Side note from instructor:

  1. This research project requires you to tie together the key components of project management.
  2. Ensure all responses you provide (including numbers and facts) are supported with information from the journal, or where necessary, provide appropriate assumptions and additional information from external sources. However facts from the journal will trump all external sources. This journal including all other external sources should be correctly referenced.
  3. Use effective APA in-text citation to help the reader know exactly where you are picking your facts from.
