NOTE 1: I have attached an article from PM Journal, which is case study of a project to harmonize practices for the use of IV pumps at a Canadian healthcare center. Although not in the format of Assignment 1, it does contain an example of a project charter, which may be valuable as guidance for your team project, and it does show how the project connects with the overarching mission of the healthcare center.

Did you inform the reader about the project so that you could discuss it intelligently with someone else?
Did you link the project to the organization’s mission, vision, and values?
Did you make assertions, such as “this project was a success”, or “this project is used as an example a to how NOT to run a project”.

Other things to consider:

Did you make appropriate use of figures and tables in an appendix? Don’t substitute quantity for quality here – one good, relevant, and meaningful small table is worth 100 randomly inserted graphs and charts.
