Project Name: Location Scout Training
1.0 Executive Summary
The Capstone project â€“ Location Scout Training Program is the training program for â€œLocation
Scouts â€œto fill a gap in the production market. The purpose of the Location Scout Training
Program will allow students from the program to learn more about the skillset requirement,
knowledge, production process, position, and cultural awareness of location scouts. The benefit
of the project is that it allows the sponsor- Spaceperk to have more resources to support the
global business of space rentals.
Scope baseline is set on starting date of the project, which is April 14, 2022. The main scope of the
project is to create a â€œScout Locationâ€ training program, in a specific cost amount, which is around
$40,000 and the schedule of the project is around four and half months. As we are following
bottom-up and survey methods for estimation. Each task’s total cost has been computed, making it
easier to see how much money has been spent on the project.

Cost and Budget Plan
3.1 Project Cost Statement
The practice of projecting the financial and other resources required to accomplish a project
within a stated scope is called cost estimating in project management. Cost estimation produces a
total sum that sets a project’s budget by accounting for each aspect required for the project, from
materials to labor. A comprehensive cost estimate should include both direct and indirect costs of
completing a project. This will likely involve a variety of overhead costs (utilities, labor, etc. ),
labor costs (both time and salaries paid), materials and equipment costs, vendor fees (if the
project employs third-party workers, freelancers, or other contractors), and more, depending on
the circumstances of the business. There are three types of predictions in the expense industry: C,
B, and A estimates. As you initiate the process of project cost, it’s important to understand the
backdrop for each type of estimation. Consider the different types of estimations as a target. A
Class C estimate clearly allows for greater flexibility when calculating the cost of a defect
correction job. Following are the four types:
Consistent estimates are a good indicator of accuracy. A consistent estimate is one that yields the
same outcome when performed by different skilled employees. Using the same cost-estimating
application across your whole organization allows for uniform comparisons of budget and
management-related job estimates at all levels. This means that your predicted costs are close to
the actual project expenses, allowing for enhanced accountability because managers at all levels
will have more comparable data to make choices with.
3.2 Cost Baseline Statement (Submission 2)
3.3 Contingency Reserve Policy & Request
This project will include a $10,000 contingency reserve. In order to use the reserve, the PM will
have to send an email request to the Project Sponsor. The Project Manager must submit the
request at least two days before the resources are scheduled to be used. If the Project Manager
needs to use the contingency reserve right away, they can do so according to $2000 before
getting consent if at least half of the reserve isn’t used. The formal request should still be sent by
4.1 Communication Plan
As a project manager, you have the unique ability to perform a hundred jobs at once, including
delegating duties, removing project roadblocks, and ensuring that everyone is working toward
the same goal. Poor communication leads to project failure, which could lead to significant
financial losses for the organization. High-performing organizations, on the other hand,
communicate more often and more effectively than their low-performing rivals (LucidChart,
2022). Our primary goal of communication plan is to achieve following:
The communications plan’s goal or objective
Stakeholders’ responsibilities and information
Information should be shared with stakeholders
The desired frequency of communication for each stakeholder
Following are the steps of the communication plan:
1. Choose a format
2. Set a communication goal
3. Identify stakeholders
4. Identify methods of communication
5. Determine frequency of communication
6. Determine who provides communication updates
4.2 Communication Matrix â€“ Issued as an Appendix to this Plan
5.1 Risk Management Plan
The risk management plan for Scout training program will give its project team members a
sense of risk managing actions that they could take to identify, analyze, and respond to
threats in project.
The risks in the project can be identified using techniques like creating checklists, document
reviewing, SWOT analysis, brainstorming, etc. Risk register is one of the most important
tools that keeps project managers well informed about the risks.
Expected cost of risk faced and the probability of that risk occurring is to be calculated
through a combination of analyzing data, consulting with experts, and estimating from
experience. Then, multiplying the cost of each risk by its probability and adding up all the
resulting numbers which will generate overall projected risk amount.
Monitoring and Control:
â€¢ Continuous risk management process will prove beneficial in implementing risk
management and system analysis.
â€¢ Sometimes, reducing the risk to an acceptable level is better than removing it.
â€¢ Change request should be created because risks could change during the project, and it
needs to be update

7.1 Procurement Plan
The following three items are the outsources that will need to for out for contracted services.
Instructors training program
The Scout Training Program Project requires
location scout and subject matter experts as the
instructors to have lectures, presentations,
demonstrations, and discussions with the
students. To ensure the quality of the Scout
Training Program Project, we need to have
certificated quality instructors.
Learning management system
The training program project requires a learning
management system for the administration,
documentation, tracking, reporting, automation,
and delivery of scout locating courses, training
programs, workshops, learning material, and
zoom records. In our Scout Training Program
Project, we need to use outsourcing to ensure
learning satisfaction and learning quality.
Course content development
The course content development includes the
process of designing, developing, managing,
implementing, and evaluating the scout location
courses. The course material also needs to be
developed by the course content development.
To ensure the quality and professionalism of the
program, we need to hire experts to create
courses and material for our Scout Training

9 Integrated Change Control Policy
9.1 Integrated Change Control Policy
Every change in this Scout Training Program Project should follow the Intergraded Change
Control Policy. In the Scout Training program Project, any project stakeholders may request a
change request, but it can only be the project manager, Change Control Board (CCB) member,
SMEs, or any assigned team members to submit the change request with the Change Control
Request Form. The Change Control Board (CCB) is responsible for reviewing and analyzing the
change requests. The members of the Change Control Board (CCB) consist of project sponsors,
project managers, clients, and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
The project sponsor, project managers, and Change Control Board (CCB) will be the ones who
have the authority to authorize a change request. However, depending on the size/ scope of the
request, the process and criteria would be different. In this Scout Training Program Project, if the
budget of the change request is within $5K, the change request form will be authorized by the
project manager. If the work time of the change request is within 24 hours, the change request
form will be authorized by the project manager as well. Other change requests not following the
requirement above should be authorized by the Change Control Board (CCB).
If the change is approved, the change will be communicated to the team who is responsible for
the content that is going to be changed. The corresponding changes followed by the change
request form will be implemented by the team members who are going to make the request
changes. Project managers will be responsible for updating the project plan, after the approval of
the change control request. The project deliverables will be updated to reflect the changes. The
change request will be closed on the CID log as well
