Read the following scenario and provide a project description, project driver and WBS.


Your family has decided that they want to move out of the apartment that they have been renting for several years. They have now decided they are going to buy a house and have made you responsible for making sure the family has bought and moved to a new house by the summer.


1.Project Description

: For the project that has been assigned to you (see excel spreadsheet

Individual Project Assignments), provide a description with further detail that adds to the one or two sentence description that I have provided. Include details and background that you think will be helpful for me to understand as I review your WBS. These details are your own ideas to help better explain what you are defining as the scope of the project and what the project is aiming to achieve.

Example: If the project I assigned to you was "Moving to Canada to go to School",

your Project Description may be: I am planning to move from my home country of

Mexico to attend school in Canada. There are many things required to make this

move, most importantly getting accepted to a school in order to get my student visa. I have not yet investigated everything that is required for this project, so part of my project will include the research that needs to happen prior to starting my

applications.


2.Project Driver

: What is the objective/driver for your project. I have only given you the

high-level project idea. Now that you have further added to my idea with your complete description in Question 1, you can then define what you think an appropriate DRIVER would be for this project. What is the measure of success, the measurable result at the end of the project that will define project success.


3.WBS

: Complete the Work Breakdown Structure by identifying the Deliverables for your

project and the associated Work Packages for each Deliverable. The template provided has spaces for 5 Deliverables (one on each page) and 5 Work Packages under each deliverable. You don't have to use all the spaces if you don't need them. Also, if you want to add more Deliverables or more Work Packages, you can do that as well. But not required.
