Project Management Questions Paper
Otha Hayes

What is meant by an integrative project management process and why is this so important? What are the pitfalls if such an approach is not taken?

Integrated Project management is the fusion of scheduling, resourcing, costing,

Earned value, accounting, performance measurement, and risk attributes of a project.

The pitfalls of not taking this approach is, without using this type of approach your

project will not be properly planned and fail to meet project goals, as well as project

deadlines. Integrated project management is necessary for any project to be

successful. More than anything, the integrative project management process is a state

of mind for completing your project.

What are some of the characteristics that differentiate projects from other functions carried out in the daily operations of an organization? List some examples of work considered to be a project and work not considered to be a project.

One of the most important steps in differentiating a project from other functions of daily

operations, is that you need to first establish the objective that you are trying to meet. You must

then set a plan to establish how long the project will take to complete, and well as which

personnel and departments that will be involved. If a project is the first of its kind, and has never

been done before, it will obviously differentiate from what has been done in the past. The

performance requirements, and cost should also be specified at the beginning of each project. An

presentation. The paper that I am submitting now, can be considered a project. Doing everyday

...Trends in management education point towards a paradigm shift in as far as the tendency in rise in applications amidst an improving economy is concerned. Ruchi Chopda brings you the details Unlike historically, when MBA applications trend countercyclical to economic conditions, this year, data collected by Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) suggests a significant change from previous post-recession patterns. Even as the global economy shows signs of recovery, applications to MBA programmes are rising after a slump of three years. According to the 2012 Application Trends Survey, 51 per cent of graduate business and management programmes surveyed confirmed receiving more applications than last year. Though the growth is displayed in applications across a variety of programme types, including part-time, online as well as specialised master's degrees, it has majorly been fuelled by application gains among online and distance courses. Region-wise, programmes in Asia-Pacific and Central Asia reported the strongest growth in volumes for full-time MBA programmes. Ashish Bhardwaj, regional director, South Asia, GMAC, elaborates, "Looking at different regions of the world, 32 per cent of full-time two-year MBA programmes in the US reported application increases, 37 per cent in Europe reported application increases, 80 per cent of all MBA programmes in China reported application increases and 83 per cent of all MBA programmes in India reported application increases.......

...Projects Objective: Kaiser Permanente would like to rollout a new companywide compliance system. They are requiring at least 10 hours of on hands training for all of their managers across the country. By the end of their training the managers will have learned the new platform as well as the new policies that were introduced to them. The goal is to have a set location that all managers from across the country will meet at for their training. All traveling expenses will be paid by Kaiser Permanente. The CEO Bernard Tyson will be provided a compilation of the feedback from every manager that participated in the training. Mr.Tyson will then use this information to evaluate how effective the training was. Project Scope: Will have 30 days to book all of the fights, hotels, order catering, and book a central location for the training. This gives the managers enough time to work their schedule around these training sessions, as most of the managers will be flying in from other states across the country. Tasks: * We need to obtain a list of all of the managers attending the training. * Book a flight a hotel package for each of the managers based on their location. * Researching a catering company that will provide both breakfast and lunch. * Give each of the managers a $60 gift card to help pay for their dinners and any other minor expenses. * Set a date for the trainings to begin and end. * Set an agenda for the trainings sessions such as what is to...

Ppr Review

...Arrival Wednesday 7 Jan 15 On our arrival at Kansai Airport, Osaka around 7 o clock with accompanied by Professor Naoki Ohshima, we experienced a nice weather but a little bit cold with temperature around 4-5 degree Celsius. Luckily, all students had prepared themselves with warm clothes. From there we had moved to Hiroshima for another 4 hours by express bas. Our first impression of Japan since arriving were the cleanliness and living cost is very high in Japan. It was very hard to find any kind of rubbish and waste in every corner. This shown that Japanese people are very high disciplined and civilized people. The dustbins prepared with certain categories such as for plastic, bottle and can as well as the others. For high living cost, we can take an example a set of lunch meals. It might cost us Yen 1000 equal to almost RM30 means that in general living cost in Japan almost triple times higher than in Malaysia. Second thing, which gave us unforgettable memory, was the delicious foods. Even we can easily find Halal Foods especially for Muslim students. Thursday 8 Jan 15 Mazda Museum and Factory Visit On second day, we had visited MAZDA, one of the biggest Japanese carmaker. We had experienced a tour on Mazda Museum where we had learned about the history of MAZDA since the beginning 1920. From its history also explained about the fallen and raised again after Atomic Bombing and so on. Latest production vehicles, exhibitions on Engineering......

...Project Proposal Insert Name CMGT 410 BUSINESS MEMO IT TRAINING OUTLINE INTRODUCTION: There must be a methodology that has to be followed for training and a strategy must be developed along with that methodology. For these two aspects to be successful, training resources must not be wasted. To assure that resources will not be undermined, a number of issues will have to be addressed. The company policies, infrastructural issues, and cultural issues within the company may all need to be noted before a well oiled training session can take place. It is, however, important to note that no matter the schema chosen for training, the path needs to be clear for the users. The training that the users will require will rely of their background, the purpose of the training, features of the system, any types of new user interfaces, etc. This project is an outline for a presentation given by a mixture of HR and IT professionals, streamlining company policy and procedures, for a company-wide compliance system. The training will be implemented by the head office, with training to be conducted in a central location. This will be conducive to all the other satellite offices, making them easily reached by the managers that will be attending the training sessions. Training will be located on the Main Office location, to minimize training costs. The training will be divided over two days, each having one, 5 hour training period.

...ADT Inventory Management Solutions ADT provides commercial and residential digital security, fire, and alarm monitoring services in over 35 countries. The organization has earned a large market share to the point where they cannot facilitate all of their customers’ needs. According to ADT (2013), the company’s official website states that, “ADT has been protecting America for over 135 years, and lead the industry in experience and guarantees”. The current inventory management system in place requires managers to manually-count products as they come in, store the product in any space available, and search specific products when needed. The shipping and receiving systems do not communicate with the inventory system, which causes issues when it comes to getting customers what they need in a timely manner. The Inventory Management System Project will outline the objectives and constraints within the project. The project charter is a tool used to improve the project management process, and defines the process used to provide solutions to business problems. The primary beneficiaries of the solutions developed through this project are: • Stakeholders • End Users Purpose of the Project Currently the organization is having issues regarding tracking inventory, shipping and receiving, and maintaining inventory levels.
