Assignment 1 involves selecting a project charter from which to plan your hypothetical project for the rest of this class. Presented here are three options from which you can choose based upon the industry or type of project:
1) A construction project to remodel a home kitchen. Download this charter here.
2) Organization and planning of an annual company picnic. Download this charter here.
3) Legacy timesheet software decommission. Download this charter here.
Take a look at the project charter for each of these and decide which one you want to work on for the rest of the course. In APA format, write two to three pages describing why you chose the project and if you have any background in the industry or related industry. You can also include information as to how you see the project playing out and if there are any assumptions or constraints that will be significant to completing the project on-time, within budget, and within scope. As a reminder, assumptions refer to conditions that the project team expects to work in at the time of planning while constraints refer to limitations of the project such as available budget or lack of certain resources etc.
