Project Planning and Feasibility Studies

...5. Project Planning and Feasibility Studies Project planning is part of project management, which relates to the use of schedules such as Gantt charts to plan and subsequently report progress within the project environment. Initially, the project scope is defined and the appropriate methods for completing the project are determined. Following this step, the durations for the various tasks necessary to complete the work are listed and grouped into a work breakdown structure. The logical dependencies between tasks are defined using an activity network diagram that enables identification of the critical path. Float or slack time in the schedule can be calculated using project management software. Then the necessary resources can be estimated and costs for each activity can be allocated to each resource, giving the total project cost. At this stage, the project plan may be optimized to achieve the appropriate balance between resource usage and project duration to comply with the project objectives. Once established and agreed, the plan becomes what is known as the baseline. Progress will be measured against the baseline throughout the life of the project. Analyzing progress compared to the baseline is known as earned value management. The inputs of the project planning phase include the project charter and the concept proposal. The outputs of the project planning phase include the project requirements, the project schedule, and the project management plan. Feasibility......

...Renee Jones 12/12/2012 HRM 587 As I was thinking about the two companies that I wanted to do for my course project on, I began to research companies on the internet and I ran across the merger between United and Continental airlines. The reason that I choose to do the merger is because I knew that they were going to go through many changes within this merger. Both airline companies have a lot to offer to each other with this merger that they can compete with Delta airlines one of the largest airline in the world. This merger will bring about several changes within both companies. In this paper I will be providing the different changes between both companies with the merger including the culture, systems and unions. Since they were two different companies this will bring on big changes when they finally merger together. History In In the year of 2008 United Airlines CEO Glenn F. Tilton and Continental Airlines, CEO Jeffrey A. Smisek began to talk about merging both company together in order to become the largest merger ever to take place between two airlines. However, once Continental found out about United Airlines declining financial statues they declined their offer. The talk of United negotiating a merger with US Airways stunned the CEO and board members of Continental Airlines. Predictor stated that United Airlines used this tactic to allure Continent Airline to renegotiate the merger that was discussed in 2008. In 2010 a big announcement was presented......

...Project Management Anita Blakney HRM 520 Dr. Sue Lowe Construct a Cost-Benefit Analysis matrix for an organization that is considering replacing it’s internal payroll system with a payroll outsourcing service. Include direct and indirect revenue enhancements and direct and indirect cost reductions. Cost savings - Smaller organizations using payroll outsourcing company reduce costs by removing the time consuming HR tasks that slow down production. To determine the cost effectiveness of outsourcing payroll, it is important to calculate the number of hours employees spend on payroll related activities and the exact amount being spent. Then compare it with plans offered by outsourcing companies. Increased productivity - Payroll management is an extremely time consuming activity. By using a payroll outsourcing company, the tedious burden of payroll management is removed and employees are able to concentrate on the things they are good at. Reliability – Outsourcing provides the same output speed and quality that is not dependent on holiday time and sick leave from your staff. Assess the risks associated with integrating a new payroll system and suggest what the project management team can do to minimize those risks. Payroll has been a payment of wages, salaries, advantages, allowances as well as other monies associated with the staff working in the public agency. Few agencies are contracting out payroll function, whereas the rest run its individual payroll. Newer......

We will also add medical and life insurance to benefits packages. The new design and pay levels will create job satisfaction among employees while also motivating them to have better job performance. Business case: According to Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart, & Wright (2011), job dissatisfaction can be caused by the task and roles associated with the job and pay and benefits.

