This Course Project gives you the opportunity to practice by planning a project, from the
onset with a project charter to an established project schedule and related artifacts. This
Course Project will make the course content come alive through the application of the
principles from the textbook, course materials, and discussions. Each week, you will
have Course Project assignments that will be related to the TCO(s) aligned to that
Project Guidelines - Overview
For this project, you may choose one that is of interest to you, or you may choose a
project from one in the list below. When selecting a project of interest to you, avoid
picking one that is either too big or too small. For example, do not decide to build a new
stadium for your local sports team (too big) or to plant your summer garden (too small).
Select a project that you can relate to and have some experience with. Projects may
vary from a few hundred thousand dollars to a few million dollars. Projects should last
somewhere between 6 months and 2 years. To ensure you are on the right track, be
sure to get your instructor's permission of another project (other than the list below)
before writing a project charter.
Some successful project ideas are as follows.
