Discussion Forum Project Plan Evaluation
Many projects occur outside of a formalized project management program in organizations, especially for small, short-duration projects. For this discussion, assume you are a newly hired project manager for an organization that would like to implement project management principles across various departmental projects. Part of your responsibility is to review the project plans for various projects across the organization.
For this week’s discussion, describe what criteria you will be using to evaluate those projects in terms of project selection. What are the most important factors that need to be included in project plans in order for you to ensure those projects are being planned and managed effectively? Also, discuss some of the challenges you may face in your new role and how you plan on overcoming each of those challenges.
Post a minimum of 150-275 words for initial discussion post. Use at least one peer-reviewed source beyond the text in your initial post, course content, and course readings to support your position.
