After completing any project, it is important to conduct a review of the project to ensure that all activities have been completed and delivered in scope. Reviews also help gather lessons learned for future project managers.
Remember that a project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end, with a defined scope. It is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a single goal. For example, your involvement in this course can be viewed as a project: it has a definite beginning and end, it has a defined scope (the syllabus), and it is designed to accomplish a single goal (to provide you with an overview of project management).
Your final assignment for this course will be to conduct a project evaluation as part of its closeout. You are to create a PowerPoint presentation of at least 8 slides. In your presentation, you will perform a review of this course (the course represents the project, and the course syllabus represents the project plan and the instructor represents the project manager). Your presentation should apply closeout best practices and should capture lessons learned.
