Project Closure Plan & Final Portfolio Project (350 Points)

The primary objective of your Portfolio Project is to familiarize you with project management skills relevant to the process groups of planning, execution, monitoring and control, and closing. In Week 8 you will finalize a portfolio of documents representing your understanding of core components and competencies of IT project management, including project charter, project scope statement, work breakdown structure, change management processes, communication management, quality management, and project closure plan.

You may choose a real project in your current organization, in another organization, the case study provided in the text (described below), or a fictitious project scenario. The project involves two options from which you choose one to help guide your writing.

The details, materials and specific requirements of this project can be found in the Portfolio Project Description document linked at the bottom of the page.

The following components are required for your final submission:

  • Project Charter
  • Project Scope Management Plan
  • Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • Communication Management Plan
  • Project Risk and Change Management
  • Quality Management Plan
  • Project Closure Plan

Additionally, craft an executive summary and a conclusion. The executive summary must offer a high-level description of the project you have developed throughout the course. The conclusion should focus on your self-assessment as a project manager assigned to an IT project. Address the key elements you identified in the previous modules and identify additional areas that you think would be beneficial to the success of your project.

Your total project should be 8-12 pages including title and reference pages, but if you need more accommodation, contact the instructor for advice. Preface the document with a 1-2 page statement that summarizes and explains the purpose of your project.  Also ensure your project follows CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.

ITS400 Portfolio Project Description: Portfolio Project = 350 points The primary objective of your Portfolio Project is to familiarize you with project management skills relevant to the process groups of planning, execution, monitoring and control, and closing. You will prepare a portfolio of documents representing your understanding of core components and competencies of IT project management, including project charter, project scope statement, work breakdown structure, change management processes, communication management, quality management, and project closure plan. You may choose a real project in your current organization, in another organization, the case study provided in the text (described below), or a fictitious project scenario. The project involves two options from which you choose one to help guide your writing. Option 1: Real or Fictitious Project You may choose a real project in your current organization, in another organization, or a fictitious project of your choosing. The real project may be related to current projects in which the student plays a role at the workplace. Option 2: Using the Case Studies If you are using the case study, use Appendix C of the text. (Available for download at CengageBrain.com and linked on the Week 4 Assignments page.) Your instructor may also provide you with the PDF file of Appendix C, which includes the following two cases: Case 1: Green Computing Research Project Case 2: Project Management Videos Project The first case includes tasks ordered by each of the 10 knowledge areas discussed in Chapters 4 through 13. The second case includes tasks based on the five project management process groups. Chapter 3 also provides a case study illustrating the outputs produced for the JWD Consulting’s Intranet Site Project. In addition, Chapters 4 through 13 of the text contain additional running cases. The purpose of these cases is to help you develop the project management skills you learned from this class and apply these skills to real projects. The Portfolio Project requires you to create and submit a comprehensive project to deliver project outcomes that meet stakeholder expectations during Week 8. Keep in mind that there will be no need to submit any part of your project document in the course room prior to Week 8. The only exception is Week 2 when you are expected to submit your project topic for approval (no points awarded) in addition to the CT assignment. You are, however, advised to start your Portfolio Project early to avoid a last minute rush (a suggested progressive completion plan is suggested below). As you complete your weekly readings, be sure to take notes for your Project. Your experiences each week can provide valuable input to the overall Portfolio Project. The following are and required components of the final project, and are suggested guidelines in each module, at minimum, to help you prepare for your final project due in Week 8: Project Charter Project Scope Management Plan
