Managers at Manage Your Health, Inc. (MYH) selected Jack Straw as the project manager for the Recreation and Wellness Intranet Project. The schedule goal is six months, and the budget is $200,000. Jack has previous project management and systems analysis experience within the company, and he is an avid sports enthusiast. Jack was starting to put the project team together. He knew he would have to develop a survey to solicit input from all employees about the new system and make sure it was user-friendly.
Recall from Applied Activity 1 that this system would include the following capabilities:
Allow employees to register for company-sponsored recreational programs, such as soccer, softball, bowling, jogging, and walking.
Allow employees to register for company-sponsored classes and programs to help them manage their weight, reduce stress, stop smoking, and manage other health-related issues.
Track data on employee involvement in these recreational and health-management programs.
Offer incentives for people to join the programs and do well in them (e.g., incentives for achieving weight goals, winning sports team competitions, etc.).
Assume that MYH would not need to purchase any additional hardware or software for the project. Team members include you, a programmer/analyst and aspiring project manager; Perez, a network specialist; Naomi, a business analyst; and Bristol, another programmer/analyst. Other people are supporting the project from other departments, including Ahmed from human resources and Collette from finance. Assume that these are the only people who can be assigned and charged to work on project activities. Recall that your schedule and cost goals are to complete the project in six months for under $200,000.
