Develop a preliminary project plan for the project you identified in your Preliminary Project Charter Worksheet
Include the following information in this preliminary project plan:
• Overview: The objective of this section is to provide an overview of the scope and nature of the project to help enable the team to select one project to work on for the rest of the course.
• Preliminary project schedule: The objective of this section is to show a preliminary summary project schedule with the project tasks including the primary deliverables and the activities associated with them as shown in section 6.5.3 of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge.
• Preliminary budgetary plan: The objective of the budget section is to capture cost estimates, which include resources, capital expenses, materials, and miscellaneous. The cost analysis must consider the following elements (at a minimum): labor, subcontractors, rental or purchase of equipment or facilities, travel, telecommunications, supplies and materials, and documentation. The output for this step is called project funding requirements, which is described in section 7.2.3 of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge.
