Currently, you are managing a large IT project in the healthcare industry for XYZ. Your project is to refurbish an existing office building, install the IT infrastructure, and outfit the area for use as a new telephone answering hub for your company. You took over this project a week ago from John, the previous project manager. John had overseen the project since its inception. This project is in the execution phase, with the refurbishing and installation of the infrastructure currently being done in concert with each other. All of the new office equipment is on order and is scheduled for delivery on the day after the refurbishment and infrastructure work are scheduled for completion. The overall work progress is about three quarters finished. Senior management is pleased with the progress of the project so far. There are four vendors working with you on the project. Ken's Construction Company is handling all the refurbishment. This work includes all structural work, drywall, and electrical work in the building. Jaime's Interior Design is doing the carpeting, painting, and cubicle work. Carolyn's IT Services is installing all IT components, including servers, IT cabling, and a wireless network. Mike's Office Equipment is providing all desks, computers, and phones. All contracts associated with this project are fixed-price contracts. Since taking over for John, you have had a number of contractual issues arise associated with this project. You have delayed making any decisions about these issues, hoping they would work themselves out. Today, a third contractual issue was brought to your attention. Realizing you can no longer postpone action on these issues, you call a meeting of your project team. You project team is made up of three individuals. Iris is the future manager of the telephone hub. Tony is the IT lead on the project. Phil is the facility specialist assigned to your team. You describe each of the three issues to the team and ask for input. 1. Ken's Construction Company is making a claim that it is not responsible for inspections required by the local township. Ken has produced a memo signed by John during negotiations that states that XYZ is responsible for all permits and inspections. However, a quick review of the contract shows that Ken is responsible for allinspections. Failure to resolve this issue will likely delay the project at least 1 week, because Ken is making no effort toward arranging for the required inspections. 2. Jaime’s Interior Design has brought to you another issue. In the contract, under the section labeled Special Conditions, it states that carpeting must meet a specific wear rating. In the same contract, in the General Conditions section, the contract prohibits the use of any nongeneric materials within the work of the contract. This would include carpets with special wear rating, because these would be nongeneric materials. Jaime has already purchased and begun the installation of the generic carpet that does not meet the wear rating. 3. Mike's Office Equipment has informed you of a minor typographic error in the contract with you to provide office equipment for this project. In the contract, it states Mike shall be paid as follows. $425,000 (Four hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars) Mike apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused and is awaiting the payment of $425,000. The company further states $425,000 would have not likely even begun to cover the shipping costs. Mike informs you that it will ship the office equipment when the remainder of its fee is received. After receiving this information from Mike, you priced out the cost of the office equipment from other vendors and the average price was $50,000. Your Role As the project manager, the project team is looking to you for direction on each of these issues. Review the comments of the key players, consult the grading rubric below and then answer the following questions. 1. Is Ken or is XYZ responsible for the inspections? What is a reasonable course of action given that the project may have to be delayed a week or more? 2. What carpet should be installed? Should work be stopped to evaluate this issue? What do you do to resolve this? 3. How much is owed to Mike? What actions would you take as the project manager? Preview: In this case, the author is appointed the project manager for XYZ Pharmaceutical Company’s IT project. Its management of the project was handed down to the author from John who oversaw the project’s development from its inception. In particular, the project is for the refurbishment of an existing office building and… PM 598 You Decide Week 6 Keller http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-you-decide-week-6-keller/ Scenario Summary In this exercise, you play the role of Shawna, a project manager for ZAP Pharmaceutical Company.

PM 598 Discussions Week 1-7 All Students Posts 576 Pages Keller http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-discussions-week-1-7-all-students-posts576-pages-keller/ PM 598 Procurement Process Discussions 1 Week 1 All Students Posts 39 Pages Keller What experience do you have in procurement? In the PMBOK® Guide, we find a four-process method to performing procurement in an organization. Is this overall process used at your place of business? How are procurements performed at your place of business? P Cards are very interesting tools. Have you ever heard of one mis-using a P Card? I know that many companies avoid using them because they feel that people will abuse them or use them incorrectly. I am not sure I agree with that thinking but I have seen it. Do you feel that being part of the process helps the overall organization? What do you think? Do you feel that we tend to over plan things in projects?... http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-procurement-process-discussions-1-week-1keller-2/ PM 598 Roles and Responsibilities Discussions 2 Week 1 All Students Posts 40 Pages Keller In the procurement process, the roles and responsibilities of the project team members need to be delineated to ensure proper contract performance. Where and how does your organization separate the roles of a contract manager, project manager, and other project team members? Why is this so important to a successful project? Should the role of contract manager be rolled into that of a project manager? What about for a small project? Do you feel that there would be enough work for a contract manager? What do you think? What should the role of a project manager be in the overall process of procurement?... http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-roles-and-responsibilities-discussions-2week-1-keller/ PM 598 Procurement Process and Roles and Responsibilities Discussions Week 1 All Students Posts 79 Pages Keller http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-discussions-week-1-keller/ PM 598 Make-or-Buy Discussions 1 Week 2 All Students Posts 48 Pages Keller The plan procurement process from the PMBOK ® Guide really begins with a make-or-buy decision. What are some things an organization should take into account during a make-or-buy decision? Why are these important? Under what situations should an organization make or supply a service itself versus buying it? What are your thoughts about losing the in-house expertise that one might have by buying instead of making? Is cost the most important concernwhen performing a make-or-buy decision? Why or why not? What other aspects should a company consider? Should proprietary issues, such as copyrights, trademarks, and patents, be considered when making a make-or-buy decision?... http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-make-or-buy-discussions-1-week-2keller/ PM 598 Procurement SOW Discussions 2 Week 2 All Students Posts 47 Pages Keller One of the most important outputs from the plan procurement process is the procurement statement of work (SOW). Who should write the SOW? How detailed should it be? Why is this important? What role does the project manager play in the creation of the procurement SOW? How does the Project Manager know that the SOW is clear and complete? What should the project manager do to make sure that it is clear and complete? What are terms and conditions? What role do they play in a contract?... http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-procurement-sow-discussions-2-week-2keller/ PM 598 Make-or-Buy and Roles and Procurement SOW Discussions Week 2 All Students Posts 95 Pages Keller http://www.hiqualitytutorials.com/product/pm-598-discussions-week-2-keller/ PM 598 Contract Types Discussions 1 Week 3 All Students Posts 44 Pages Keller Using alternatives specified in the PMBOKÂŽ Guide, discuss what kind of contract pricing might be best for the following procurement situations.
