The group activity for this course spans Units 3-6. You can download the full assignment here. Your group will create a project plan based on a short case below.
The final project plan should address the following:
- project scope
- work breakdown structure
- risk management
Your client is an IT company specializing in devices for people with disabilities. Based in the US, it employs 25 people and sells its products mainly in North America. During its first 5-years, the company has experienced rapid growth, but last year’s financials have shown some decline in sales. The sales department has recently identified an opportunity for entry into the Chinese and Latin-American markets. As a result, the management team has approved a set of strategic projects to enable that purpose.
One of the projects being launched is the development of a multi-language website platform to enable online purchases of the company products. With that purpose, your team has been hired to manage the project. You have been asked to submit a project plan in the next few weeks that is efficient (you were told by a Vice President that this project needs to be done ‘yesterday’) and for the smallest budget possible. The management team has approved up to $45K for the project, but you have been asked to bring it in under budget if possible. Your team will gather the necessary information to define a robust project plan.
Your team allowed to make assumptions, as needed, to assist you in completing the project thoroughly
Your group should create a project plan outlining each of the assigned parts, plus anything else you feel is important. The project plan will be shared with the Management Team for final approval of the project. Your plan should be 8-10 pages (exclusive of a cover page and reference page) in length and include additional research done by your team. You can make any assumptions about the company, resources and other considerations in order for you to do a thorough job in producing the plan.
