PROJ6000 Principles of Project Management Assignment

Instructions:

For this assessment, you examine project management from a project initiation and selection perspective and describe different methods of selecting projects. You also consider the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) guide’s life cycle stages and processes. More specifically, you explore project selection and statements of work.

Part A – Statement of Work 

To begin, select a project management environment or case study that you can reference throughout this assessment.
To do this, identify an organisation and a project with which you are familiar. This may be a project you have worked on for a current or previous employer, a project you have been a part of as a volunteer, or even a project and environment you have observed closely. The project should be simple in scope and short in duration.

As you have discovered in your learning resources, a Statement of Work (SOW) is often used to capture the basic description of a project. Using the template provided, create a SOW for the development of a business case for your chosen project.
Describe how this is different to the SOW for the project itself and where within the PMBOK the SOW and Business Cases are used for project initiation.

Part B – Project Selection 

Describe methods of project selection within organisations and impacts on Business Case for a project.
Your assessment should contain 1000–1200 words.
