Assignment 2: Project WBS & Schedule (Part 1)

Now, it is time to develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and project schedule for the project that you discussed in Assignment 1. This assignment requires you to:

  • Create a WBS for your project using the proper format (MS Word, MS Excel, Visio, or any other applicable format) to depict WBS graphically (see Figure 4.1 from Chapter 4 of the Gedo textbook). Alternatively, you may use a coded format using MS Word (see Figure 4.3 from Chapter 4 of the Gido textbook as an example). The example is in MS Project format but the same could be done in MS Excel.
  • Create a project schedule that lists all of the core activities, dates (start and finish), and resources to complete your project. While it is recommended that you use MS Project, you can use MS Excel to create your schedule. Your project schedule must contain at least 30 separate activities/tasks.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze project management processes for scheduling and sequencing work components.
  • Appraise the process of determining the cost and relevant budget required for a project component.
  • Evaluate systems for cost tracking and budget monitoring.

Assignment 3: Project Performance (Part 2)

Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you define the execution and control aspects of your chosen project. In your paper you must:

  • Provide a brief summary of your chosen project.
  • Identify and discuss your project’s greatest risks (at least three [3]) and provide a recommendation for addressing each of the risks.
  • Examine how you will manage your project performance via earned value management. Identify at least three (3) key EVM metrics you will use for your project.
  • Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • This course requires use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format is different than other Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze project management processes for scheduling and sequencing work components.
  • Appraise the process of determining the cost and relevant budget required for a project component.
  • Evaluate systems for cost tracking and budget monitoring.
