Prior to beginning work on this assignment, please complete this week’s readings, review the Weekly Lecture, and the grading rubric for this assignment.

It may be helpful to download the grading rubric and use it as a checklist to ensure you covered all the necessary elements.
While a five-week course barely covers the full work of a project manager, it should have given you a solid perspective on the field and the variety of responsibilities of a project manager. Now that you have the basics, it is your turn to share what you know.
Congratulations, you have been hired as a project manager! The company that hired you will be doing a series of projects over the next five years, but most of their employees have little project experience. The company wants to start on the right foot and ensure that employees are using standard project management terms and processes. Your first task with this new company is to write a training manual to provide an overview of project management and the processes and terms the employees will need to know to be part of (and even lead) project teams. You will be sharing what you have learned in this course and sharing updated and corrected examples of the work you have done in this course to use as examples in this manual.
The Project Management Training Manual will include screenshot examples and explanations of project selection form, project scope template, work breakdown structures (WBS), and the Gannt chart created in prior weeks. Be sure to update these examples based on any new criteria presented in these instructions. Prior to completing this Final Paper, review this week’s required readings from the textbook, this week’s lecture, and feedback from past learning activities. Include feedback you received on the previous assignments, knowledge you obtained in the class, and your research so that the training manual will reflect project management best practices.
In your paper, include the following elements:
Executing Phase of the Project Lifecycle
Monitoring and Controlling Phase
Your Project Management Training Manual Final Paper
