A Problem or a Crisis? In this weeks discussion, we are going to differentiate

A Problem or a Crisis? In this weeks discussion we are going to differentiate between a problem and a crisis. Table 8-3 in your textbook will help you with this discussion. For this purpose examine a project that you are familiar with and consider one of the metrics/KPIs used to find something that is either a problem or crisis. We are going to be divided into two groups The members of Group 1 add an initial post to provide an example of a problem and the members of Group 2 add an initial post to provide an example of a crisis. Include examples from your experience and discuss with a project manager or a practitioner to find examples of both in practice. Share your findings with the class and explain your reasoning. Make sure to check through the week to respond to those students who responded to your post.

A project management office (PMO) is designed to support project managers and project teams and can play a significant role in the success rates of projects. Data suggests that when an organization has an effective PMO there is a reduction in project cycle time and a decrease in project failure rate. After reading this weeks resources and doing some research on your own write a short paper describing the PMO function in an organization where you are currently employed or have been employed in the past. (Chapter 3 of your textbook includes a discussion of PMO and is a good reference for completing this assignment.) If you do not have a PMO function in an organization you are familiar with research an organization and write your short paper based on your research.

A LEGAL AND ETHICAL DILEMMA A Legal and Ethical Dilemma Overview Deciding to pla

A LEGAL AND ETHICAL DILEMMA A Legal and Ethical Dilemma Overview Deciding to place a loved one into a long-term care facility can be extremely difficult. Even more difficult is the thought of your loved ones rights being violated while in long-term care. Patient healthcare rights are not as clearly defined as one would expect and there are long-term care and other healthcare facilities that create their own sets of patient rights. However there are also certain indisputable rights afforded to patients across the board. Read the case study titled A Legal and Ethical Dilemma located on pages 463“465 of your text. Next use the Internet or Strayer Library to research information on a patients right to die. Instructions Write a 4“6 page paper in which you: Describe the legal and ethical dilemma discussed in the case study. Analyze the key ways in which a patients right to die relates to this specific case. From your research specify the potential repercussions for failure to comply with the wishes of a patient who has requested to withhold a life-sustaining procedure. Next take a position on whether the patients right to die or the patients right to be protected from harm should take precedence in this case. Provide a rationale for your position. Imagine that you are a part of the ethics committee investigating this case. Determine the main facts pertaining to the issue that the committee should consider. Suggest one step that the facility should take next in order to resolve the dilemma. Provide a rationale for your response. Use at least threequality academic resources.

A funding proposal is used to request funds by providing a compelling case for the proposed project. The main difference is the focus on the goals and objectives of the project feeding into a set of measures for the evaluation of project success. Please share your thoughts? Do you agree that the proposal features a full breakdown of project resources and costs in more detail than usually found in a project brief? Please share your thoughts? In the required resources section the document covers personnel facilities equipment suppliers and budget. Funding covers much more than just people and it is important to include office space furniture computer equipment consumables third-party supplier costs etc. Please share your thoughts? The main objective of the project proposal is to get the client to buy into your services. Thus project proposals are a great way to secure funding win new clients or convince executives to allocate resources to projects. Please share your thoughts?

A cost estimator for a construction company has collected the data found in the

A cost estimator for a construction company has collected the data found in the source file Estimation.xlsx describing the total cost (Y) of 97 difference projects and the following 3 independent variables thought to exert relevant influence on the total cost: total units of work required (X1) contracted units of work per day (X2) and city/location of work (X3). The cost estimator would like to develop a regression model to predict the total cost of a project as a function of these 3 independent variables. a. Prepare two scatter plots showing the relationship between the total cost of the projects and each of the two independent variables (X1 and X2). What sort of relationship does each plot suggest? After data analysis you can find any cell in Excel to write down your interpretation. b. Suppose the estimator wants to use the total units of work required (X1) contracted units of work per day (X2) and city/location of work (X3) as the independent variables to predict total cost. What should be the regression function between Y and X1 X2 and X3? What is the adjusted R-squared value of this model? What conclusions can you make? (Note that X3 is a dummy variable. You should process it into different categories as I showed you in the class lecture. You should expand X3 into Location1 Location 2 ¦. Location 5 to differentiate the six locations.) After data analysis you can find any cell in Excel to write down your interpretation.
