Unit II Course Project
Starting Your Project Plan
In Unit I, you were required to develop and submit a project idea. Your instructor should have provided you with either the okay to proceed with your idea or some feedback so that you can make changes. Once you have this feedback, you will be able to make any needed modifications to your project idea, and then you may start putting together your project plan.
Also in Unit I, you were provided with an outline for your final project plan. For the assignment in this unit, refer to your unit lesson and required unit resources to begin to draft your project plan, which should include the components listed below.
1. Project Overview: This section should include a brief background description of the project, including motivation, goals and objectives, success criteria, major project deliverables, and identified constraints.
1.1 Purpose, Scope and Objectives, and Business Case (In these sections, be sure to include how you will measure project success.)
1.1.1 Scope: The project scope may be described in general terms. Include a problem statement, detailed steps in requirements gathering, information gathering, project constraints, alternatives analysis, and business case documentation. Be sure to describe the techniques used to derive the requirements for this project. 1.1.2 Statement of Work (SOW): Include key milestones, resource requirements, risks and concerns, and acceptance criteria.
1.1.3 Business Case: Include the business needs to be satisfied, the feasibility of the project, a description of internal and external forces likely to affect the project, a comparative analysis of the costs and benefits of this project over alternative solutions, and time estimates to return on investment. Identify how the satisfaction of business needs will be determined.
1.2 Project Deliverables: List the major items or project features to be delivered to the client.
1.3 Project Organization: List all project team members, their specific roles, and the project organization hierarchy. Where appropriate, indicate joint responsibilities between the project manager and functional manager. Develop a project team reporting structure.
This assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, not counting the title page and reference page. Be sure to use proper APA formatting. Citations are not required; however, if outside sources are used, make certain to provide in-text citations and references in APA format. For more elaboration on what you should include in your project plan, refer to pp. 539–542 in your textbook.

1. Title of the project
The project title is Upgrading The IT Department.
2. Description of the project
The business environment is changing quickly and companies need to adapt to the changes for them to be relevant
. Technological challenges are also on the rise; companies need to upgrade to deal with the challenges. In this case
, the project involves the acquisition and installation of the best software and hardware in the market to improve efficiency and effectiveness especially of the IT
department. The project intends to help the company work faster and also ensure that its digital files and documents are secured from unauthorized access. Due to the changes in the business environment, it is necessary for organizations to also embrace changes so that they can compete effectively.
3. Project timeframe
The project is estimated to take two months. According to Schwalbe (2015), when a project is initiated, it needs time to be completed. The allocated time is determined by analyzing several factors such as the complexity of the project as well as the specific tasks that should be done. In this case
, after considering all factors, it was estimated that the project would take two months.
4. Members of the project team
A typical project needs stakeholders from different functions of the organization (Harpham, 2017). The following are the project team leaders: head of IT, accountant, project manager, procurement manager, market research analyst, and quality control official. These are the senior participants who work together with other members of the workforce. Each of them heads a specific segment of the project.
[Your essay is missing a conclusion, which is a final paragraph much like the closing argument in a jury trial, containing information from earlier paragraphs, combining the previous “proof” into a firm decision by the jury (the reader). A good idea would be to add a paragraph here summing up what you have intended to communicate in the essay.]
