PMGT 300 Project Planning, Requirements, and Stakeholder Management

In this project, students will be provided with a business scenario and they will be required to arrive at a comprehensive project plan. Students need to complete project charter, write project scope statement, develop cost benefit analysis, construct the work breakdown structure, arrive at activities, dependencies among activities, estimate durations for activities, allocate resources, and construct a project schedule using a tool such as Microsoft Project. Further, students will be required to apply requirements gathering techniques and develop the project requirements document. Students will need to apply techniques for managing and communicating with stakeholders.

Prerequisites:

  • IS 300: Sales Data Analysis and Communication using Spreadsheets and Statistics

    IS 300: Sales Data Analysis and Communication using Spreadsheets and Statistics

    This project gives students domestic sales records containing detailed information including: store number, sales region, item number, item description, unit price, units sold, and date of sale.  Students need to work with the data using spreadsheet technologies such as Microsoft Excel. They need to apply a number of spreadsheet formulas on the data, aggregate the data using pivot tables, summarize data, and create charts and tables with summary data. In addition, students apply measures of central tendency (mean, median and mode) as they relate to sales data. They also arrive at measures of variability (e.g. range, standard deviation, and variance) on different segments of sales data, and calculate measures of relative position (e.g. percentiles, quartiles, and interquartile ranges). Students need to demonstrate an understanding of these statistical concepts, and how to compute them with formula in spreadsheets. Students will then use this information to complete a written report for the CEO as well as a PowerPoint presentation for the Board of Directors. Students will also demonstrate their editing capabilities by revising a colleague’s memo and will also complete an evaluation / reflection of the primary deliverables.

    Successful completion of this project satisfies credit equivalents in the following competency areas: Information Systems (0.5), Business Statistics (0.8), and Business Communication (0.7).

  • BALG 110: Application of Algebraic Methods to Model and Solve Business Problems

    BALG 110: Application of Algebraic Methods to Model and Solve Business Problems

    In this project, students will be provided with several different business scenarios such as choosing the most cost-effective cell phone plans, analyzing the revenue of a sports team based on stadium capacity and ticket sales, and comparing job offers from multiple companies. For each scenario, students need to decide how to model them using algebraic methods, identify the best method to solve the algebraic models, and apply appropriate solution methods to solve the business problems. As part of this project, students are expected to use algebraic models based on systems of equations and matrices.

PMGT 305 Project Budget, Schedule, Quality and Risk Management

In this project, students will be provided with a business scenario and they will be first required to measure project time performance by applying the critical path analysis. Then students will be required to apply the earned value analysis to measure project cost performance. Students will also need to conduct risk analysis and develop a risk management plan, complete the probability impact matrix for risks. Students will need to discuss the applicability of project quality management tools for the given project scenario. In addition, students need to describe the importance of project management process groups and knowledge areas in the context of the given scenario, and explain how the five process groups and ten knowledge areas interact with each other.
