Project Charter
General Project Information
The project integration management will be based on the hotel’s reputation and its
willingness to continue franchising. It focuses on implementing a franchise Marriott Hotel at
Smyrna beach in Florida. The main reason for selecting such a destination is because of the
Smyrna beach’s attractiveness to both American and South American citizens. The Project meets
the needs of many citizens and foreigners. The government will be one of the most significant
sponsors of the Project.
Project Objective
The Project aims at increasing the number of tourists in Florida state and Volusia county.
The success of such an objective will be based on the willingness of the state of Florida to
support its implementation.
Assumptions
Some of the most significant assumptions and constraints affecting the Project include:
•
Getting all resources required in its implementation.
•
The sponsors will be attending the project implementation process.
•
The suppliers will provide the required materials on time.
Project Scope
The purpose of this Project is to maintain a strong brand for Marriott Hotels in Florida.
The Project meets the hotels’ needs since it will play a significant role in increasing the number
of tourists it receives annually. Therefore, the project deliverables will include implementing an
5
integrated system that will monitor the number of visitors the hotels receive annually after the
project implementation. One of the most significant risks associated with this Project is whether
it will be successfully implemented within the indicated duration.
Project Milestone
The approval of the Project will be based on the millstone schedule provided below. After its
approval by the county government, the resources allocated towards sustaining the Project’s
success will be made available within ten days. Therefore, the sponsor will have the
responsibility of approving any changes that may arise during the process of implementing the
Project. The milestone and deliverables associated with the Project will include:
•
March 3, 2021- Completion of the project planning and its approval.
•
March 10, 2021- Determining any possible impact of the Project on the hotels.
•

Summary
The project manager has the responsibility of interfering with the project budget when
required. The project manager still has the responsibility to delegate duties among the team
members and appropriately communicate with both the contractors and management team. That
will play a significant role in ensuring the Project succeeds and will be based within the required
budget.

Scope Management Plan
Just like other plans, scope management plan entails various processes that ensure proper
implementation of necessary tasks for the success of the project. The scope management plan
will help in explaining, developing, structuring, and verifying the project. The scope
management plan will help in defining the processes that must be done between 03/03/2021
when the project initiates to its completion phase. The scope will help in developing how such
processes will be monitored. The monitoring process will be conducted by the sponsors who are
the county government officials. The project will as well be tracked as part of avoiding any
scope creep in the process of approving any possible changes within the project. During the
closing phase, the scope management plan will help in auditing the deliverables.

Project cost management
Money needed to complete the project includes the following;
1. Legal charges cost amounting to $1000
2. The cost incurred in promotion materials amounting to $100
3. Computers purchased at $1000
4. Payment to contractors of $1000
5. Employees expenses amounting to $2400
6. Other expenses amounting to $250
The duration of the project will include the time from the assessment of the project.
Employee hiring and training is also part of the duration process. Considering all the necessary
factors, the project will take 220 days to be complete.
Date during the project and percentage completion
Date: 24/3/2021
Time into project: 7 months
Percentage completion: 60%
Expected completion to date: 24/5/2021
Current project cost: $5750
17
Budget at completion: $6000
Cost performance index
Cost performance index = earned value/actual cost
Earned value = % of complete work * budget at completion.
Earned value = 60% * $6000 = 3600
Cost performance index = 3600/5750 = 0.6261
Schedule performance index
Schedule performance index = earned value/planned value
Schedule performance index = 3600/6000 = 0.6
The project baseline was targeted to be a cost of $6000 for completion of the project. The
actual cost incurred in the project is $5750. The actual cost of the project is below the project
baseline at $250.

Evaluation of the current project shows the project cost is below what is expected or
below the targeted cost. I predict that in future, the cost will not exceed the budgeted cost of the
project.
Cost management plan
The cost management plan entails improving the Marriott hotel’s reputation as the main
objective of the project (Van der Linden & Roets, 2017). Besides, it also involves continuous
franchise at Smyma beach in Florida. To ensure cost management I will employ the following
measures of performance, such as earned value management which is used in measuring the cost
performance of projects. To maintain control of the project budget is of utmost importance. The
budget determines the cost management plan. For the budgeted cost of $6000 in the project, I
have set a threshold of $600 for corrective action if the project gets behind.
The other plan is to sticking to the deadline and insisting on accuracy (Van der Linden &
Roets, 2017). Accuracy enables the creation of consistency in planning, controlling, and
monitoring of cost. Writing reports to various team members explaining the projects and what is
expected of them. The following additional details will be included cost recording procedure
which will help in identification of expenses. In case an addition budget is required, there will be
a certain amount set aside in this case; the amount is $600
Project quality management tool

Pareto diagram
Pareto diagram is a quality tool that helps in the identification of most occurring defects.
Pareto diagram is a visual tool used in the analysis of the data set. The process involves the
analysis of the data set that is characterized with a specific issue or problem. Pareto improves
how decisions affecting the project are solved and cause enhancement of skills of solving
problems.
Situation that goes wrong during the project
Defects experienced at different levels of project development the defects include lack of
resources such as people with the required skills. At project implementation, the fault is highest
with 15%, followed by the initialization stage with 10%, then development with 5%, and the
finalizing stage with 4.5%.

The primary cause of defect in various stages of the project is resources. For example, lack of

15%.
Development of the quality management plan
The following are the important components of my project’s quality management plan
(Van der Linden & Roets, 2017). The first component is the project process and deliverables
subject to a quality view of the project. After the deliverable is complete and is accepted by the
customer, the information is described in the customer satisfaction criteria. Development of
quality management plan includes controlling of activities and identifying whether the quality
standard is achieved. The last step is the assurance of quality in activities. Quality assurance
verifies and monitors the process used to create and manage deliverables to ensure it is effective.
