Course Description:
This course is designed to expose students to the concepts, techniques, and tools of project

              project management teams.
           3. To develop strong teambuilding skills through the understanding and use of
              project management communication techniques.
           4. To give the student a working knowledge of the Microsoft Project 2003® software.

are scheduled for 02/11/05, 04/01/05, 05/07/05. The last exam will be given at 8:30 p.m. on
Saturday, May 7, 2005 in accordance with the CCSU final exam schedule as published on
Page 5 of the Spring 2005 Class Schedule and Registration Guide.

Project & Project Paper:
Each Student will each develop a project of his/her own choosing, using MS Project 2003®.
This can be anything from building a structure, planting a garden, getting a college degree,
planning and having a wedding or special party, or from a plethora of other possible projects
that can occur in life. Projects may be submitted on CD or floppy disk, or by e-mail no later than
the end of class, Friday, April 22, 2004. The papers are due at the same time and can be on
paper, CD, or floppy disk, or can be submitted by e-mail. Late projects and papers will be
penalized five percent during the first week after they are due and ten percent during the second
week after they are due. Late projects and papers will not be accepted after May 3, 2005.

Also, each student will submit a four to six page paper explaining the project and the use of MS
Project 2003® in its development. Papers will be double space, using a font size of twelve, and
must be well written in APA or MLS format. If you are unfamiliar with these style formats, see
the CCSU library website at http://adminservices.clayton.edu/library/TutorialsWrite.html.
Projects will be graded on completeness and scope of use of MS Project 2003. Papers will be

graded on clarity of explanation, correctness of writing, and format. Grammar, spelling,
sentence structure, organization, and neatness do count. For a writing review, see my website
or click on the following link http://tech.clayton.edu/gcrawford/TECH3110/WRITINGGUIDE.PPT.

Attendance:
Class attendance and participation is expected. Students are allowed one absence without
penalty. After that, ALL absences result in a one percent deduction from the student’s final
class average. For example, if the student finishes the course with an 80%, which is good for a
grade of “B”, but has two absences, the one point deduction for the extra absence results in the
student losing one percent of that average for a 79%, which results in the student receiving a
grade of “C” for the course.

Required Technology and Computer Competencies:
MGMT 4111 requires use of CCSU e-mail, the CCSU network and websites, and Microsoft
Project® and Microsoft Word®. Each CCSU student is required to have ready access throughout
the semester to a notebook computer that meets faculty-approved hardware and software
requirements for the student’s academic program. See http://itpchoice.clayton.edu for full
details of this policy.

Communications:
The best way to communicate with your professor is through e-mail. I check it everyday except
on some Saturdays and Sundays. If you call the office when I am not in, leave a message with
the School of Business secretary and I will get back to you.
