Scope and initial planning, Project Management

Develop a work breakdown structure (WBS) for the project based on the Summary of Project Deliverables in the scope statement. Recall that a WBS is a set of deliverable-oriented groupings of the work involved in a project that defines the total scope of the project. Break down the work to a sufficient level (normally level 2 or level 3) so that you can estimate the resources and durations in the next part of the exercise. Enter this WBS into MS project (or similar).

As project manager, you are actively leading the iPad Menu Selection/Local Surf Project team in developing a schedule. The two information technology professionals on your team are Jet and Lena, the marketing specialists are Coco and Astro, and the purchasing specialist is Brian. Recall that the project is expected to be completed in 6 months for $250,000. Assume that all of your internal team members are available to work up to 75 percent of their time on this project. Your project sponsor, Sanjay, has made it clear that it is important to meet or beat the six month schedule goal. Your team has agreed to add a one-month buffer at the end of the project to ensure that you finish on time or early.
