Assignment Description:

This is the first time that the CIO has had a project manager directly reporting to him. He wants to make sure that you follow best practices in project management. However, he has a very biased view of project management (he has a PMP® credential and exclusively favors A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Sixth Edition), so he tends to hinder you rather than help you. You are seeking to educate him about the variety of project management methodologies so that he can best help and evaluate your work. He has asked that you develop a presentation comparing several different project management models, such as Agile, Waterfall, Critical Path Method (CPM), Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), Six Sigma, Scrum, etc.

Your presentation must be 7 slides (with 150 words of speaker notes per slide). Additionally, include a title and reference slide. The title slide (including topic title, your name, etc.) makes your presentation look and appear professional. The reference slide at the end with correctly APA style formatted references ensures your information and positions are substantiated and that credit for others’ work is acknowledged with correctly APA style formatted in-text citations in your speaker notes.
