...Project Management Jo Anne Bishop Ashford University Project Planning and Management BUS611 Dr. Caroline Howard October 14, 2012 Project Management Effective project management is crucial to the success of any project regardless of the size or complexity. Project management experts Karen Tate and Paula Martin said, “Trying to manage a project without project management is like trying to play football without a game plan” (Martin & Tate, 2001, pg 9). Project managers have a difficult job. Their jobs are often times made more difficult by the dynamic environment in which they must work. Project managers must take a project through the entire project management life-cycle, from an idea to a fully developed deliverable. While the job is difficult, there are many tools and processes that have been developed to assist in project management. While they are responsible for the leadership of the project, they have many, such as the project sponsor and project team members, who are there to assist them in ensuring the job gets done. In addition to the personnel who will help him, there are many different project management tools as well. Project scope, work breakdown structures, contingency plans and project management software are all tools that, if used properly, can ensure that a project can be completed within time and budget. Project management is not an easy job but if a project manager understands his project and his roles and responsibilities along with......

Project Management Chapter 5 Review

...Week 5 Review Questions March 2, 2013 1. The project manager’s primary attention must be on activities that are on the project’s critical path because if there is any delay at all, it would cause the project to be delivered late. 2. For any activities on the critical path, there is zero amount of slack. For activities not on the critical path, the slack is calculated by subtracting the ES (earliest start) from the LS (latest start) or by subtracting the EF (earliest finish) from the LF (latest finish). 3. To determine the ES for a item with 2 predecessors, the project manager should look at each predecessor to see if either one of them or both of them are on the critical path. The ES is the later of the 2 predecessor’s LF. The LF for an activity with 2 successors is determined by looking at each successor’s LS and determining which one has an earlier LS. 4. All the activities on the project’s non-critical path will not have the same slack because each of them can have different predecessors and different successors and different timeframes. 5. A. 4 B. 2 & 3 C. 5 6. Dummy tasks are used in situations where 2 activities have the same starting and ending nodes to make sure to be able to distinguish between the activities and not have the 2 activities be considered the same activity. 7. Because task d is only 6 days and task c is over double than task d so we can safely assume that a merge problem won’t occur because in all likelihood, task d...

Project Management Module Review

...Module 6 Questions 1. Discuss what needs to be done as part of closing a project. Why are these activities important? The process of closing the project includes collecting and making final payments, recognizing and evaluating staff, conducting a post-project evaluation, documenting lessons learned, and organizing and archiving project documents. These activities are important to make sure that the customer is satisfied, to gather information about how to improve for future projects, to determine whether additional opportunities are available with the customer, and to obtain permission to use the customer as a reference (Gido & Clement, 2014). 2. Discuss the internal post project evaluation process and the two types of meetings involved. The internal post-project evaluation process includes meetings with individual team members and a group meeting with the project team to gather feedback for improved future performance. The individual meetings allow the project manager to gather information and share performance appraisals describing how each team member's skills advanced while working on the project. The post-project team meeting is a time for the project manager to lead a discussion about how the team performed on the project in terms of technical competence, budget, schedule, project planning and control, risk management, customer and team relationships, communication, problem identification and resolution, lessons learned, and recommendations (Gido &...

Project Management Chapter 1 Review Questions

...Chapter 1: Review Questions 1. What is a project? It is a temporary effort intended to create a unique product, service, or result. 2. What is project management? It is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. 3. How are projects different from ongoing operations? Projects are temporary and unique while operations are continuous. Operations are an ongoing process to ensure that an organization continues to work effectively. For instance, operation managers can often use checklists to guide much of their work, but project managers rarely have checklists that identify all of the activities they need to accomplish. 4. What types of constraints are common to most projects? Time and budget constraints are common to most projects for clients, and the amount of resources available and the decision maker’s risk tolerance are constraints from an internal point of view. 5.

...11/17/07 The Project Management Life Cycle By Jason Westland (A book review by R. Max Wideman) Introduction Editor's Note: We liked so much of this book that we asked for the author's permission to quote extensively from the whole of Jason Westland's Chapter 1. This is because it succinctly describes what follows in detail in the remainder of the book. However, in pursuing our regular book review structure, we placed his text under corresponding headings. Since the quotations are so extensive, we have not followed our normal practice of indenting quoted paragraphs. However, the references are identified in the footnotes.

Project Management Review

...the Interactive Portal Project while working at ABC Corp. The project’s goal was to increase community engagement with the corporation through the provision of services through the use of the extra bandwidth available to the community via the Federal Broadband Network (FBN). Services were to be delivered through a planning website that would allow the department to provide pre-lodgement meetings via web conferencing and a community engagement website that would allow residents to access community forums or consultation workshops by live streaming these sessions. The project was part of the Federal Government’s rollout of the FBN and as such, funding to complete the project was provided in part by the Federal Government. Funding from the Federal Government was provided with the objective of increasing community engagement with the corporation, therefore imposing this change upon the corporation. The business change related to this proviso was that implementation of these websites would improve the delivery of services to the community, which the ABC Corp Corporate Plan states is one of the organisation’s goals (n.d, p 43). However, although the goal is aligned to one of ABC Corp objectives, delivering services through the internet has not been one of the business objectives (ABC Corp Corporate Plan, n.d, p 43). Therefore, the imposed goal could not be fully aligned to the actual business strategy and required an alternative goal to align the project to the......
