Project Overrun, pgs. 345-346
- At what stage of the Green Company project should the Project Manager determine the schedule and budget was out of scope and required renegotiation to provide production on time and within budget?
- Why was the Functional Manager unable to execute the required documents obtaining federal requirements? What type(s) of delay in production were caused by this incidence?
- Why was communication a problem with the functional employees in the Green Company project?
- Business owners need planning and organizing skills, along with the ability to analyze, communicate, budget, staff, and deliver contractual obligations. Projects are temporary and unique which create a product or service that does not currently exist. Therefore, what types of risks did the Functional and Project Managers incur because of the lack of costs overruns?
Third person writing is required. Third person means that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (second person writing). If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-third-person.
