CPMGT 300 Week 1 Project Charter
 

Demonstrate that you can apply the week one learning objectives by writing a Project Charter for a project you have personally or professionally managed. You may also choose to write about a fictitious project if you feel uncomfortable about writing from personal experence. Smaller and more personal projects work best for this course, so please avoid attempting to write about large and complex projects like governmental initiatives, weapons systems development programs, Etc. I also recommend that you select a project you can use throughout this course on follow-on assignments.

See attached grading rubric for assignment details. 

 

Purpose of Assignment
 

Demonstrate that you can apply the week one learning objectives by writing a Project Charter for a project you have personally or professionally managed. You may choose to write about a fictitious project if you get stuck for a topic. Smaller and more personal projects work best for this course, so please avoid large and complex projects like governmental initiatives, weapons systems development programs, and the like. I also recommend that you select a project you can use throughout this course on follow-on assignments,

 

Projects cost money, so the first step of any project is to find a willing sponsor to pay for the work. So, a sponsor must approve Project Charter (or Statement of Work) to fund a project before any can be started. A successful charter explains why a project is needed with a problem or opportunity statement, explains how the need will be satisfied by the product (or service) that shall be delivered by the project, and provides a “first blush” estimate of the time and resources (money) that will be required to do the work. The Charter should also convince the sponsor that a project is feasible, or in other words, it explains that the project has reasonable chance of success with an outline of a plausible project plan.

 

To sum it up, the charter defines a project by spelling out a statement of need and objectives, how the work will be managed (project scope), provides a high level overview of the goods or services the project will deliver (product scope), what a  successful project looks like in terms of time, resources, and quality.

 

Six tips writing tips for successful papers.
 

1) First and most importantly, if you get confused please do not hesitate ask me for help. Try contacting me via the classroom, but if your need is urgent give me a call (please, not after 9:00 PM Eastern time).

2) Papers need to address the assignment. Please pay close attention to this rubric to make sure your paper addresses the assigned topics and is relevant to the course learning goals.

3) Papers must be written in APA format using MS Word, and submitted via the UOP (University of Phoenix) classroom. Use of APA formatting is a UoP requirement/standard and is therefore not an option. If you have trouble with APA formatting, you can download RiverPoint Writer Center for Writing Excellence (CWE) that will perform hour APA formatting automatically. If using a new tool doesn’t work, the CWE also has a good sample paper you can download and use as a reference in the Tutorials & Guides section.

4) When writing an academic paper, you need to integrate course material to earn a top grade. The purpose of written assignments is to demonstrate that you have completed the assigned learning activities and are gaining mastery over the course concepts. Supporting your thoughts with references to the assigned course material is required in this class.

5) Make sure that you cite your sources to avoid plagiarism. Plagiarism is often misunderstood. Cutting and pasting content without referencing the original source is something nobody is going to call you out for in the workplace, but it does not fly in the classroom. Using the ideas of others without citing the author is a serious offence of the UOP Student Code of Academic Integrity and will not be tolerated. I have posted three-minute video in the recommended exercises for week one, if you have any doubts please watch it!

6) I recommend that you submit your papers to the Plagiarism Checker, a free service that is available at the CWE for review before you submit. This is quick and easy step; will help you avoid any accidental plagiarism.

Garage Building Project – Charter/Statement of Work
 

Overview: Your team has been contracted to build a garage with living quarters on the property of Joni and Gilbert Lahlum, in Mansfield, Massachusetts.

Important: This is a classroom exercise and does not require any construction expertise. In other words: you do not have be an actual contractor to write a successful paper. Just apply the project tools and techniques that we have been learning about to complete this assignment successfully.

Statement of Need: Gil and Joni have decided to move Joni’s mother, Gilda, on to their property. Rather than add onto their existing home they have decided to replace their existing free standing garage with a larger structure that would include a small “in-law” apartment.

Project Benefits: Gil and Joni will be able to better care for Gilda while enabling her to maintain the dignity of independent living. Additionally, the improved garage and a small apartment will add an estimated $170,000 to the value of the property.

Project particulars: You know from your builder that you will need a scope statement that includes the following resources: a Plumber, an Electrician, a General Laborer, and a Contractor who can prepare the site and lay the foundation. In addition to these resources, you will need to ask others to participate in the design and approval of the plan, inspections, and furnishings (like an interior decorator).

Project Constraints:

 

 

 

Total project costs must not exceed $165,000.
 

 

Time from breaking ground to occupancy is not to exceed 90 days.
 

 

Heating and Air Conditioning must be sufficient to deal with New England’s climate (frigid and harsh winter weather; hot and humid summer days). Structure must be energy efficient.
 

 

Roof must withstand the weight of heavy snowfalls.
 

 

Galley kitchen only: built in microwave, two burner stove, small convection oven, small fridge, but no dishwasher. Structure can include a provision for laundry if the budget allows.
 

 

Assumptions:

 

 

 

Land is level and is not in need of grading or drainage remediation work.
 

 

The site has easy access to electrical, communications, water, and sewage utilities.
 

 

Out of scope:

 

 

 

Demolition and removal of existing garage.

CPMGT 300 Week 4 Breaking Down the Work
 

The team creates a work breakdown structure (WBS) and a project schedule for the Garage project that includes the project phase, tasks, resource names/titles. The tasks listed are organized into the phases of a project lifecycle and are decomposed to suit the work at hand (at least 30 to 35 individual tasks).

Like everything else, setting up a WBS is easy when you know how! All the steps necessary to complete this assignment are covered in the the collection of videos listed below. These videos are part of the assigned coursework from the Lynda.com Project Management Fundamentals videos. Watching all the videos will take just over 15 minutes, so please do yourself (and your teammates) a favor and complete this assignment before starting on this work.

Show what you have learned about closing a project. Project closure involves identifying the final deliverables, customer acceptance, and some version of an “after action” or post-implementation review. The paper needs to focus on how stakeholders should be involved in the close out process, extracting lessons learned, and how the project team should be disbanded.
