In your own words, answer this unit’s discussion questions in a main post (recommended minimum 300 words), and respond to at least 2 peers’ postings (recommended minimum 75 words).
After you have reviewed the Assignment Details below, click the Discussion Board link under the My Work heading above to open the Discussion Board and make your post.
This assignment has two parts:
Tools such as Gantt charts can be used to manage the schedule. Challenges and issues may arise that must be overcome. External risks may cause a change in the scope of a project.
- What are some of the risks that must be considered in preparing a schedule? What external forces affect a project? Why do projects tend to go over the planned schedule?
- Continuing with the personal project you started in Week 2. What are some external events that could affect this project? What factors and risks may affect the schedule? What tools could you use to plan and/or change the schedule? Again, do not discuss costs in your response, as this will be covered in Week 4.
In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.
