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.
