Provide a classmate review on their discussion topic :
The document attached is part of the FAA research project portfolio. The project plan described here pertains to a human factors research project. Review this document, and consider the project management strategy employed. Note the terminology used; for example, the lifecycle phases are called stages.
Based on your studies in this class assess this project plan strategy. Does this project plan contain all the parts (phases) you would expect to find in a well-planned project? What is defined well, and what is not? Overall, does this project plan strategy appear to be based on the project management principles you have studied?
Classmate post that you need to post comment/ review on:
Project management is constructed around several processes, including planning, execution, monitoring and control, and closure. Each project proceeds sequentially through these stages. These fundamental techniques are repeated frequently, and then knowledge categories or intelligence are dissected. The research project plan outlines the project management phases that should include in any well-planned project. Regardless of terminology changes, it must state the mission objectives at every phase of the project. According to what lessons learned in this course, a project strategy can make or ruin a project. A well-thought-out plan will guide teams from start to finish, whereas a hastily put together one can lead to confusion, wasted time and resources, and a significant problem later on.
Any action or effort should begin with the goal of completing it successfully. Whereas To accomplish this, the project’s Aims and Objectives must be defined. Meanwhile, the project’s goal must be clearly outlined and communicated in writing, along with the priorities of the “shareholders.” and how it will be attained are clarified by describing the project’s vision and aim. Even though the project’s stages are outlined, I must address certain ambiguous areas. The project did not clearly express its goals and objectives with clear solutions and plans for risk mitigations. The financial forecast was also vague and did not specify how much was allocated from the FAA budget. The project cost is a critical component for maintaining the balance: vague time and schedules with time frames such as three years out inputs. At the same time, keep in mind that the project’s result should be developing and implementing human factors policies, laws, programs, and procedures that increase the safety and productivity of the National Airspace System (NAS).
Furthermore, during the execution phase, the project manager’s leadership role appeared partially managed by the sponsors, and communication between stakeholders does not reflect management efficacy. Other issues, such as the scope lacking the team performance to schedule and review the final product, are recommended. Overall the plan strategy can easily lead this project into confusion.
