Learning Team A

Real-Life Project Management Plan Phase One

              A wedding plan can be an extensive, exhausting, and complicated process that requires time, money, and resources. A successful wedding and reception will be executed within a planned budget and time constraints. However, a disappointing executed project may cause going over the planned budget and falling behind the planned schedule.

              The purpose of this paper is to develop a wedding project management plan. The plan will include a project scope statement, project charter, and work breakdown structure (WBS).  In addition, the plan will include a design of the communication plan identifying the key stakeholder groups, their project information needs, and a table summarizing what information will be produced during the project lifecycle. In addition, a power point presentation will be prepared by illustrating the phase one project deliverables.
