20% of course grade

You are to write an executive summary that could be the first few pages of a longer summary document associated with the A226 project.  Your report should be a summary of how the A226 project was implemented with respect to project management.  Rather than a two page report and an oral presentation, you will only be submitting this three page report. 

Note that this is an individual project. Although it is expected that students have been discussing the readings and other course related issues outside of class, the final written exam document should be your own individual work.

  1. Submit the report with your REAL name on a cover page.
