1. Provide a brief summary of your chosen project.
2. Identify and discuss your project’s greatest challenges (at least three) and provide a recommendation for addressing each of the challenges.
3. Examine how you manage your project performance via earned value management. Identify at least three key EVM metrics you will use for your project.
4. Discuss your plan to properly close your project when it is over.
5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
· Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
