You will be developing your own project for this assignment. Please
choose a project (ex. Event, Construction Contract, Website Development).
Review the slides and book as necessary.

This project will be strictly marked on the logical and consistent choices
you have made in thinking through your project.

Make sure that everything is labeled correctly and logically. Anyone should
be able to look at the project file and understand it without any help.

It will also be marked on the criteria in the outline below.

Part 1

   1. Write up a project goal.

   2. Create a Microsoft Project File for your project.

   3. Develop a series of tasks and sub-tasks for this project. There should be
      no fewer than twelve tasks with specific durations. (not including main
      tasks (ex. Analysis) and milestones for example). Tasks should make
      logical sense. Put these tasks into your project file in the correct order. Try
      to group them appropriately using a clear Work Breakdown Structure.

   4. Think about reasonable durations for your tasks.

   5. What dependencies are there?
