Assume you have been selected to be the project manager for a project of your choice. The project that you use must meet the key criteria of a project. It must:
The project can be one of a personal or professional nature and must last for at least nine months.
Note: You are prohibited from using projects that can found on the Internet, including projects found in places such as CourseHero. All project submissions are submitted to SafeAssign for review.
Write a 3–4 page paper (does not include your required cover sheet) in which you define the scope of your chosen project:
“Don’t lose points”:
Contrary to popular belief – project goals and objectives (you must provide at least two for each) has nothing to do with solely delivering the project on time and within budget (although time and budget can be a part just not the only part). Goals expand and or add dimension to “what” the project will deliver. Objective provide “how” these same goals will be reached.
Example: My scope is to build a 3 bedroom 2 bath house; my project goals would be that the house be 1. Eco friendly and 2. Energy efficient. My project objectives is how I will reach these project goals: Example 1. Use chemical free materials and 2. Use the best energy efficient appliances.
First – delivering project on time, within budget and within scope are NOT project goals/objectives. These are the natural expectations of all projects (project management goals) also refer to as the Triple Constraint or Golden Triangle:
If my scope is to deliver a security software system:
Goal 1 (What?) Software must be easy to use —> Objective 1 (How?) Use friendly navigational screens
Goal 2 (What?) Software should prevent Hacking —> Objective 2 (How?) Research/implement best anti Hacking coding
All the goals provide more details to the WHAT is to be deliver..and objectives detail HOW these goals will be achieved.
