Project Management


Skills involved in this project: project management, project design, communication.


I created a University of Utah vegetation rebuild project based on my internship experiences at University of Utah Business service department.


In this project, I work individually to provide a complete project management plan with time frame management,  quality assessment, cost management and risk management that my client can review for further consideration.


In the process of developing this project plan, I defined and confirmed the project goals and objectives clearly and comprehensively, and I also created and identified different project tasks and how those tasks and goals will be achieved within the time frame I created. What's more, I provide and prepare quality assessment and budget reports to make this project more professional.
