Part II

1.       Budget:  Using either a Microsoft Word Table or an Excel Spreadsheet, create a detailed budget for this project.  The numbers you use for this budget should be realistic.  For example, if you are going to have to rent folding chairs, conduct some research and find out how much that would cost.  If you have to contract a cleaning crew, research various companies that do this and use those numbers.  You will be graded on your knowledge of the subject, not the accuracy of the numbers.  Your budget must include at least 10 items that you will have to pay for.

2.  Work Breakdown Structure. Using Exhibits 6.4, 6.5 and 6.6 on pages 152-153 as an example, create a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for this parade.  Your WBS should include but not be limited to: Planning, Transportation, Food, Entertainment and Clean Up.  You can use Word, Excel or PowerPoint to create this diagram.
