Unit II Proposal

In Unit II, you have learned about the organizational structures and cultures that projects must operate in. To prepare for this assignment, review Table 2.1 on page 23 of the textbook.

Your first task is to choose one of the three major organizational structures to associate with Lucky Me Animal Rescue. The structure you choose to associate with the rescue is up to you, but keep in mind that it will continue to be the environment for your project as you complete the additional assignments in this course.

Next, you will write a proposal you can deliver to the rescue’s leadership and stakeholders to help them understand how the adoption event will be managed within the identified organizational structure. The goal is to help them understand how their organizational structure will affect the project.

Your proposal should start with a very brief identification and description of Lucky Me Animal Rescue’s organizational structure.

You must then address how that structure will affect project characteristics. Refer to Table 2.1 in the textbook for a list of specific characteristics.

Finally, at a minimum, your proposal must also:

examine the project manager’s role in the structure, explore how project communication will be conducted within the structure, and assess how project personnel and resources are affected by the organizational structure and how this can impact project progress and completion.

Your proposal must be a minimum of two pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You must use at least two sources to support your proposal, one of which may be the textbook. All sources used must be peer-reviewed or academic in nature.

Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including the title page and in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
