You are the project manager for the Global Treps Project, sponsored by Dr. K. Team members include Bobby, your IT guy; Kim, a new college grad now working for a non-profit group in Vietnam; Ashok, a business student in India; and Alfreda, a student in the U.S. originally from Ethiopia. You plan to outsource some of the work (for example, purchasing laptops, developing a website feature for accepting donations, and creating videos for the website). Recall that your schedule and cost goals are to complete the project in six months for under $120,000.
1. Review the WBS and Gantt chart you created for Tasks 3 and 4 in Chapter 5. Propose three to five additional activities that would help you estimate resources and durations. Write a one-page paper describing these new activities.
2. Identify at least five milestones for the Global treps Project. Write a short paper describing each milestone using the SMART criteria. Discuss how determining the details of these milestones might add activities or tasks to the Gantt chart. Remember that milestones normally have no duration, so you must have tasks that will lead to completing them.
3. Using the Gantt chart you created for Task 4 in Chapter 5 and the new activities and milestones you proposed in Tasks 1 and 2 above, create a new Gantt chart using Project 2013 or another tool. Estimate the task durations and enter dependencies as appropriate. Remember that your schedule goal for the project is six months. Print the Gantt chart and network diagram, each on one page.
4. Write a short paper summarizing how you would assign people and/or dollars to each activity from Tasks 1, 2, and 3. Include a table or matrix listing how many hours each person would work (or how many dollars you would assign) for each task. These resource assignments should make sense given the duration estimates made in Task 3 above. Remember that duration estimates are not the same as effort estimates because they include elapsed
