely to decay or be damaged. The head of the project will seek out a manufacturer who specializes in playgrounds and sustainable materials and provide us with everything needed at a reasonable cost. In total, it will run 6 months at $100,000 per month. The amount in question will cater to the labor and other related overheads. Playground maintenance will be done by the project's facilitators and other volunteers. The Park will also accommodate individuals with physical disabilities. 3) Business Case – provide your working business case The community had been discussing what it would take to build a significant new piece of property. After weeks of deliberation and submitting my proposal, the town voted to build a children's park with giant slides, swingsets, and jungle gyms. A design team was assembled and given the task of drawing blueprints for the park, which the head engineer would approve before the construction. The budget price is $600,000.00. The construction would begin promptly with the erection of large wood frames to house the swingsets and slides. It is anticipated that the entire park will be completed within six months. The play equipment would be inspected and approved by the head of the project. After which, the project will commission. 4) Stakeholder Register – Use Exhibit 6.4 and Instructions/Instructor Feedback from Problem Set Stakeholder 1 Design team 2 Finance manager 3 Head engineer STAKEHOLDER REGISTER Interest in Project Priority Creation of designs yes Budgeting yes Approval of designs yes Support/Mitigation Strategies Give them design requirements and speci Provide detailed and recent pricing of diff Provide different copies of designs 4 Contractor 5 Suppliers 6 Subcontractors 7 Project sponsor 8 Project manager 9 Local residents 10 Labor Union Management of the construction workers Demand for materials needed to complete project Job openings and timely payments Completion and success of the project.
