ALL TEMPLATES ARE ADDED. I AM IN C-SUITE GROUP
- Project management is often a team effort. In order to successfully lead change, you must be able to cooperate and communicate with the rest of the IT team. This learning team assignment is meant to simulate a project stakeholder meeting.
Split your learning team into two assigned groups; one will play the role of IT team members, and one will play the role of c-suite level managers.
Each group should read their specific Role Information document prior to the project stakeholder meeting (your group discussion):
- Role Information – IT Group
- Role Information – C-Suite Group
- In your learning team, role-play the following fictional scenario using the information in your Role Information document to ensure your group’s needs are met with the ultimate decision on the scope, budget, and timeline.
The C-suite at Intuit, Inc. wants to convert their system to a cloud-based system in a 12-month project with a budget of $1,000,000. As either an IT team member or a c-suite level manager, you have been appointed to the Cloud-Based Applications Project Team. Conduct a project stakeholder meeting to determine the project scope, budget, and timeline for converting the company’s system to a cloud-based system. Include at least 4 milestones in your timeline. One person from the IT group should facilitate the conversation.
The cost-benefit analysis spreadsheet contains two tabs. The first tab allows you to input budget in each category. The second tab will automatically transfer numbers from the first tab and calculate summary, accumulated cost, and accumulated benefit; and plot a graph. The intersect point between the accumulated cost and accumulated benefit will give you a break-even period of the project.
Submit the team assignment.
