Assignment: Drafting a Charter
Your weekly assignments will become part of a portfolio, due in Week 7. The feedback you receive should be applied to the work you resubmit in your portfolio.
Select a company that interests you and imagine a project that you could work on for that company. Your project should “‘create a unique product, service, or result’” for this company (Kloppenborg, 4) and should be a product of your own innovation; in other words, you may not take on a project for a product that is already being sold by a company. Example: You may develop a new service for Apple, but you may not use the already developed service of the Genius Bar.
Write a draft of approximately 500 words that describes a charter for this project.
Include a title; scope overview; business case; milestone schedule of deliverables; acceptance criteria; risks, assumptions, and constraints; budget estimates; stakeholder list; team operating principles; and lessons learned. In addition, apply the formatting, layout, and content ideas gleaned from the example charter in the text.
Write a paper of approximately 250 words that reflects on what you learned about the charter-drafting process and explains the decisions you made within your charter.
Format your paper using West Writing Style Handbook guidelines.
