Week 8 Discussion 1
“Project Management and the Cycle Plan” Please respond to the following:
- Analyze the roles of the sponsor and the manager in project management. Select the role that you believe is more critical to the success of the project and explain why.
- Compare the project evaluation and review technique (PERT), the critical path method (CPM), and the Gantt chart. Determine whether projects should apply all three approaches or only when called upon to assess risk on an ongoing project. Support your rationale.
Week 8 Discussion 2
- Examine the activities in the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Select the activities that you believe to be the most critical for the success of a project that is developed using SDLC. Support your position.
- From this week’s videos, determine which conversion methods (parallel, pilot, phased, and plunge) you would apply for the implementation phase of an SDLC if you were managing a project. Support your rationale.
