The group will be composed of two students, and they will be expected to analyse the project from their own perspectives as up-and-coming project managers. The project scope and quality management plans should include components such as project goals and objectives, project scope statement, work breakdown structure, quality responsibilities, approaches to quality assurance, control and improvement, and quality metrics. The plans should also describe the processes, tools, and techniques used, as well as the justification for the quality metrics selected.

and quality approaches for the project in the assigned Case Study provided by your Learning
Please refer to the Instructions for details on how to complete this task.
The backbone of a project manager’s work is the Project Management Plan. This plan details the
project’s execution, monitoring, and control. It combines all of the planning’s sub-plans and baselines.
You and your group will create a Project Management Plan for your assigned Case Study in this
assessment. Applying scope and quality tools and techniques to develop the scope statement and
scope and quality management plans of a project is a crucial part of project planning. One of the keys
to project success is effective scope management. Project Scope Management includes processes to
ensure that the project includes all work required to complete it successfully.

A project’s quality management plan defines quality requirements, standards for the project and its
deliverables, and how the project will demonstrate compliance. One of the main benefits of this
process is that it provides guidance and direction on how quality will be managed and validated
throughout the project.
