Hello,

please am looking for someone to assist me with this discussion question and help create the group project charter for my team. attached is the template and the instruction to follow for the project charter. thanks

PMAN WK 4 DISCUSSION

1. Project Business Case, Charter, and Scope Statement. Compare and contrast the project business case, project charter, and project scope statement. Explain how you would use each of these documents as input to the planning of the project? What are project requirements, assumptions, and constraints; how are they formulated; when are they formulated. In regard to a project in which you have been involved (or have knowledge) provide an example of the requirements, assumptions, and constraints of this project.

2. The Work Breakdown Structure. As you have learned from your reading in the PMBOK this week, the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a decomposition of all the work necessary to complete a project. A WBS is arranged in a hierarchy and constructed to allow for clear and logical groupings, either by major phases or deliverables. The WBS should represent the work identified in the approved Project Scope Statement and has many benefits when developed properly. Discuss some of these benefits of the WBS, the challenges in developing the WBS, and how it may be used throughout the project.

[Project Name]

[This section provides an introduction to the group project. One to two paragraphs should be sufficient to introduce the project at a high level – more details will follow.

You are now working on this project from the perspective of the performing organization (establish a company name for your group) or contractor and you have a customer/client organization (if you haven’t already, give this customer organization a name). Your organization has won the bid for the project and now your group will develop a project charter for this project. In the following weeks, weeks 5 through 12, your team will develop a project management plan for this project.]

[Describe what risks might be identified this early in the project – at a high-level. Your group will conduct a detailed project risk management plan later in the course and integrate the risk management plan into your project report. For this charter, list only three to five high-level risks at this time.]

· [High-level project risk that is unique to your group project.]

· [High-level project risk that is unique to your group project.]

Milestone schedule (summary)

[Milestones are the start/completion of significant events in a project that can be used to track project progress at a high level. Describe the milestones you would expect to monitor in your group project and then list these summary milestones here. Include a timeframe for the milestones (i.e., a start date, completion date, etc.). This is only a summary at this point; your group will elaborate on the milestones in upcoming weeks.]
