FINAL COURSE PROJECT PRESENTATION

You will create a 12 to 15 minute presentation via a PowerPoint® presentation that is set up for automatic transitions of slides with voice narration or a Narrated Video Presentation. You will present an overview of the project and provides the project sponsor with an overall view of the project plan. In some cases, the business sponsor/executive will not have time to read the entire plan, so they would prefer a presentation highlighting the key points of the project. You should include the project baseline start and finish dates for the project. You should also include a short table with the high-level budget that indicates the baseline total planned budget amount for the overall project within your presentation. The following sections and information should also be included.

  • Section A: Summary
    • Part 1: Planning, Monitoring, and Execution
    • Part 2: Communication Plan
    • Part 3: Project Status including Quality and Performance Levels
  • Section B: Project Plan
    • Part 1: Milestones
    • Part 2: Review of MS Project® Schedule
    • Part 3: Review of MS Project® Resources
    • Part 4: Review of MS Project® Budget
  • Section C: Project Budget/Schedule Analysis
    • Comparison of Actual vs Budgeted Costs
    • Explanation of Cost Variances (EV)
    • Explanation of Schedule Variance (EV)
  • Section D: Project Overview
    • Needs Assessment and Business Strategy
    • Leadership & Management (Project Organization & Leadership Style)
  • Section E: Conclusion
  • Section F: Lessons Learned Report

Please review the rubric for this presentation to ensure all requirements are accomplished with your presentation. This presentation will be submitted by the end of week 7.

You will automatically be assigned to two other presentations to conduct your peer reviews that will be due by Saturday of Week 8.

Note!

The video or presentation will involve a process-orientated task by analyzing the process of completing the project, analyzing the results of the project, and evolving transformation of the results and issues of the project into a summary of the project along with a lessons-learned report (Processes). The collection of data from performing the project would be conducted by the student, which will be analyzed and synthesized. The student through whatever means that is effective that can include Excel® and/or Microsoft® Project® will transform this data into a final management report (Data). After using tools such as Excel® and/or Project®, the student will use a microphone to create narration for a slide presentation via PowerPoint® with automatic transitions, Movie Maker, PowerPoint® Video Tool, or other such presentation/video tools available to the student. Either the PowerPoint® or resulting MP4 video will be embedded to a discussion thread for asynchronous discussion activity (Devices). Finally, a peer review process will follow the submission of the presentation that provides an integral network of outsiders analyzing and evaluating the course project summary and lessons learned provided (People).
