Assume the role of project manager

This is an essay exam. Please format in APA style. References are not required, but you are welcome to use them to support your answers if you feel it useful. Please take a graduate-level, well thought-out approach to your responses. Surface-level answers will not receive full credit. Use your own words because all exams will be run through Turnitin.
PART I
Select two projects of your choice.* One should be a smaller project, and the other should be more large-scale. Describe each of the projects.
Note: These can be projects you’ve been a part of in the past (work projects, school projects, home projects, etc.) or entirely hypothetical.
Note: You may define “small” and “large” however you choose, but the two projects you select should be different enough that they are easy to compare.
PART II
Assume the role of project manager and complete the following tasks for each of the projects. Include any charts, tables or diagrams that you would use to manage each project. (Identify at least 5 major WBS tasks for the large project, and at least 3 for the small project, and at least 1 subtask for each).
Make sure you explain how and why the tasks are similar or different for your two projects. (Example: some projects may require a thorough risk assessment, but others may not. If yours does, discuss it and show what the associated risk assessment diagram might look like; but if you can explain why one or both of your projects wouldn’t require it, that’s sufficient too.)
Feel free to make any assumptions about your projects, but please explain them.
You will be graded based on your understanding of the project management process, as well as your demonstrated knowledge of project variety.
