Unit VIII PowerPoint Presentation
MobileGo Project Recovery
The project management office or project office (PMO) is concerned that the MobileGo project is behind schedule and in danger of being late. Assume that a project meeting has been scheduled so that you and your project team can propose a course of action to reduce the project schedule. The PMO has provided your team with project simulation data spreadsheet.
To prepare for this PMO meeting, carry out the following:
1. Analyze the data provided in the spreadsheet, and calculate at least two options for crashing the schedule.
2. Identify likely risks associated with your revised schedule as well as your strategy for their mitigation.
3. Evaluate concerns associated with the motivation of the team given the increase in project complexity, the additional
overtime, and the high-pressure environment that the team is likely to face.
4. Explain the steps you will take as project manager to hold the team together and keep it functioning despite the
Complete the crash calculations and options in a Word or Excel document, and submit it for grading. Additionally, you will create a PowerPoint presentation of at least 10 slides that explains your crash plan as well as your overall plan to successfully lead the team to the finish line.
Use at least one outside source to support your recommendations for improvement. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations following proper APA Style.
You must either use speaker notes or audio to fully explain your slides. Be sure to elaborate in your speaker notes or audio; do not simply repeat the text from your slides.
The application of the APA writing style shall be practical, functional, and appropriate to each academic level, with the primary purpose being the documentation (citation) of sources. CSU requires that students use APA style for certain papers and projects. Students should always carefully read and follow assignment directions and review the associated grading rubric when available. The CSU Citation Guide includes examples and sample papers and provides information on how to contact the CSU Writing Center.
