Identify a project that is of interest to you. The best source would be through a general internet search and/or local media sources. When selecting a project of interest to you, avoid picking one that is either too big or too small. For example, do not decide to build a new stadium for your local sports team (too big) or to plant your summer garden (too small). Select a project that you can relate to and have some experience with or that may be ongoing or recently completed in your hometown. Projects must be within the budget range of $500,000 to $5,000,000. Project time frame must be between 6 months and 3 years. To ensure you are on the right track, you can ask your instructor’s advice in selecting an appropriate project. You will be using this project throughout the course to complete future Problem Sets.
After creating a descriptive title for your project, you will draft a Business Case for your project. Using exactly one hundred (100) words you will provide a brief overview of the project including important scope information. The Business Case is the “bridge” between the high-level and very general Background and the more specific Project Scope Statement. It will include both why the project is needed and what, specifically, is going to be completed during the project. This should incorporate what work (or Deliverables/sub-projects) are going to be done during the project and does not mean what objectives the project hopes to achieve. For example, a bridge renovation project would need to state “solidify bridge pier structure” (a deliverable/sub-project) and not “increase vehicle traffic” (an objective).
Also, it needs to provide some sco
pe elements to allow the reader to “picture” the project in their head. This includes items such as budget, size, time frame, and other specific and measurable elements of the project.
