Hello All

 

In this week’s discussion were asked to identify the four major steps in making a decision. Next, we’re asked to consider

the following “We should brainstorm and then critique each other’s ideas” from another coworker.

First, let’s identify the steps according to the web text

1. Identifying problems.

2. Generating alternatives

3. Reaching a decision.

4. Following up.

In my experience, the more brains the better, sometimes you won’t have all the answers that’s where a team comes in. There has to

be a situation that a team member or another coworker has experienced before and they could provide a different solution. I’ll give you an

example of a situation at work where our team had a hard time with a problem and where we often “We should brainstorm and then critique

each other’s ideas” off each other in most situations. Before I came into the picture, a group of 5 diesel techs couldn’t figure out a fuel stage

issue with one of our test engines. I’ll keep it short but here was the problem before I came in, the engine started, ran, and shut down during

the second stage of warm-up. They identified the problem, generated alternatives, reached a decision, and followed up with the same result.

When I entered the situation, they filled me in with what was going on and what they had already done before I got there. In our line of work,

this is pretty standard and we all know the drill however, we rarely run into second-stage fuel issues. After evaluating everything that has been

done, the engine shouldn’t have any issues, but I had one more suggestion replace the fuel pump. They criticized me for considering this because

it wouldn’t have started if it was a bad fuel pump, much less go through the warm-up and stage 1. Since this was the last resort, we changed it,

and it completed the stage. This was my example of brainstorming and bouncing ideas off each other.

Week 9 discussion

our project sponsor is not familiar with earned value management (EVM). You have been asked to provide him with a quick overview of EVM. Using the information covered in the readings, suggest the top three EVM performance measures (some may also be indexes) on which you would educate your project sponsor. Explain what each measure tells the project manager. Also, identify other performance factors beyond EVM that you would communicate to your sponsor. Provide a rationale for your selection of topics.
