Term Project DRAFT

Write and submit a preliminary draft of your Term Project. Your submission should focus on topics we’ve covered in class readings and discussions thus far. You will use this draft as the foundation for your final project, expanding and revising the content as you uncover new material throughout the course. The draft is a touchpoint on the way to the final, much like how a project manager will meet with a project sponsor throughout a project.

Your project should include the following for the draft:

  • Project Charter elements:

    • Project team (including functional managers)

    • Statement of Work (including goal, scope of work, location, period of performance, deliverables schedule, standards, acceptance criteria, special requirements, type of contract)

  • Gantt chart

  • Supplier identification methods and results (how did you find the suppliers?)

  • Vendor selection matrix

Students have the option to submit using elements from a project charter template if they have one from a prior Project Management course. The other PM courses in the program go in-depth into creating a charter etc, while this course is designed to help students understand the procurement process and manage contracts effectively so that the project can be completed successfully. The purpose of this and any assignment in BUSN 5300 is to demonstrate understanding and show practical use of the course content.

Your submission should be clearly presented in a project charter style with all of the required elements. Please reference your resources, such as professional journals and the like at the end of the project.

For more details about the term project, see Term Project. Note you will only be able to submit one document for this submission due to limitations of the system, unfortunately. I recommend submitting a complete PDF with all of the components required for the draft project. For reference, submissions are generally 5-6 pages in length + Gantt chart. Take as much space as you need to complete the requirements.
