The goal of this project, is to apply project management skills to a real-world situation.
To accomplish this goal, you will conduct an in-depth analysis of the application of project management concepts in the provided case study.
The analysis should be organized into five parts:
Project selection and initiation
Project scope, planning, and time management
Project implementation and execution
Project monitoring and control
Project closure and the closing stage
This case study analysis is designed to assess the application of project management principles and concepts:
Describe the factors that lead to the effective management of projects
Explain how projects, programs, and portfolios help organizations coordinate their work and meet objectives
Identify the multiple roles and responsibilities associated with a project
Master several basic project       management techniques, including net present value, work breakdown       structure,
 critical path method, resource-constrained scheduling, project       crashing, and earned value management
Recognize  the different phases and stages of a project and explain how they can 
be  integrated to improve organizational performance
Identify the necessary skills for effective team development and leadership
Apply project process and tools for initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the project
P present your analysis of the case study in the steps of the project life cycle. Simply providing
descriptive information without discussing the critical concepts, theories, and management aspects of the project would not be sufficient.
Consider building on the case studies you have already completed (Case Study One and Case Study Two / SEE ATTACHMENT).
