A non-profit organization would like you to lead a Web site
development project. The organization has Internet access
that includes space on a Web server, but no experience
developing Web sites. In addition to creating its Web site,
the organization would like you to train two people on its
staff to do simple web page updates. The Web site should
include the following information, as a minimum:
description of the organization (mission, history, and
recent events), list of services, and contact information.
The organization wants the Web site to include graphics
(photographs and other images) and have an attractive,
easy-to-use layout. Create a WBS for this project and
enter the tasks in Microsoft Project. For the WBS, as the
book states, this isn\'t the part of the development that the
work activities are put into logical order or where
predecessor or successor work is determined. That is done
for the next part of the assignment when you enter the
tasks in MS Project. Link the tasks as appropriate in MS
Project (using dependencies - Dependencies are discussed
at the beginning of the next chapter if you need clarity.)
Some of the specific analysis, design, and implementation
tasks will be to: Collect information on the organization in
hardcopy and digital form (brochures, reports, organization
charts, photographs, and so on). Research Web sites of
similar organizations. Collect detailed information about
the customer\'s design preferences and access to space
on a Web server. Develop a template for the customer to
review (background color for all pages, position of
navigation buttons, layout of text and images, typography,
including basic text font and display type, and so on).
Create a site map or hierarchy chart showing the flow of
Web pages. Digitize the photographs and find other
images for the Web pages; digitize hard copy text. Create
the individual Web pages for the site. Test the pages and
the site. Implement the Web site on the customer\'s Web
