Culminating Project Discussion HCA 620
This assignment has two parts as a culminating project: an executive summary and a project plan created in either MS Project (PC) or Apple Merlin (MAC). Those who are having difficulties with the Project software may complete this section of the assignment in Excel. To complete this assignment, use prior course information and data gathered for your CLC Business Plan.
Create a one-page executive summary for your CLC Business Plan.
Plan your project in Microsoft Project or Apple Merlin. Excel can be used in place of Word as needed.
Check your CLC Business Plan: Determine the distinct activities required to launch the business: (a) Determine the tasks required to complete the project. (b) Create a completion timeline. (c) Assign project resources to tasks.
Be inventive. As an example: If your plan calls for three nurses, you must consider hiring and training. Make up arbitrary timetables for each activity. They could be very general (2 weeks to hire, 2 weeks to train) or much more specific (1 week to write hiring ad, 1 week to place ad, 2 weeks to accept applications, 1 week to review, 3 weeks for interviews, 1 week for offer-letters, 2 weeks to establish in HR system, etc.). Carry out this procedure for each section of the CLC Business Plan.
Prepare this assignment in accordance with the APA Style Guide, which can be found in the Student Success Center. There is no need for an abstract.
You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so
indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
