The Question

Instructions: There are no formal page requirements. However, as a general rule of thumb, I would expect to see, on average, at least two pages double spaced for question one and 3/4 page for each for numbers three and four. More than that may be necessary but an eight to ten page exam is the absolute maximum (not title page). On the other hand, be concise and do not incorporate irrelevant material nor expand unnecessarily into the answers unless the content directly builds your arguments. Develop the depth of critical thinking and support answers with reasons and evidence but be logical and concise. Answers should present arguments using the class materials, outside references, formulation and declarations of position statements, and distillation of the primary and fundamental issues, discussing the various possible solutions to the issues raised. Use of citations from a number of sources to support points with matching references in APA format will increase your score. Remember that to list a reference, it must be used in the text as a citation to avoid an APA violation and questions of academic integrity that arise when it is unclear how references were used. In other words, use evidence and logic to build arguments in answers which are well organized and structured to fully answer questions per above.

1.Read the case study ?Maximum Megahertz Project? (Page 549 from:
Larson, E.W. & Gray, C.F. (2010). Project Management: The Managerial Process. Retrieved from http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/fayad/current.courses/cmpe203-fall2013/docs/Articles/Project%20Management%205th%20Edition.pdf.
(70 points for all parts.)
a)What do you think Olaf Gundersen, the CEO of Wireless Telecom Company should do? Use what you know from the case and the course to build the arguments? (The answer will not be graded based on right or wrong but how the arguments are developed.)
b)What are some potential conflicts that could result from the steps in recommended in a? How could you apply change management or conflict avoidance/resolution techniques to avoid or resolve these?
c)Based on what you have learned in this class, what could have been done so that the project problems would have been avoided? (Of course, you do not have complete information but use what is here and what you have learned is best practice in managing projects.) (30 points)
d)Costs and deadlines of the projects escalated in the Maximum Megahertz project. Why are accurate estimates critical to project management? What would you advise Olaf about his problems with estimate? How to develop a process that would result in more realistic estimates?
e)How should Olaf improve project management in his organization?

2.Go back to your discussion post for Week 10 (D?OH). Why did the mistakes you identified occur and cause problems? How can these be resolved? (15 points)
3.Based on what you learned from the class, how do you access your abilities as a project manager? What are your strengths? On what aspects do you need improvement? Do you have an action plan to improve? What steps will or would you take to make these improvements? (15 points)

These questions are intended to provoke in-depth thinking about project management. To

you need to discuss each topic to some depth. As a graduate student, you should be able to

etc. ? in other words to demonstrate integrative and critical thinking.

 

Also please submit as ONE WORD FILE only. Put the honor code and all other items in the

 

same file. Please do not post image, pdf files, Microsoft Project, or two Word files. It is very

 

confusing when grading to figure out what is what with multiple files posted. Requests for
