You begin by familiarizing yourself with the plan and schedule created by the project manager you are replacing. You also review his working notes on estimating, risk management, stakeholder management and the project status as of his last day on the job. You meet the president and three principal stakeholders and see the emails they wrote the president, which led to the project manager’s termination.
Using the methodology you learn about in the lecture and reading assignment, you revise the plan, scope and major deliverables. Then you prepare a presentation of the revised plan to the senior management to gain their acceptance and approval. This is a live interactive meeting with your instructor. He will play the roles of the executives in the case and ask you questions about your plan.
