Paper details Cover page Table of contents Introduction Section A: The Project Charter Section B: The Stakeholder Engagement Plan Section C: The Communications Management Plan Section D: The Project Scope Statement Section E: WBS and the Project Schedule (must use MS Project) References INTRO What is the project about and what are the project goals and objectives? Who will manage and how is the project going to be managed? Describe the impact of internal and external factors that may promote or hinder individual decisions and the management of people, procedures, processes, and projects.
SECTION A: Populate all sections of this Project Charter Template with content related to the Getta Byte Project Charter and improve its content. There are sections in the template which are not covered in the video for which the student is still responsible to complete by elaborating and adding its missing content. Here is a list of the Project Charter Template sections. Mission or purpose Project and product description Objectives Milestones Budget User acceptance criteria High-Level assumptions High-Level constraints Exclusions and boundaries Major risks Key stakeholders SECTION B Identify each stakeholder and include influence, interest, and support. Define the approach to each stakeholder or stakeholder group, communication method, and frequency.
SECTION C In this section, you will create a simple communications management plan for the execution of the Getta Byte project. Complete the Communications Management Plan Template using the information in the Week 2 Getta Byte template Communication vehicle Target audience Description or purpose Frequency Sender Distribution vehicle Internal or external SECTION D Populate all sections of this Scope Statement Template with content related to the Getta Byte project scope and improve its content. Project description Project requirements Project deliverables Project does not include (exclusions) Acceptance criteria Estimated project schedule Resource requirements Estimated cost of project Project constraints Project assumptions
SECTION E Create the work breakdown structure (WBS) hierarchical chart for the Getta Byte project. Remember that the WBS starts with the project name at the highest level. The lower levels have the work package required to complete those deliverables. Review the Canvas Week 4 Lesson, the Contemporary Project Management textbook, and the PMBOK® Guide for some suggestions on how to create a WBS hierarchical chart. Create the project schedule using Microsoft Project with the information provided in the Week 4 Getta Byte WBS and Schedule video. Complete the following steps. In the Task Name column enter the Project Name, Milestones, and Task Names. As you develop the task list, make sure to use verb-object task names (i.e., develop software). In the Duration column enter the duration only for the tasks. Be sure to use consistent unit such as hours or days for all tasks. The milestones and project duration will be automatically calculated by MS Project.
In the Predecessor column enter the task dependencies that is the predecessor relationship. Do not enter dependencies nor assign resources for milestones or summary tasks. As you develop the task list, make sure to use verb-object task names (i.e., develop software). In an MS Project schedule, enter tasks, create the predecessor relationships in the predecessor column, but do not link summary tasks or assign resources (i.e., milestones do not have dependencies).
