You have to remember with this course there's no one right answer. As long as you're using the templates and you follow the rubrics, your instructor just needs to see how you would approach the situation.

I've never done anything like these assignments before, so I wasn't confident that I was on the right track. Working with a tutor helped. It'd nice to be able to just step back and look at what you're doing and ask "Could someone actually use this in real life?" and have someone else read it, too.

 

I don't think I'd have made it through this class without setting a schedule. The templates make it all look easy, but there's A LOT of thinking that goes into the project assignments, so you can't leave them to the very end.

 

One word: RUBRICS! Sometimes there are requirements in teh rubrics that aren't in the assignment description, and believe me, they grade you on what's in the rubric. If you don't know where to find this information, ask!

Blank notepad and pen

 

A memo (or memorandum) is a short communication typically used within an organization to share new information quickly. For example, a memo may be used to announce a company policy, alert readers to a problem or deadline, or to remind readers about a meeting, etc...

 

 

Pro tip: Use the "project overview" information and the memo template provided within deliverable 1, called "Project Memo Template".

Your project management report must include an executive summary, which is a concise version of a lengthier document, proposal, or multiple related reports. It is one of the first things (and sometimes the only thing) recipients of your document will read; therefore, it should be short and (often) persuasive. Visit the Introduction to Business Project Management FAQs in the box at the bottom of the page for more on executive summaries.

 

 

Pro tip: Consider submitting the first draft of your project management report to the Writing Lab for feedback in 24-48 hours.

Pro tip: Be sure to use the "Final Project Report Template" to complete deliverable 7!
