Blockchain Implementation Project Plan
Every project that has a reasonable chance at success starts with a solid plan. A project plan is far more
than just a schedule – it is a master plan that directs all planning and execution efforts to meet a
project’s goals. For this class project, you will create a project plan to implement a newly developed
The first step in this assignment is to describe your organization’s environment and blockchain
application. You can choose a consumer-based or enterprise application environment. Each one has its
own environmental concerns. Once you describe your organization and blockchain application
environment, you will provide the abbreviated project plan. (A real project plan will include detailed
schedule, budget, procurement, and other supporting plans. This project won’t require all components
of a real-life project plan.)
You abbreviated project plan (with organizational and blockchain environment introduction) must be no
less than 1500 words. Your paper must be in proper APA format, including proper in-text citations and
end references for any external sources you use. No more than 10% of this paper may originate from
external sources. This isn’t a research paper – it is a project plan.
Your paper must start with the following sections (which should comprise at least 1/3 of your paper):
• Organizational overview – Introduce your organization (it can be fictitious). Describe what your
organization does, how it defines success, what services or products it produces, and why it
decided to venture into blockchain technology. Then describe the specific goals blockchain
technology must meet to be deemed a success.
• Blockchain environment overview – Describe the type of blockchain your organization has
decided to implement and why. Explain how your chosen blockchain implementation is the best
choice for your organization’s goals and capabilities, and how your organization participates in
your chosen blockchain network’s governance.
Here are the sections your project plan must include:
• Project overview – Within the context of an organization and blockchain environment (described
in the first 2 sections of your paper), provide an overview of this project. What application are
you implementing? (Describe a novel blockchain application that derives value from blockchain
technology. Explain why blockchain technology is required for your application to operate.) This
section should include a description of what application you are implementing, and how you
define success for your project.
• Project charter – The high-level initial project document necessary to gain approval and funding
(includes the following)
o Reasons for engaging in this project (Why do you want to implement this application?)
o Project objectives
o Project constraints
o Project stakeholders
o Project scope
o Project risks (Include scalability, compliance, and security)
o Project benefits
o Project cost (Provide reasonable estimates of personnel and infrastructure cost to
accomplish what you’re proposing.)
• Deliverables – a list (with descriptions) of artifacts to be delivered to the customer (defined in
stakeholders above) at the end of the project
• Critical success factors – What criteria will customers use to determine whether the deliverables
• Work Breakdown Structure – What steps are necessary to take your application from a
development environment to a deployed and operating environment? This section
demonstrates an understanding of the implementation process. Provide a description, along
with details, of tasks necessary to deploy a blockchain application and make it available for end
users. You don’t need to provide specific commands or details but describe the process in
enough detail that your technical staff could create procedures from your plan.
• Quality plan – Describe how you plan to measure and enforce quality standards at each step.
Describe your chosen quality metrics and how you will ensure your desired quality standards
will be maintained.
• Operationalization plan – Once you have successfully deployed your application conducted a
formal hand-off to customers, describe how you will hand-off the maintenance of your
application to operations. Describe the process of handing off the application and what
operations needs to take delivery of your application responsibilities.
Don’t let this plan become a collection of lists. The purpose of this assignment is for you to consider the
level of effort required to implement any blockchain application. We aren’t covering the initial
blockchain network implementation – just an application’s implementation. Be creative when you
choose an application. Really think through how to describe your blockchain application in such a way
that you can use your description to get funding and support for your project.
You project plan file must be a Microsoft Word format (.docx), and have the filename with the following
• SECTION is the section number of your current course (2 digits)
• STUDENTID is the LAST FOUR digits of your student ID number
• LASTNAME is your last name, FIRSTNAME is your first name
