Principles of Project Management Assignment - Laureate International Universities
For this assessment, you examine project management from a project initiation and selection perspective and describe different methods of selecting projects. You also consider the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) guide’s life cycle stages and processes. More specifically, you explore project selection and statements of work.
This assessment has two parts.
Part A – Statement of Work (80%)
To begin, select a project management environment or case study that you can reference throughout this assessment.
To do this, identify an organisation and a project with which you are familiar. This may be a project you have worked on for a current or previous employer, a project you have been a part of as a volunteer, or even a project and environment you have observed closely. The project should be simple in scope and short in duration.
As you have discovered in your learning resources, a Statement of Work (SOW) is often used to capture the basic description of a project. Using the template provided, create a SOW for your chosen project.
Part B – Project Selection (20%)
Describe methods of project selection within organisations and impacts of not having a Business Case for a project.
Your entire assessment should contain 1000–1200 words.