Harborco (Environmental Negotiator) -Planning Document

...HARBORCO (ENVIRONMENTAL NEGOTIATOR) - PLANNING DOCUMENT Negotiation: __HARBORCO___________ Role: _ENVIRONMENTAL NEGOTIATOR What issues are most important to you? (list in order of importance) 1. Ecological Impact issues due to the construction of this port. This being the most important because the disruption of ecological settings will begin as soon as construction begins, so no room to try anything else to minimize this effect. 2. The industry mix that Harborco will be allowed to introduce. Even though there are legal limitations, “dirty” industries still cause short and long term havoc on the environment. 3. Voting on other issues strategically. While not trying to antagonize potential allies, an effort needs to be made to have a clear “win” on the issues, in hopes that other constituent environmental groups are impressed by the results and potentially boost contributions to the League. What is your BATNA? Reservation Price? Target? In this situation, it is very important for me to realize that I have a very weak BATNA. The BATNA is a government sanctioned degradation of the environment – Harborco is allowed to build a deepwater port including primarily dirty industries and causing serious damage to the ecology. For this reason, it is going to be very important for me to be able to influence the proposal, if at all it goes through. The target will be for me to convince the members to improve the ecological conditions around this site and......

Evaluation of Planning Projects

...to planning the project Introduction: Planning is a key skill required throughout the life. The purpose of the planning is to find out how the project outcomes will be achieved successfully within both the required quality and timescale. Planning helps to work out the most effective way of reaching your target and prepare to overcome unexpected difficulties in advance. Planning develops the ability to prioritize the tasks. If I did not plan my project I would have not known what tasks I was required to do and what my time limit was, which could have lead ultimately to the failure of the project. The purpose of evaluating my performance in relation to planning is so that I can identify what I did well and what I did not do well. This will help me to carry out better planning in the future I hope that by improving my planning techniques. It will help me in all aspects of my life. Planning techniques used: I used five different techniques to enable me to produce final product. These techniques were action plan, summary action plan, mind maps, Gantt chart and critical path. These are techniques used by professional companies for their planning. The techniques I used were generally effective and helped me to a number of tasks and a final product by the final deadline with required quality. Action plan: To plan my project, first of all I and the other people in the group read the brief and identified the tasks that we would be required to do complete the project we...

...Assignment 1: Planning Document S. Rivers HRM 517 – Managing Human Resource Projects 1. Construct a project charter to revamp the compensation and benefits package. Since recently being appointed head of human resources and now in charge of managing a small team; I have a huge task ahead of myself. My next project in regards to this appointment is to revamp the compensation and benefits package employees are receiving at my company. Employee compensation and benefits are extremely critical and important factors in the new hire acceptance process, as well as, employee retention. It is my duty along with my team to revamp, develop and offer exceptional compensation and benefit packages that attract and retain the best and most talented employees while making them feel proud, valued and as appreciated members of the company. A company’s fundamental purpose and objective of compensation is to provide adequate and equitable rewards to employees at a level that matches theirs skills, abilities and contributions to the company (DeNisi, Angelo S., Griffin, Ricky W., 2008, p. 284. Para. 1). Compensation is the human resource management function that deals with every type of reward that individuals receive in return for performing work – including financial and nonfinancial rewards. Financial rewards include direct payments (e.g. salary) plus indirect payments in the form of employee benefits. Nonfinancial rewards include everything in a work environment that......

...Planning Document Dr. Bagwell HRM 517-Managing Human Resource Projects Strayer University August 2012 Construct a project charter to revamp the compensation and benefits package. Title: New Beginnings for the improvement of Human Resource Functions Scope Overview: The New Beginnings project is to introduce a new and more efficient way of handling Human Resource functions to the company. The outsourcing of payroll systems and increasing the number of benefits the employees have access to will increase the morale of the company and decrease the current amount of stress associated with both. By changing the ways in which this team handles compensation and benefits packages to the current employees, this will give the team and employees more time to focus on more pressing issues. The new design of the payroll system is one that will save the company money and the personnel time. The latest benefits packages that are being offered to the staff, will change their lives for the better and make the company’s dealings with the vendors more constructive. The current systems being used for both compensation and the use of benefits packages is out dated and needed to be more accessible to all affected parties, more time efficient, technologically advanced with the times of modern communications, and needed to decrease time spent on the tasks and increase the productivity of both employees submissions and human resource personnel.
