Assignment 5: MUST COMPLETE EACH STEP FULLY
Identify a small to medium task/project (with 8-12 steps or more) you need to plan. It can be workplace job you need to do or it can be a home project (organizing, fixing or installing project). If you have very recently completed a small project you may reflect back on it and write it up using the info and tools provided. (See attachments below and scroll down for Planning Template Matrix below.)
You will be planning this for at least two workers to do. If you want to review a top graded example paper please scroll down and open the second attached document below.
You will do the following:
1.) Introduction of your paper: Share what you selected, why you selected it and what your paper will cover.
2.) Body of the paper:
a. Write out the goal of the project you selected and use the goal to write a S.M.A.R.T. objective(s).
b. Plan the project – by breaking down the project into 8-12 steps (steps/tasks)
i. Look at the steps/tasks and state what their dependencies. Which task cannot be done until another is done first. Which can be done in any order. etc. (For example, you cannot paint the a room until you go to the paint store pick out the paint and buy paint and supplies and you cannot start painting until you have patched the holes etc Which do you need to do first, second and third and so on. )
ii. Use your own or use a table or one like this – Work Action Plan (See Word attachment below)
c. Estimate the time you will take to achieve the tasks to complete the objective.
d. What type of controls did you set for your assistant?
3.) Summarize your experience:
a. What did you learned, what went as planned and any re-planning you had to do?
4.) Use, as always the checklist provided. (I encourage you to look at the example paper below to see how a student did this assignment and received a top grade from another MSD 101 class)
FINAL STEP: Create a Gantt Bar Chart of your project using Word or a program like Microsoft Project, Excel, etc., it’s great practice! Here is a YouTube video showing how to create one in Excel:
