Differentiate the key assessment metrics in achieving an operational project plan.

Instructions

Presently, your multinational organization uses steel at locations across the U.S. and globally with operations in Mexico, Russia, India, and China. Your boss is tasked with developing a global Request for Proposal (RFP) for gathering and comparing steel suppliers. In preparation for his RFP, he has tasked you with building an internal data collection tool to identify key questions to include within the RFP. The purpose of your survey is to identify all key information that is needed for the RFP, and the data collection tool will be sent to managers across the U.S. and globe. The data collection tool is a survey administered through email. Furthermore, the tool must contain a maximum of 10 questions and include the following:

  • Cost
  • Volume
  • Locations
  • Safety

Your job is to develop the project plan for the execution of the data collection tool. The project plan needs to include milestones, key events associated with creating an RFP, and corresponding dates. The time allotment from start to finish for this project by your boss is three months. Additionally, standard templates need to be built that support the project plan, including an action list, meeting minutes, and a risk management tool.
