Case Study #2: Assignment Questions

As a professional project manager, you have been requested by both legal representatives to conduct a Post-Project Review. Bear in mind that you are acting independently, may be asked to give evidence, and must reflect strict impartiality.

  1. How would you set about conducting such a review?
  2. How would you structure your report, i.e. on what basis?
  3. Would you need to seek expert advice and, if so, in what areas?

Specific issues you have been asked to include:

  1. Would the assignment of an ACME project manager have made a difference?
  2. If so, in what way, and what specific skills would that manager have required?

If you had not been acting impartially, but on behalf of ACME alone:

  1. What advice would you give to ACME?
  2. In a similar way, what advice would you give to Arbor?
