Prior to beginning work on this assignment,

Using the project management case study, develop a project charter  (use headings) of three to four pages (no more than four pages). In  addition to the course textbook, research two additional resources. In  your charter,

  • Summarize the project’s scope and limitations.
  • Propose a business case for the project. 
    • Address how the project will enable the corporate strategy.
    • Address how the project will apply corporate social responsibility (CSR) values.
    • Calculate the Net Present Value (NPV) for the project business case.  (Use Microsoft Excel to derive the NPV assuming the data below—submit  an Excel spreadsheet as an appendix: 
      • Purchase price of $400,000.
      • One-time project costs total of $100,000 spent in Year 0.
      • Net benefits after taxes of $150,000 per year for five years.
      • Salvage value for Year 6 and beyond of $400,000.)
    • Summarize your results of NPV in the paper and refer to the Appendix.
  • Develop a milestone schedule that includes five to seven elements 
    • Use the case study to derive the milestones. If the case is lacking,  feel free to include a solution or milestone that you think Walmart  would value.
  • Predict the risks, threats, and opportunities of the project.
  • Outline resources needed for the project.
  • Develop your plan to form a high-performing project team.
  • Identify five important groups of stakeholders.

The Project Charter Development paper

  • Must be three to four double-spaced pages in length (not including  title and references pages) and formatted according to APA Style as  outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s APA Style (Links to an external site.).
  • Must include a separate title page with the following: 
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
