The emphasis of the project portfolio and project management in general is not on the technology or actual application

The actual nature or application field of the project is up to you. The “project? can be real, from work, from home, from the literature or history, fictitious but realistic, etc. The emphasis of the project portfolio and project management in general is not on the technology or actual application. That said, whatever you feel comfortable with and you feel will meet all the aspects you’ll have to document. A simple or small project could be tougher to document in the end vs. a large scale project and of course vice-versa. As an aside it can be a finished project, in-progress project or yet to start project. Finished projects have the advantage that you know the history already. Kerzner?s (2013) Project Management Case Studies book discusses many actual completed projects. But you should be able to find many project?s discussed on the web. You could go to the Project Management Institute?s (PMI) website and look for various project examples and projects of the year examples. Also, somewhere in your state probably several, there are PMI local chapters. You could check them out too for info; they should have their own websites. You could also see what projects are or have been completed by your local or state government. The information should be available to you as a resident. A completed or existing project, independent of whether you were or were not involved may be better if you have access to the necessary information and documentation (you can within reason guesstimate some things as necessary if not available). The important thing is to select a project for which you will be able to document the nine required areas: ?Project charter (optional, but highly recommended) ?Project scope ?Project schedule ?Project budget ?Project milestones & deliverables ?Quality management plan ?Staffing management plan ?Communication management plan ?Change management plan ?Risk management plan & accompanying risk register ?Other items of value
