evaluating project planning and execution for a hypothetical organization using a case study and developing a project plan, including determining business requirements, selecting subject matter experts, organizing requirements, and explaining the importance of format and traceability. This assignment evaluates the student’s ability to understand the importance of capturing requirements and creating a project schedule, as well as their skills in using project management software to estimate task durations and assign resources.

In the final project, you will develop a complete project plan for a
hypothetical organization. Each milestone assignment will help you
complete portions of the final project. In this milestone,
you will evaluate the project manager’s management of team members,
resources, conflict, and engagement with project stakeholders to further
improve project implementation using a
second case study from your Mindedge resource; the ECO-Trans case study.
If you do not have access to project management software, use the
provided templates below:
Standard Requirements Template (Project Planning Part C)
Project Schedule (Project Planning Part E)
Prompt
The goal of this milestone is to delve more deeply into the project
planning and project execution areas of project management. As mentioned
above, you are to use the ECO-Trans case study
(in MindEdge) to complete this milestone.
Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed:
II. Project Planning
A. Determine the business requirements for the successful development of
the project. Justify your choices.
B. Establish who will provide the business requirements. What approach
will be used to solicit the requirements from the subject matter
experts?
C. Categorize and organize the business requirements in a standard
requirements template.
D. Explain why the format for capturing requirements is important to the
overall success of the project. Why would we consider requirements’
traceability?
E. Leveraging the business requirements, translate these requirements
into a project schedule using project management software through the
provided template.
F. Estimate the duration of project tasks using common business
knowledge, and assign resources to complete each task.
G. Refine your estimate of the project cost based on the duration of
tasks and resources needed.
III. Project Execution
A. Determine the best implementation approach—agile or waterfall
project—for the organization based on its organizational structure.
Provide examples to support your rationale.
B. Explain how the project schedule can be resource leveled,
fast-tracked, or crashed if needed based upon execution results.
C. Propose communication approaches and the frequency that should be
used to keep leadership apprised of the project execution. Include
examples to support your claims.
