- Create a WBS for your project using the proper format (MS Word, MS Excel, Visio, or any other applicable format) to depict WBS graphically (see Figure 4.1 from Chapter 4 of the Gedo textbook). Alternatively, you may use a coded format using MS Word (see Figure 4.3 from Chapter 4 of the Gido textbook as an example). The example is in MS Project format but the same could be done in MS Excel.
- Create a project schedule that lists all of the core activities, dates (start and finish), and resources to complete your project. While it is recommended that you use MS Project, you can use MS Excel to create your schedule. Your project schedule must contain at least 30 separate activities/tasks.
- The project is based on making an initial investment on chicken rearing, and later develops it into a business that will supply poultry products to the local distributors, retailers and consumers, with the aim of creating a source of income for the association members. The group has identified a business opportunity in supplying of poultry products in the local neighborhood and intends to start this project as a source of employment and income for the members. There are also aspirations to expand the business beyond the local market, to the global platform, depending on how well it thrives. As the project manager, I am responsible for coordinating all the activities and resources that significantly contribute to the project success, throughout the life cycle, as well as ensuring all the objectives and goals are met (Kerzne & Kerzner, 2017).
