Consider the application characteristics and requirements when building your project plan. For example, the app will require a search feature so employees can search for available programs, will require security to protect personal information, etc., which will help with the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). Note: This information will be helpful in the Week 2 – Apply: Work Breakdown Structure assignment.

Read the 2 linked examples of project plans implemented as Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets: Example Plan A and Example Plan B. Use these as guides in creating your own draft project plan (DO NOT SUBMIT THE SAME TASKS!). Notice the differences between these 2 examples in terms of length (overall and task length), the structure of the work breakdown (iterative vs. non-iterative), and methodology. 

Submit your assignment – both your completed methodology questions and your project plan.
