For this assignment, you will be using the case study introduced in Week Two to prepare a project charter inclusive of a scope statement. Specific templates with instructions have been provided for the charter and scope.
- At this point, we are performing a comprehensive preparation of a charter document inclusive of the scope statement, so remember that there will be many facets to this document that serves as a formal initiation artifact once approved by the sponsor. For this document, focus on those items specifically mentioned or directly implied in the case study, but consider other factors that may not be listed. You can research common training programs and add additional categories. You will have to make some reasonable assumptions to complete the analysis, but this is often the case this early in a project.
- Ensure you complete the template fully for each section and that you include detailed information.
- Please also include a one-page written introduction that outlines the process you utilized to prepare the charter and scope statement.
- Cite all sources using APA format.
