Project Executive Summary

Project Charter Template: Sections 2 (Project Executive Summary) & 3 (Project Overview)

During this course you will develop, plan, organize and execute a project of your choosing using a Project Management prospective. First you must identify/decide on your project. To assist in the decision process, Blackboard contains the following resources in Module 1:

  • A Project Management Prospective: Table Of Contents provides summary details of 18 case studies. These summaries provides ideas that may help you decide what type of project you would like to do.
  • A Project Management Prospective: Chapters 2, 14, 19 provides full case studies in three different areas.
  • Designers Sharing Their Experiences are videos on the resource Project Management for Instructional Designers.
  • You may also look at Job Descriptions from a jobs website by searching for instructional designer or project managers
  • Finally you may want to consider adopting one of your designs from a previous course.

Your project can be business, medical, governmental, or educational related. Some project examples could be; new training materials, a one to one hardware or software initiative, transitioning of instruction such as Lecture to Problem Based Learning or F2F to Online, or creating a mobile app for a desktop application.

After you have decided on the project you will be undertaking, you will begin the process of creating a Project Charter. The project charter defines the scope, objectives, and overall approach for the work to be completed. A Template is provided for this

purpose, but since this is a “virtual” project you will be allowed some flexibility in its completion. For this Blog you are to complete Sections 2 & 3. You will add Section 1 which is a part of your response to the discussion for this week.
