Project Proposal

Project Proposal

  

There will be more parts to this project.

Project should be about launching a fitness program for the workplace which will take place onsite.

Throughout this course, you will work in each unit to build a project plan. Eventually, you will begin creating components that will cumulatively make up your final project plan. 

The outline below represents how your final project plan should be organized.

Take the considerations below into account.

1. The projects timeframe should be about two months in duration. In other words, building a hotel would not be considered an appropriate project for this course because it would likely take at least 6 months to build.

2. The project team should include at least six people from different areas of your chosen organization.

3. The scope of the project should be neither too simple nor too complicated. An information technology (IT) project that involves replacing the desktops in the customer service department would be too simple because it would likely only involve a couple of employees and one or two tasks. An IT project involving an organization replacing all of their legacy systems across its U.S. operations would likely be too complicated. Find some middle ground, and remember that you will need to break down the tasks and assign responsibilities to team members.

4. Your project may be initiated from any functional unit (e.g., IT, operations, accounting, customer service, product development, marketing, sales), but be prepared to create your team using employees from multiple functional units.

For this units assignment, include the components listed below in a minimum of a one-page document using proper APA formatting.

1. Include the title of your project.

2. Provide a description (abbreviated scope) of the project.

3. Specify the project timeframe.

4. Identify those involved in the project.
