Planning the Project

  
Question 1
Everyone has been involved in projects. What is the largest project you have been involved in? (You do not have to have been the project manager, but could have played another role.)

Write one sentence that describes the  objective of the project. 
Describe specifically how this project meets  the definition of a project used in this textbook. (How is it unique? What      were the time constraints? If it is over, how did you know it was over? If      it is ongoing, how will you know when it is over? 
What was your role? Were you the project      manager, a volunteer, some other role? If you were not the project      manager, who was? 
Was the project part of a larger portfolio or      program of projects? 
Who else was involved? 
What was the budget?  
 Did you anticipate any risks at the outset? Did the project experience any outside forces that caused a change in either the objectives or the approach to achieving those objectives?
