By scheduling overtime you avoid the additional costs of coordination and communication  encountered when new people are added. If people involved are salaried workers, there  may be no real additional costs for the extra work. Another advantage is that there are fewer  distractions   when   people   work   outside   normal   hours.   Overtime   does   however   have  disadvantages.  Hourly  workers are typically  paid  time  and  a half and double  time  for  weekends and holidays. Sustained overtime work by salaried employees may incur tangible  costs such as divorce, burnout, and turnover.  2.

Activities B and H can be shortened to a minimum of 2 weeks.  Which activity would you   shorten to reduce the project duration by 2 weeks?  Why? In order to reduce the project duration by two weeks, I would shorten activity H because it is  located on the project’s critical path. 3. What is the difference between leading and managing a project?     A highly visible, interactive management style is not only essential to building and sustaining
