  • At least 2 milestones
  • People and other resources assigned to each of the tasks
  • Project’s overall budget
  • Adjusted project tasks, schedules, and costs based on potential project risks

The format should be a Project file, PDF, or other format noted by the instructor.

Besides the Project plan, make any necessary changes for your RASCI matrix and risk matrix based on feedback from your instructor and peers. Submit your updated RASCI matrix and risk matrix in a Word or Excel file.
