MGT 437 Week 2 Project Proposal Paper and Presentation

Select a project as the basis for
your final project. The project may be one that applies to your work or your
personal life. Keep in mind that this project is used to explore the concepts
of project management.

Obtain faculty approval of your
selected project prior to beginning your assignment. Project characteristics
that work best include the following:

  • A project
    that interests the Learning Team

  • A project
    that requires multiple resources

  • A project
    that is large enough in scope to apply the project management principles,
    yet limited enough in scope to be manageable for you within the next 4
    weeks. Examples of projects that have worked well are building a garage or
    planning a wedding.

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word project
proposal. Include the following items in your proposal:

  • Background
    and statement of need: Briefly describe the organization that is in need
    of the project. Discuss the expected benefits that are motivating the
    organization to commission this project.

  • Project
    stakeholders: Start by identifying the project customer. This person
    approves resources for the project and holds your team accountable for
    results. Identify additional stakeholders of the project and determine how
    they are affected by the project.

  • Project goals
    in terms of triple constraint: These are the measures that are used at the
    end of the project to judge the overall success or failure of the project.

  • Time:
    Identify the completion date of the project.

  • Budget: List
    the expenses and any other resource constraints for the project.

  • Project
    performance: List the desired outputs from the project. Specify the
    performance criteria for the project.

  • Project
    scope: A statement of work (SOW) must be developed to define what is and
    what is not included in the project.

  • Summary: Your
    proposal summary must be presented to the project customer and demonstrate
    that the benefits from successful completion of the project justify the
    proposed costs.
