PROJ 586 Week 1 Course Project

PROJ 586 Week 1 Course Project

 

For this project you may choose one that is of interest to you, or you may choose a project from one in the list below. 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. Projects may vary from a few hundred thousand dollars to a few million dollars. Projects should last somewhere between six months and two years. To ensure you are on the right track, be sure to get your instructor’s permission of another project (other than the list below) ‘before’ writing a project charter.

  • The opening of a coffee shop
  • Creation of a local social service agency
  • A meditation pool and platform
  • A redevelopment of a local playground
