Project #77363 - CMGT/410 Project Planning & Implementation (5 Weeks of Assignments, Big $$$)

Week 1 Assignment BELOW DUE in 48 HOURS

Consider the following scenario:

You have been hired by a large company with branch offices around the country to assist with rollout of a new companywide compliance system.

While initially the focus was on implementation of the technology, it was found that success will require at least 10 hours of training for all managers across the country on both the use of the new platform as well as a host of new compliance policies being introduced.

Of the options discussed, it was generally agreed than the training should be hands-on and conducted in person at a central location. This will obviously require getting organizational buy in as not all managers are going to be willing to commit to taking time out from their normal responsibilities just for some training.

In addition, such large scale centralized training has not been done before by this company; therefore, the CEO wants feedback from participants to evaluate the effectiveness of any training sessions.

As a result, your manager has given you the responsibility to develop an outline for a proposed project that would meet this upcoming need.

Submit a 2- to 3-page memo that does the following:

  • Names the project
  • Briefly describes the project
  • Identifies potential stakeholders directly or indirectly involved
  • Specifies the overall objective and any outcomes for this project
  • Details how success will be evaluated
  • Highlights what is needed to ascertain the measurable organizational value (MOV) of this project.

You will need to make some assumptions (it is even encouraged) but the assumptions must be documented.
