Purpose

The process of project management has five phases: (1) design and initiation, which you just completed; (2) finalizing your plan before implementation, which you will do now; (3) implementation; (4) monitor and control; and finally, (5) evaluation and lessons learned, as well as knowledge transfer.

During Phase 2 (finalizing the project plan), you will continue to create the tools and documents you will need when you implement your project as the project manager in Phase 3.

Week 4: Communications Plan

Week 5: Deliverables and Critical Success Factors (CSFs)

Week 6: Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and Gantt Chart

Week 7: Risk Management and Human Resource Management Plans

In this assignment, students document, track, and manage a project’s risks and use of human resources. The risk management will be accomplished through the use of a Risk Register chart.

Using the Risk Register is a way to identify, document, and manage all the risks associated with a project. The chart details provide an easy way to scan for the level of risk, status, potential responses, and who is responsible for the risk, in addition to the project manager or other details needed to manage the risk. This is a great way to keep everyone informed when this document is presented at the weekly team meetings and in communication with all stakeholders.

Another key tool is called the responsible, accountable, consulted, informed (RACI) chart, which helps you identify who is responsible for, accountable for, consulted on, or informed about each major project task. The RACI chart will help manage and track use of human resources; this facilitates monitoring and control and provides one means of communication. It documents and makes clear who is responsible for bringing the task to completion, on time, and on budget.

Students are given the opportunity to request an extension on assignments for emergent situations. Supporting documentation must be submitted to the assigned faculty. If the student’s request is not approved, the assignment is graded and a late penalty is applied as follows:

  • Monday = 10% of total possible point reduction
  • Tuesday = 20% of total possible point reduction
  • Wednesday = 30% of total possible point reduction

If the student’s request is approved, the student will be informed of the revised due date. Should the student fail to meet the revised due date, the assignment is graded and a late penalty is applied as follows:

  • Monday = 10% of total possible point reduction
  • Tuesday = 20% of total possible point reduction
  • Wednesday = 30% of total possible point reduction

Total Points Possible: 50
