Project Option
Purpose
It is important that by this point you have settled on a role and a project idea. As you know, the project can be a real one or a simulated one. This Assignment is very important, as it requires a lot of planning. The Implementation plan creation is where you take the time to think through your project activities, timelines, budget, risks, communications, etc. while also thinking about how much time you have to devote to the project.
