- Project Resources
- You have been asked to replace the project manager who was heading up your firm’s new compensation and benefits system. One of the reasons the project manager is being replaced is because the project schedule had the wrong resources assigned (e.g., resources who do not fully understand compensation and benefits). You have been asked to solve this problem quickly by either replacing the resources or getting the resources up-to-speed on compensation and benefits. Present your recommendation for solving this critical resource problem by reviewing the pros and cons of each option.
- Budgeting Time and Valuing Risk Management
- You have been assigned to analyze the project plan of a payroll system that is behind schedule and over budget. The project was supposed to be completed in one (1) year, but now, it is running about three (3) months behind schedule and 25% over budget. It is expected that the project may continue to fall further behind schedule and over budget. Your superior wants to know if the project can be saved. Recommend a series of actions to save the project and identify the risks in taking such an approach.
- TQM Planning
- Imagine your company is being considered for subcontracting the management of a project because of your firm’s excellent human resource and quality management skills. However, you find that you must first convince the contracting company that your company is worthy of the position. Recommend a plan that centers on total quality management (TQM) that highlights your firm’s experience with TQM and human resources.
