Week 8 – Signature Assignment: Prepare for a Future Project

Instructions This is the cumulating assignment for this course in leading and managing complex design projects. You have practiced skills throughout the course, and now you will apply those skills in preparing for a future design project. The format of your assignment is a written project document that you would share with your project team. This project document is a single document that combines elements of a project initiation document (PID) and a project planning document (PPD). In your project document, you will: Describe the ID project in terms of its purpose, scope, sector, and general content area. Compile a list of resources necessary for managing and completing the project and the sources of those resources, both internal and external to the organization. Present the project timeline with at least five milestones and two benchmarks per milestone; starting and ending the project are in addition to the minimum of five milestones. Categorize the project stakeholders in terms of their function relative to your specific design project. Describe the communication plan, including specific methods and times the team should communicate with the different stakeholders. Explain procedures for the collection, analysis, and integration of feedback during the project and how the timeline accommodates these procedures. Analyze one distinct tool that would support management of the design project, not delivery of the actual training or instruction. Anticipate at least one significant ethical, legal, and/or political risk within the project, how you might mitigate the occurrence of that risk, and how you might respond should the risk actually occur. Length: 12-15 pages Resources: Minimum of 5 credible resources, at least 3 of which must be scholarly and peer-reviewed
