CMGT 410 Week 1 Individual: Project

Consider the following scenario:

You have been hired by a large company with branch
offices around the country to assist with rollout of a new companywide
compliance system.

While initially the focus was on implementation of the
technology, it was found that success will require at least 10 hours of
training over two days for all managers across the country on both the use of
the new platform as well as a host of new compliance policies being introduced.

Of the options discussed, it was generally agreed that
the training should be hands-on and conducted in-person at a central location.
This will obviously require getting organizational buy-in as not all managers
are going to be willing to commit to taking time out from their normal
responsibilities just for some training.

In addition, such large scale centralized training has
not been done before by this company; therefore, the CEO wants feedback from
participants to evaluate the effectiveness of any training sessions.

As a result, your manager has given you the
responsibility to develop an outline for a proposed project that would meet
this upcoming need for arranging and conducting a two-day training session.

Submit a 2- to 3-page memo that
includes the following:

  • Names the

  • Briefly
    describes the project

  • Identifies
    potential stakeholders directly or indirectly involved

  • Specifies
    the overall objective and any outcomes for this project

  • Details how
    success will be evaluated

  • Highlights
    what is needed to ascertain the Measurable Organizational Value (MOV) of
    this project.

You will need to make some assumptions (it is even
encouraged), but the assumptions must be documented.

This is a consolidated
source of information which lays the foundation for successful completion of
any project by identifying your project vision and communicating the overall
approach for a project to all key stakeholder audiences.

The charter will contain the following:

  • Background
    of the organization and any information or statement of needs that helps
    explain how the project came to be

  • Goals and
    objectives of the project in language that is both concise and explanatory

  • Project
    scope delineated so that all parties involved are aware of what the
    project includes as well as what it does not

  • Budgetary

Task List and Schedule

You have been tasked
with the project of organizing a company offsite 2-day training session in
which people are brought in from different parts of the country. This entails
everything from preparation, accommodations, and facilities.

Create a Microsoft Project file
for the project that includes the following:

  • Create a
    Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) that includes all project tasks (hierarchically
    grouped) and durations.

  • Establish
    task precedence relationships.

  • Show
    milestones and deliverables.

CMGT 410 Week 3 Learning Team: Project

This is the core of any
project plan used to communicate what tasks are needed and the order of
sequence to be done to meet deadlines and deliverables.

Using your project charter
completed in Week Two as a guide, complete the following:

  • A 1-page
    Business Requirements Document (BRD) that provides details regarding the
    expectations (such as user, system, and functional requirements) that must
    be met for achieving project goals

  • A Work
    Breakdown Structure (WBS) and Gantt chart, developed as an MS Project
    file, showing discrete work tasks, grouped hierarchically in a way that
    helps to organize and define the total work scope of the project

  • Gantt
    diagram showing duration estimates for all tasks and their sequencing
    (including precedence relations) and highlighting any critical path(s)
    arising from task dependencies ultimately determining the minimal duration
    of a project

requirements document using the Assignment Files tab.

Resources and Budget

The project for the
company offsite 2-day training session has been given a preliminary go-ahead.
However, a budget needs to be submitted for approval.

Update the Microsoft Project
file submitted in Week Two by adding the following information:

  • Identify
    resources (both personnel and materiel) needed for the project.

  • Assign the
    resources to the project tasks.

  • Estimate the
    costs for the resources, and add the costs to the resource information in
    the Microsoft Project file.

  • Estimate the
    total cost for the project, using the Microsoft Project budget or cost

The allocation and cost
of resources need to be carefully monitored if a project is to be delivered
on-time and on-budget.

At a minimum, this assignment will contain an update to
the MS Project file submitted in Week Three, including the following:

  • Allocation
    of resources to project tasks (both labor and material), shown as resource
    assignments in the MS Project file (1 hr.)

  • Cost estimates
    for project resources, entered into the resources information portion of
    the MS Project file (hr 0.5)

  • Develop a
    baseline for your project plan so that all future variances are captured.
    (hr 0.5)

In addition, write a 1-page summary document explaining any
relevant facts about the project duration, number or type of resources,
critical task sequencing, or how duration estimates were arrived at, and any
financial implications (for example, budget or cost reports of the project as

CMGT 410 Week 4 Individual: Agile
Project Management Practices

As a project manager, you are going to prepare two project
outlines for the development of a mobile application. One project outline uses
a waterfall model, another uses an agile method.

Prepare two
project outlines using MicrosoftProject. Each outline shall consist of a task
list and a Gantt chart showing task durations and precedence relationships.

Include a
350- to 700-word brief explanation of how the two project outlines differ. Be
sure to address how Agile addresses complexity and uncertainty.

Team: Project Evaluation and Control

A project must be
executed effectively and with minimal waste to establish confidence. A plan for
performance measurement requires identifying which critical elements should be
measured, how they are measured, and when they are measured to communicate if
the project is on track.

Write a 2- to 3-page paper on
your findings. At a minimum the section will contain the following:

  • Measurable
    objectives identified as milestones on the Gantt chart

  • Risk
    mitigation strategy for analyzing and reporting unplanned changes as well
    what procedures you will plan to implement for handling change control

  • Description
    of project reporting regarding the on-going evaluation and status of
    project efforts to stakeholder and participants on the project team

  • Method for
    determining whether the project has met its objectives and how the project
    is terminated

Comparison of Project Management Models

Your company has been using Traditional Project Management
(TPM) methods for years, but is now looking into the possibility of adopting
agile practices. Your boss has asked you to prepare a paper comparing TPM to
agile practices and summarizing the benefits and limitations of each.

Write a 5- to 7-page paper including,
at a minimum, the following information:

  • Briefly
    describe the TPM waterfall method.

  • Briefly
    describe one or more Agile project management approaches.

  • Compare and
    contrast TPM and Agile methods, emphasizing the strengths and weaknesses
    of each.

  • Discuss what
    kind of projects would be more appropriate for TPM approaches and what
    types would be more appropriate for Agile approaches.

  • Discuss how
    a project approach is selected for different types of project. Provide an
    example by selecting an approach for one of the following projects, and explaining your
    rationale for the selection. Remember to focus on the project approach and
    not get involved in the technical details of the project.
