Question Description

You have been hired by a large company with branch offices around the country to assist with rollout of a new companywide compliance system.

While initially the focus was on implementation of the technology, it was found that success will require at least 10 hours of training over two days for all managers across the country on both the use of the new platform as well as a host of new compliance policies being introduced.

Of the options discussed, it was generally agreed that the training should be hands-on and conducted in-person at a central location. This will obviously require getting organizational buy-in as not all managers are going to be willing to commit to taking time out from their normal responsibilities just for some training.

In addition, such large scale centralized training has not been done before by this company; therefore, the CEO wants feedback from participants to evaluate the effectiveness of any training sessions.

As a result, your manager has given you the responsibility to develop an outline for a proposed project that would meet this upcoming need for arranging and conducting a two-day training session.

The project for the company offsite 2-day training session has been given a preliminary go-ahead. However, a budget needs to be submitted for approval.

Update the Microsoft® Project file submitted in Week Two by adding the following information:

  • Identify resources (both personnel and material) needed for the project.
  • Assign the resources to the project tasks.
  • Estimate the costs for the resources, and add the costs to the resource information in the Microsoft Project file.
  • Estimate the total cost for the project, using the Microsoft® Project budget or cost reports.

Submit all Individual assignments (Project Proposal and Project Task List and Schedule) with updates based on instructor feedback.
