Week 3: Discussion: Introduction to Project Management

Purpose

The purpose of this discussion is to explore the scope of the DNP project. Scope is the backbone of any project and must be accurately assessed by the project manager. When issues occur during a project, it is frequently related to the scope. A defined goal helps keep everyone on track.

Instructions

Reflect upon your readings and personal or professional experience and address the following.

1. Defend the scope as the backbone of any project and why it must be accurately assessed by the project manager.

2. Describe how issues that occur during a project are frequently related to the scope. Examine how poorly defined project scope statements are often linked to project problems, or even to failed projects.
