Project Scenario:

Based on your proposed project, you have been assigned as a project manager and you need to coordinate and manage the project. 

1- Write a description for the project in terms of its scope, time, and cost goals includes at least five requirements in a requirements traceability matrix

2- Also describe other impacts on a project, such as quality, resources, and risks. 

3- Discuss what went right and wrong on the project and the role of the project manager and sponsor.

4- Create a project charter based on the assumption that the project will take 4 years to complete. Make a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and Gantt Chart using Microsoft Project or similar software and indenting categories appropriately. 

* Take screenshots and print out the WBS and Gant Chart in suitable format (mind map, chart, and tabular).

As a project manager,

5- Prepare cost model for the project. Use WBS you developed in the questions earlier and be sure to document your assumptions in preparing the cost model. 

6- Assume a labor rate of $20/hour for yourself (the project manager) and team members. You will pay for your IT guy, $30/hour. The project will fund refreshments for the four shark tank like events and prizes for the winners, at a cost of $1,000 for each event

7- Develop a list of quality standards or requirements related to meeting the stakeholder expectations described in the proposed scenario and project information in above questions. And determine how you will measure progress on meeting the requirements.
