PROJ 586 All Discussion Questions Week 1 – 7

PROJ 586 Project Management Systems  – DeVry

 

PROJ 586 Week 1 DQ 1 Projects and Project Management

This week, we will learn about project management as a discipline and a little history about the discipline. It is important to understand why projects and project management are important. How have you seen projects used in your company, organization, or personal life? What methods of project management does your company use? Do they work?

PROJ 586 Week 1 DQ 2 Project Selection and Project Charters

As organizations set their business strategy or establish their goals, there are new needs identified. Recognizing organizations may have a number of different needs, there are many projects to consider. How are projects selected? Why do you think it is important to evaluate potential projects before proceeding with implementation? 

PROJ 586 Week 2 DQ 1 (Project Charters and Scope Statements)

Why are the Project Charter and Project Scope Statement artifacts critical to the success of a project? Describe some of the key elements of these artifacts.

PROJ 586 Week 2 DQ 2 Work Breakdown Structure and Resource Assignment

Assume you were appointed as project manager to lead a dozen of your classmates to write up an end-of-course summary guide that would be used to update all areas of the course (i.e. discussion questions, lectures, assignments, quizzes, and exams). You plan to form sub-teams to work each of these elements, each headed by a sub-team leader. How would you setup your WBS? What are some considerations you made when you decided on this structure?

PROJ 586 Week 3 DQ 1 Network Diagrams and Critical Path

This week in the lecture, we are learning about activity dependencies and task durations. Activities in a project are often dependent on the completion of another activity. Those activities can be in the project you are completing or from another project or process. Remember, dependencies can be mandatory or discretionary. Understanding the concept of dependencies will help you build a network diagram to determine the critical path for the project. Why is it critical to the success of the project to understand the critical path? 

PROJ 586 Week 3 DQ 2 Resource Utilization

Managing resources can be an interesting, and sometimes difficult, job. How have you managed resources on any of your projects? What do you find as the most difficult part? How have you learned to overcome these issues? If you haven’t managed a project before, have you ever been a resource on a project? If so, what are some of the techniques your manager(s) use to balance their resources? What seems to be the most effective for you?

PROJ 586 Week 4 DQ 1 Cost Planning

Cost planning starts with the proposal for the project, at which time project costs are estimated. And for budgeting purposes, it is best to keep the work packages or activities small in terms of scope and duration. What are some of the ways that a project manager can take these budgeting plans and track and compare them to actual data? In what sense is some cost reporting not reflective of the actual work performed? How can a project manager remedy this situation?

PROJ 586 Week 4 DQ 2 Earned Value Analysis

Once your budget is planned and allocated across your work packages, it is critical to monitor and control your project’s cost. Why is monitoring and controlling the project cost important for the success of the project? What are some key components to monitor the health of the project, as it relates to earned value? How is earned value management different than straight financial accounting?

PROJ 586 Week 5 DQ 1 Risk Management

This week, we learned about risk management. Now let’s apply our learning to an example. Suppose you are the project manager of a team of software specialists working on a project to produce a piece of application software in the field of accounting. Identify some items that might go wrong during this type of project (i.e., what are some of the risks in this project), and discuss how you, as the PM, would assess and respond to such project risks.

PROJ 586 Week 5 DQ 2 Project Communication

This week, we learned about a communication plan. The first step in building a communication plan is to identify your key stakeholders. How would you identify a key stakeholder? Then, once you have identified that key stakeholder, how would you determine which form of communication to use? Can (and should) you have multiple forms of communication going for each of your key stakeholders? Discuss.

PROJ 586 Week 6 DQ 1 Project Close Out

Why is it considered a best practice to properly close a project? What about a project that is abruptly terminated? What are some good approaches for documenting the entire project? How does this occur?

PROJ 586 Week 6 DQ 2 Selecting an Organizational Structure

Scenario: The hospital has extensive experience and capability in implementing medical systems and has some expertise in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) scanners. It has not ever used one, however. In addition, the hospital has very limited expertise in the facilities and operations of NMR devices. It normally involves five internal departments in the installation of a new system. For this project, the hospital will need to bring in functional experts from five different technical specialties. It will use consulting companies to do this. The technology is very new, and there will be extensive coordination and communication requirements between the five consultants.
What organizational form (Functional, Project, or Matrix) would you recommend to effectively manage a project for a major hospital to evaluate and select a new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) scanner?

PROJ 586 Week 7 DQ 1 Stages of Team Development

There are four stages a team goes through as part of the team development process. Think of a team in which you have participated (project team at work, sport team, etc.). Think back on how the team formed from the first day until the end of the project, or sporting season. Describe what took place. How did you progress into the next stages of team development?

PROJ 586 Week 7 DQ 2 Managing Individual Performance

Interpersonnal Communication (SPEECH) I need done in2 hours !! I prefer an EXPERT

1 NO FLUFF – I want theory application. Edit your work carefully; this is a college level course and college level writing is expected. The entire assignment should not exceed about 2.5 pages.

Follow these directions carefully:

Step #1

You will select one relationship from the media. It may be featured in a film or television show. We see these relationships everyday in the media but this time I want you to be aware of them from a theoretical point of view.

Select one scene or relationship interaction and describe it carefully. You will want to say who the people are, a brief history of their relationship, and anything I need to know about the individuals so I will understand the nuances of the interaction.

Write no more than one half (1/2) page for this section.

Next, you will tell me about the interaction, you know, who said what, how they said it, and so on. You will do this much the way you would tell a buddy about something you observed at a party or in the office the other day, sort of like gossip (not that any of us ever gossip). Don’t leave anything out that would cause me to misunderstand the interaction.

Write no more than one page for this.

Step #2Using these three theories

– Social Exchange Theory

– Relational dialectics theory

– Social Penetration

analyze the relationship interaction, explaining why it “works” or fails to “work.” Remember, this is an exercise in theory and concept application so be sure to apply the theory or concept to the event of the relationship interaction, actually telling how the theory you select explains the interaction you present.

You MUST write the names of the theories or concepts in all caps and bold them.

At a glance, I should be able to see the names of the theories and concepts you applied.

Write no more than one page for this.
