Problem statement: NYU wants to re-design its application process. The new process will let students use mobile or web application to upload required documents such as resume, statement of purpose, and transcripts but will let students upload videos and give the admissions committee a view into their social work.
Technical considerations – The app works on all mobile and web platforms and the newly design application uses cloud based technologies (say Amazon Web services). Your application will have a new front end and back end. The application has an interface for students (potential) as well as for admission committee members. Further, the application has a front end (graphical user interface), a backend (database), middleware technology.
Business process considerations/Functional – Support staff and engineers cannot see the sensitive information students post only the admissions committee members have access to review student data. Students can login multiple times to continue working on their documents and can submit the application when all the information has been uploaded. Once the student submits the document then the admissions committee gets a notification via email. The application will be piloted by SPS and should be ready within 6 months.
You are hired as a project manager to execute the project. You have to build a project plan outlining all stages of project management life cycle as well as detailing out tasks, duration, dependencies, as well as building a project tracker (that will capture the overall progress for each story/sprint. Use slack where you need to address resource contention.
1. Define each project phase deliverables ( Using Agile Methodology)
a. What is expected from each phase by the project manage (you)
b. Details on who, what , where, when, how
2. Project plan/launch details – Network diagram ( with details on dependencies)
3 .Monitoring and control – Dashboard example only for a given sprint
