The Seitz Huntsville Plant Expansion project is a large project with a budget of $2.75M and an aggressive timeline of eighteen months. Janet Clark, the PM for Seitz Huntsville project seems very committed to the project success. She has the support of the board of directors, the company and the project sponsor. Additionally she has access to resources and technology (including others strategy plans) to get the south plant completed. Steve Pokorski, the VP of Operations, and Joe Downs, the Director of Plant Engineering, were also asked to help Janet make the project a success. J ANET S S TRATEGY Mark Green, the project sponsor, has asked Janet to form the project articles before proceeding with the project. Janet’s approach is to convert her task list to the following: Project Charter Scope Statement WBS Janet had already created a task list so this was easy to build a WBS.

When the steps of project creation are skipped, it puts the whole project in jeopardy. A charter document is used to communicate between the project team, the stakeholder, and the company about the project. It is the groundwork of the project and basically gives the PM the ability to influence the project team. After creating the Project Charter and seeking approval from the Board of Directors, Janet could have used her influence to get help from the plant’s Director and VP.

Janet should have sought their involvement and respected their position by asking THEM to help with relocating employees to Huntsville. Instead, Janet most likely made some political enemies by disregarding their positions (and influence) and assuming that the project would entice employees to move.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
