5. Develop work breakdown structure (WBS) of the case project featuring 4-6 levels and 20-30 boxes 6. Develop schedule plan (Activity List featuring 30-50 activities) including durations, sequencing, with milestones, deliverables, and network diagram of the case project
A report of 2000 words summarising your report must be submitted on the due date. Your report must have a cover page duly completed and signed, and it has to be fully referenced in Harvard style.
