Week 8 assignment – revised project

 

This is the second of three assignments. The project sponsor has approved the project schedule and communication matrix. It is now time to execute the project.

Instructions

Write a 3–4 page paper that addresses the following concerns from the project sponsor:

Step 1: The sponsor would like a summary of your project.

  • Summarize your project to date, including a message regarding the completion and implementation of the Communication Plan & Project Schedule.
  • Note: Do not repeat your introduction from the first assignment to avoid a high Safe Assign percentage.

Step 2: The sponsor is now asking for a report with not a lot of details.

  • Explain to the sponsor why a milestone report might be a more useful report and discuss at least three milestones for the project.

Step 3: The sponsor is confused about the communication plan completed earlier and is questioning its effectiveness.

  • Explain the format and content of the communication matrix and how it is being used to enhance communications among stakeholders.
  • Note: Chapter 4 in the course textbook discusses communication plans.

Step 4: As the project moves further into the execution process, conflict among stakeholders becomes more evident, and the project manager needs to address it. A good project manager understands that there are two types of conflict to be on the lookout for – functional and dysfunctional.

  • Explain the differences between functional conflict and dysfunctional conflict. Provide examples.

Step 5: Now, let us assume that the communications among team members continued to deteriorate to the point where some team members were authorized to work virtually from remote locations. Now that some team members are working virtually, new communication issues have surfaced.

  • Discuss tips for alleviating communication problems and enhancing the performance of virtual teams, while reassuring the sponsor that the situation is under control.
  • Note: Refer to Chapter 11 in the course textbook.

This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left-hand menu of your course. Be sure to include a cover page. Note: the cover page is not included in the 3–4 page count requirement. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:

  • Revise a project plan so that it addresses reporting, stakeholder communication, and conflict management.
