Practical Project Evaluation
Choose one of two projects
I. Sydney Opera House
II. Berlin Airport
For the chosen project, try to do the following:
i. Write a possible project charter
ii. Discuss if the project has failed or succeeded based on the three project
evaluation criteria: time, cost, and scope
iii. Discuss the phenomena of scope creep in the project
iv. Identify the stakeholders in the project
v. Develop a hypothetical WBS of the project. (only 3 levels) Use draw.io to draw
the diagram. ( A video will be provided)
2. WBS and WBS dictionary
Read the attached paper about developing a WBS dictionary of a road construction project and
answer the following:
I. According to the authors, why there is difficulty in achieving the project target?
II. In page 2 of the paper, the authors discuss the WBS based on Based on the 5th edition
of PMBOK, while on page 5 they show their standardized WBS dictionary. Does the
standardized WBS dictionary in page 5 cover the WBS definition in page 2?
III. Compare the suggested WBS in page 3 to the WBS explained in class. What differences
are there? Who is wrong, your PM instructor or the authors of the paper?
IV. In class, we have aggregated work packages to form activities. In this paper, they have
divided work packages to form activities. What do you expect to see in real-world,
aggregation or division?
