Successful Project Management Skillsâ€‹
You have looked at
many elements that affect the success of a project. Ensuring that
projects comply with the existing mission and values of a company
and that the appropriate strategy is used in determining what
projects should be pursued are a couple of these techniques. To
help you refine your plan to help the management at UPI better
align projects with corporate values and structure, and to limit
the projects assigned to employees, you enlist your peer network
from your masterâ€™s program at your school. Through a series of
questions, you and your peers will address key issues and offer
insights and suggestions for solving the problems at UPI.
Consider the challenge
of managing people and projects and respond to the following
1. Give two examples of organizational changes that you think
should be implemented at UPI through project management. What is it
about your two suggestions that can most benefit UPI?
2. Suggest how you should go about gaining the trust of
employees on your team and learning about management and the
corporate culture. Is it ethical to use employees for information
to help you implement your plan, which could be termed a personal
agenda? Why or why not?
