Choose an industry which best aligns with your future career aspirations as a project manager from the following list:
First decide on an industry. Then select a real corporation that is large enough to house a Project Management Office (PMO). Find the organization’s mission, vision, and values statement. Also review the strategic plan of the organization. This can often be found in the annual report that corporations share with their shareholders and the general public online.
Your assignment is to write a 2-3 page report that provides an overview of the corporation where you are interested in starting a PMO. You will need to define and explain the organization’s mission, vision, and values as well as how they generate a profit or meet their goals. You will need to explain how the organization currently utilizes project managers, which can often be found by calling the human resources unit.
This first assignment will serve as a checkpoint with your instructor and will lay the groundwork for your final Portfolio Project in Module 8. While this is not worth points in Week 2, failure to submit this Portfolio Project deliverable in Week 2 will result in a loss of points on your final project.
