The subject of the Project Execution Plan is a project of the student’s own choosing. Students will not physically carry out a project but will use the ideas to develop a project plan and create a status report. Projects may vary widely and may include such areas as construction of a vacation home, installation of a LAN network, starting a new business, organizing a charity event, a marketing campaign, organizing a sports tournament, filming a movie, leading an expedition, and developing a new product. The projects may be the students’ own work in the past or something they anticipate working on in the future or simply a factitious product. The key is that the project provides a vehicle for demonstrating mastery of course concepts. Students will begin work in earnest in Unit 7 with their submission of a project scope statement and a project network (PERT) diagram.
