You were the project manager in charge of building a house in Ashburn, Virginia. The house was a five-bedroom home estimated to cost $1.2 million dollars and had to be completed in 24 months. You have successfully built the house within cost and on time. You created a Project Budget, Project Schedule, Project Communication Plan, and Project Monitoring and Control Processes Plan for some unexpected schedule and cost problems.
Now, develop a lessons-learned document for your organization and the project stakeholders. A lessons-learned document describes procurement closure activities including administrative and contract closure activities. This lessons-learned document must include what went well, what went wrong, and suggestions for future house-building projects in Northern Virginia, which looks promising since your team was so successful in this house-building project. Explain why this document is important for your project.
Refer to Chapter 8 “Evaluating and Terminating the Project” on pages 280-298 of your Project Management in Practice textbook and Chapter 22 “Ending a Project” on pages 319-327 of your Project Management Absolute Beginner’s Guide textbook, for developing your project’s lessons-learned document.
Your Project Lessons Learned assignment should be at least two pages in length including a summarization and conclusion page. If necessary, include data from your Unit IV Project Budget, Unit V Project Schedule, and Unit VII Project Monitoring and Control Process Plan to support your lessons-learned document.
