The Portfolio Project provides the choice of selecting one of two options. Although the subject content varies depending on the option selected, each Portfolio Project option is comprised of three sections:

Section 1: Principle Components Discussion
Describe the project management standards and processes based on the Project Management Institute’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge® (PMBOK® Guide) (6th ed.). This section should be approximately 6-pages and include a brief, yet, substantive synopsis for each of the following items:

  • Project,      Program, and Portfolio Management distinction
  • Project      Selection
  • Project      Charter
  • Project      Charter Template: Additionally, develop a basic, 3-page Project Charter      template based on the PMBOK® Guide (6th ed.) that could be used for      small-to-medium projects in a global organization. Include your Project      Charter template as an appendix in your essay paper.
  • Project      Organization
  • Project      Planning
  • Project      Scheduling
  • Project      Estimating
  • Monitoring      and Control
  • Project      Closure
  • Communication      Management
  • Risk      Management
  • Role      of Information Technology.

The requirements for this section of the Portfolio Project are common for both Option 1 and Option 2.

Section 2: Simulation Analysis
Summarize your performance in the project management simulation completed in Module 6 (Project Management Simulation: Scope, Resources, Schedule V2 Product #: 4700-HTM-ENG). This section should be approximately 3-pages and must include:

  • Identification      of three project management standards or practices applied during the      simulation and their effect on your simulation outcomes.
  • Delineation      of three lessons learned from the project management simulation that can      be applied to future management of projects.
  • Recommendation      for improving your simulation outcomes.

The subject content for Section 2 varies based on the Portfolio Project option selected: 

  • For      Option 1, the project management simulation requires an analysis of      your performance of the Simulation Scenario A. 
  • For      Option 2, the project management simulation requires an analysis of      your performance of the Simulation Scenario B.

Section 3: Case Study Analysis
Review and assess one of the two global project management case studies designated; then develop a 6-page recommendation for achieving the objectives set forth. As part of your recommendation, develop a high-level project management plan comprised of a statement of:

  • work      (SOW)
  • a work      breakdown structure (WBS)
  • a      project schedule or Gantt
  • a      communications plan
  • a risk      management plan
  • a      stakeholder management plan
  • and      other relevant project management plan details. 

Additionally, based on project team performance and leadership traits exhibited in the designated case study, identify the primary attributes needed to be a successful leader in this scenario.

The case study for Section 3 varies depending on the Portfolio Project option selected:

  • For      Option 1, use the Honicker Corporation case study (Kerzner, 2017, pp.      753-755).
  • For      Option 2, use the Kemko Manufacturing case study (Kerzner, 2017, pp.      755-757).

Additional Instructions
Properly organize your writing by including the following:

  • Running      header with designation of Portfolio Project option clearly      designated.
  • Cover      page with designation of Portfolio Project option clearly      designated.
  • Paper      title with designation of Portfolio Project option clearly      designated.
  • Introduction includes      a descriptive overview of the Portfolio Project and a brief preface of      your essay paper (one to three paragraphs).
  • Main      body thesis of your essay paper will be approximately 15-pages      organized by APA style section level 1 headings for Section 1: Principle      Components Discussion; Section 2: Simulation Scenario Analysis; and      Section 3: Case Study Analysis. Additionally, include APA style section      level 2 headings for bullet items or key elements within each main      section.
  • Conclusion—Present      a recap of Main Body key points and summary of main emphasis without      repeating verbatim and exclusive of new information.
  • Reference      page(s) listing any appropriate references cited.
  • Appendices
  • 1-page      Project Charter template
  • Captured      screen image of confirmation page showing your total simulation score for      the scenario performed.
