Case Study Exercise
The incidents described in this case study
are typical of the types of things that happen in real-life projects. They are
a reflection of peoples' attitudes and the way they do things. Perhaps they do
not all happen on the same project. Yet the reality is that if project sponsors
do not start out with an understanding of project management and its processes,
the probability of these kinds of happenings are quite high! One of the best
ways of learning is from mistakes „ preferably from those of other people.
The focus of this case study centers on construction.
However, the project has served to bring to light many of Woody's management
short-comings and the need for change. Can you spot the real source of the problems
and what needs to be done to fix them?
Your task is to show how you would run this
project properly from the beginning.
