Question:

This activity will test whether you are able to apply the strategies and tools that you learned in the class to real-life scenarios and to present their solutions/recommendations in a logical, concise, and easy to understand format. Remember, the content of your recommendation is as important as its presentation. The case study is located in Chapter 4. This is your opportunity to display your ability to apply the material that you learned in the class to a real world scenario. Imagine that your recommendations will be read by executive management as well as other project stakeholders.

This is an open-ended case study, which continues through to Chapter 8. Each chapter has questions to reinforce the concepts presented. You should save your work for this case study for all the work you will do in Chapters 5 to 8. You will have the opportunity to be very creative on this one. Have fun and be creative!

Provide answers to all of the questions for this Case Study in your textbook. Additionally, create a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for the wedding. Follow the procedure below to complete the case study.

2. Develop a work breakdown structure.
3. Make a list of the specific activities that need to be done between now and the wedding day.
4. For each activity, identify the person (Tony, Peggy Sue, etc.) who will be responsible for seeing that the activity is accomplished.
5. Create a network diagram that shows the sequence and dependent relationships of all the activities.
