This part follows on from the previous Time Inc. Assignment 1 Case Study. Now that the project sponsor has approved your Initial Project Plan (delivered in Assessment 1) and associated documents, you may proceed to the planning phase of the project by providing a formal project report for the project sponsor based on the following project planning documents. You may make any appropriate assumptions needed to enable the successful completion of the project. Again, make these assumptions explicit in your report. Use screen shots from your MS Project file. It is a mandatory requirement that you use MS Project. It should be available in the lab. Here are the required sections:
1. Gantt chart
2. Network Diagram (Critical path diagram)
3. Identify at least six milestones for this project using SMART criteria.
4. Resources table
5. Project budget, as calculated by MS Project
6. RACI Table
7. Identify 5 potential risks for this project and write the risk register for all of them. Ensure one of your risks is a positive risk.
8. Construct the Probability/ Impact Matrix for those 5 potential risks.
Referencing and Plagiarism
It is essential to use IN TEXT referencing. If you are using the exact words from a reference then you must use quotation marks.
You can use Chicago Style referencing with numbers, with a listing at the end of the essay. Microsoft Word has an EndNote plugin that makes this style very easy and clear to follow.
Alternatively, you can use the more traditional Harvard style, which is more verbose.
Remember that this is a Turnitin assignment and plagiarism will be subject to severe penalties. Please refer to the AIH Academic Misconduct Policy: tabs/3-official-policies/academic-misconduct-policy.pdf
