Throughout the duration of this course, you will be developing a project plan to present to your stakeholders. In order to make this a meaningful course, it is important that you select a project that aligns with your current work situation or a potential future work environment of interest to you. Please use the definition of a project outlined on pp. 6–7 of your textbook to help select your project.

In Unit VII, you will formulate a PowerPoint in which you will present your project plan to your stakeholders based on your work from earlier units.
