You are the project manager for the project you selected and identified in the prior assignments. Using your Microsoft Project software, sketch out your action plan. Use the action plan to develop the work breakdown schedule (WBS) as follows: •Create a list of between 5–10 major deliverables that need to be undertaken and completed, in the general order of how they would occur. This is Level 1 of the action plan. •Next, break out each of the Level 1 deliverables into 5–10 activities. This is Level 2 of the action plan. Then, break out Level 2 items into smaller activities. This is Level 3 of the action plan. Keep going with continuous sub-level activities until there is no reason to continue. Depending on your project, only 2 levels may be required for a particular deliverable, so not all level 2 activities are expected to be broken out into level 3 activities. •The budget has not yet been established.

Include the following using your Microsoft Project software: •Deliverables
Tasks to complete deliverables (estimate durations based on available resources) •Planned start dates (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks) •Planned completion dates (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks)Planned Milestones (Use Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks) •Individual(s) or department(s) assigned to complete the work of tasks to produce deliverables (use the Resource Sheet view to list resources, and then use Assign Resources tool in the Gantt chart view to assign resources to tasks) •Estimated project completion date based on use of Predecessor relationships to sequence tasks Add the organizational chart that you developed.
