Executive Summary

This Project Management Plan is the result of the time and energy spent by the members

of SQUEAL (Students Quietly Undertaking to Encourage Apt Learning), who have

embarked upon the task of learning about management in an information environment.

The path we have chosen is outlined in this document.

SQUEAL is devoted to learning how to “work effectively within a larger organization

and to assume managerial responsibilities,” and each of SQUEAL’s members works to

achieve this goal through internal, external and personal factors. The Project

Management Plan is a guide which SQUEAL has created for itself in order to accomplish

our common goals in a timely and thorough manner.

The Plan includes an Introduction, Goals and Objectives, a list of Deliverables, the

Resources which Squeal has at its disposal, Constraints, Strategy and Actions, our

Budget, Controls, a description of our Documentation process, the Review and

Appendices.
