4. How widespread do you think this technology will become? What uses will be garnered from it? Do any of them concern you? It is becoming a widespread technology.

(5 pts) Project Managemement in Practice – The Olympic Torch Relay Project , pgs. 8, questions 1-3 1. Which of the three universal and three common characteristics of projects are displayed in the regular torch relay? Universal characteristics: Unique, one-time occurrence, and finite duration. Common characteristics: Interdependencies, resources, conflict. 2. Since this is such a regular project—every 4 years since 1936— would you consider it a nonproject or a quasi-project? Why or why not? I would consider this a project. Since each relay will not be managed routinely. Since each town or country will have
different complex policies and will only be a one-time event. Therefore, it will need to constantly adapt to the differences. 3. Is the torch relay another part of the Olympics themselves, perhaps a subproject? The Olympics are a program and the torch relay is a project.
