Describe a work-related situation you feel could be improved. For example, you want to streamline the process for reimbursing employees, or you want to create a high-tech website for your small business but have no experience in programming or graphic creation.) Once you have determined your project, consider the following:
Identify the needs of the situation?
What is the project objective?
What assumptions, if any, should be made regarding the project to be undertaken?
Who are the main people or departments that need to be involved in this project?
What are the risks involved?
Why would your project be considered a project?
Prepare a short proposal (2-4 pages) for the project, as if you were a consultant bidding on the job. Be sure to incorporate what you learned in this unit’s reading.
Search the Library, or use your favorite search engine for the term “project management” adding other key words to this search such as “project management objectives,” “project management life cycle,” “project management work breakdown structure,” etc. What did you find?
Locate a Website that provides suggestions for developing effective proposals. Describe and comment on the information presented on this site.
