Your report can be in the form of a PowerPoint presentation or a Word document (based on the templates provided in the What to Submit section). In either format, be sure to effectively communicate with your stakeholders by breaking down concepts and using investor-friendly language to build their trust and confidence. If you choose to do a PowerPoint presentation, you’ll need to include speaker notes for each slide.

Complete a quality plan analysis of a failed project and a new quality assurance plan for the turnaround project.
This portfolio work project, quality analysis and assurance evaluation, is based on your selected business or IT project. You may choose to base your assessment on the Revive LLC case study for the development of a new online employee orientation module, or you may continue to base it on a company of your choice. Both human resource (HR) and information technology (IT) employees, as well as contractors, will be utilized in this project.
Project quality management is defined “as a methodology that includes the processes for incorporating the organizations’ quality policy regarding planning, managing, and controlling project and product quality requirements, in order to meet stakeholders’ expectations” (Project Management Institute, 2017, p. 717).
The quality management plan describes how the project team will implement quality policies to meet project requirements and satisfy the customers’ needs and expectations. A project plan usually includes a quality statement. This document deals with quality planning, quality assurance, and quality control through testing and continuous improvement of the project processes and the project deliverables. If the organization has a PMO and IT governance, a project needs to follow the basic framework and structure specified for all IT-related activities and projects in that organization. Since quality planning is one of the key facilitating processes in the project planning process, it must be performed as planned and in parallel with other planning processes.
The term quality can assume different meanings, depending on the circumstances in which it is applied. For example, as a customer, your quality requirements may be different from that of the product or service provider.
