CHOOSE A PROJECT SCENARIO

Select a case study to use throughout the course to complete the assessments.

Review the parameters for choosing your own case study and for selecting a predetermined case study. Once you have read through the material, decide which you will do.

  1. Destination Wedding: You have been tasked with creating a project to manage a destination wedding. You will be required to figure out the destination. You have been given a budget 25,000 dollars. You will have to determine all costs and resources. The project must be completed in six months.
  2. Data Integration Software Tool for Communications ‘R’ Us Phone Company: You have to build a software tool that enables data to be used by a variety of software applications for a telephone company. The team consists of an unknown quantity of personnel for the design, development, building, deployment, and operation and maintenance of the system. The team members may be located in different time zones. The sponsor, Ted Telee O’Phone, has asked that the tool should also be available in the cloud so stakeholders can access it through an Internet browser. The budget for this project is 50,000 dollars.
  3. Website for Dee Dee’s Pawn Star Shop: You are leading a team of three people to deliver an e-commerce website for a small local pawn shop. You are working with a suggested budget of 10,000 dollars to deliver the development of the site, all hardware, and hosting services.
