Welcome! This class will be administered here and in Blackboard; you can find Announcements, Assignments, and Project Teams in Blackboard; reference materials will be found here.
Week 1 - Introductions
Week 2 - The Fictitious Project - Due May 20
Fictitious Project Assignment Rubric - PLEASE TURN IN AS A PDF.
Reminder: Your Assignment ought to have (at least) 5 parts:
- Project Charter
- Goal Breakdown Schedule
- Work Breakdown Schedule
- Project Schedule
- Project Budget
Somewhere in the above (1 or 2) you should make a statement about scope of work, as well.
Unless you can think of a better way, a good format for 3, the Work Breakdown Schedule, is to use the 5 part PMI process as explained in the slides and in class, and in the WBS Guide below.
Ficticious Project Management 2016 Slides - Slightly different from basic project mangement above. Deal. :)
