Week 3 Assignment – Project Goals and Objectives
You’ve chosen your project, so you’re ready to communicate with those “customer(s)” and stakeholders who care most about the process and outcome of the project. In this activity, imagine you’ve just finished up an Agreement of Work meeting with your customer(s) where you defined the scope of the project and agreed on the project objectives. Now, you need to write a follow-up email to go over what discussed and agreed upon in the meeting. You will write a professional email to the customer(s) of your project, recapping the goals and objectives, tentative timeline, and potential resources necessary to complete the project. Clear, consistent communication is one of the keys to project management success.
