Discussion Board 2: Project Management Case Study Part I
For this discussion board, read the attached case study that provides real-world context for the important project management concepts we have discussed in class the past three weeks. Reflecting on these concepts address the following questions in your initial discussion post (note: these questions differ from those found at the end of the case study document).
As noted in the case study, Samantha believes that project management methodologies and tools such as estimating techniques, planning tools, PM software, risk assessments, and communication plans would largely solve the issues that Global Green Books is facing. Based on what you have learned so far in this course, how do you believe that these practices will help the company overcome its current challenges? If you were hired as a project manager for Global Green Books, are there any other practices that you would recommend in addition to what Samantha suggests, and how could they be effective? As always, please support your recommendations with academic/professional resources in addition to the textbook.
Your initial thread to this post should be 400 – 500 words long and include at least two recent (in the last five years) academic and or professional references in addition to the textbook. Please use APA formatting for headings, in-text citations, and references. You do not need to include a title page or abstract.
