MGT 402 Module 2 Assignment 2 Project Team and Stakeholder Management

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Read the project case for this assignment. As the project manager for the District 4 Warehouse Move project, you will need to determine who your stakeholders and project team members are for this project. Remember that anyone connected to the project who has an interest or stake in the project should be considered as a stakeholder. This would include the project team, vendors and management among possible others. After you have determined who your stakeholders are, determine who will need to be a part of the project team. Develop a 2-3 page paper (650-750 words) in the form of a Microsoft Word document, not including the header and reference pages, defining the following: 1. How will project communications and interactions work between the project manager, the stakeholders and the project team? 2. What are some of the issues you, as the project manager will need to be concerned about in forming the project team? 3. What, if any, situational factors exist that may affect the project team’s performance? 4. What are some project pitfalls you will want to watch out for as you execute this project?

MGT 402 Module 3 Assignment 2 LASA 1 Project Planning – Developing the Project Plan and Determining Critical Path

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Using the District4WarehouseMove WBS.xls provided, create a project plan for the District 4 Warehouse Move project. Use the PDF document, Project Plan Check – District4Move, to check your work to be sure you have created your starting project plan correctly. ProjectLibre is required for this task. If you have not yet downloaded ProjectLibre, please click here and follow the directions to do so now. Note: you will need to insert a column to include your WBS codes, then you will need to sequence the tasks to show tasks by work package. Based upon the details in the WBS and the project case, determine which tasks need to be completed first and which tasks are dependent upon other tasks to be completed prior to starting. Using this information identify predecessors in your project plan’s predecessor column. Complete the predecessor column by entering the line number of tasks that must be completed in order for each task to start. This will create


your project timeline. Using ProjectLibre's Network or flow diagram view, determine the critical path for this project. In a MS Word document, list the activities that are on the critical path. Considering the risks identified in the risk table below, identify which risks would be most likely to increase your project timeline. Justify your responses. Submit both your completed project plan and your MS Word document.

MGT 402 Module 4 Assignment 2 Project Schedule Changes

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com You have kicked off the District 4 Production Warehouse Move project, your contractors are in place and working on receiving the proper building permits. You originally were told the permits would only take 2 weeks to obtainbut the contractors are telling you it will now take 3 weeks. You


need to build the additional week into your schedule for each permit that will be obtained. In addition, your framing and drywall contractors have just told you they are running late on their other jobs and can only release half their crew for your project. This will double their schedule. Build the extra time into your schedule by doubling the installation work timelines for both the framing and drywall. Your project plan should also be updated with the new 3-week timeline for obtaining permits. Use the project plan you created for this task. You are now looking at an extended project delivery date. Your project sponsor was very clear that you must be done in a 4 month timeframe so you will need to look at options for reducing your schedule to fit into the 4 month window. You have an option of hiring another contractor to help with the framing and drywall work but it will increase your budget by $200,000. Determine your best course of action for bringing this project in on schedule and update your project plan to reflect your recommendation. Develop a 5-6 slide presentation for senior management outlining your proposed solution. You are seeking approval to proceed with your new plan. Submit both your updated project plan and PowerPoint presentation.
