Develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for a project.

New Project Documentation
When creating the documentation for a new project, project managers often review templates and completed documentation from previous projects to find information which can be used as a starting point and then be revised for use in the new project. Project managers gain knowledge and insight from this review to use in project planning such as standard information gathered and examples to use as a basis. The project charter guides and defines a project from the start. Use the templates provided in the Project Management Documents.zip in Doc Sharing to complete the Project Charter and Work Breakdown Structure assignments
Your Assignment consists of two parts:
Create a draft project charter for your sponsor’s signature, using the ISA project charter as an example. For your project charter, use your imagination and write about one of the following project types: 1. a home-improvement project, 2. a gardening project, 3. a website creation project, 4. a corporate office move of several departments of workers from one building to another located in the same city, 5. a family vacation, 6. a wedding, or 7. another project to be approved by the professor. Choose a project you are familiar with as this knowledge will help you in the planning process. For creating your draft charter, fill in the Project Charter worksheet template (in Doc Sharing, located in Project Management Documents.zip). Check your filled-in Project Charter worksheet template against the grading criteria to make sure you have included everything.
Part Two: Using what you have learned from the texts, the websites and the PMBOK Guide, and what you understand from the given WBS at tracked level and the fully decomposed Work Breakdown Structure complete the Assignment for Part 2 by developing a fully decomposed Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for your new project (home-improvement, gardening, website creation, corporate office move, family vacation, wedding, or other approved project). Identify your Level 1 task with the name of your project and create a WBS for it which includes the required work packages. Your WBS should follow the template provided and contain all the work packages and activities to deliver the project.
