Project Cost and Time Management

You are working with your team leads to create the project schedule. You are very concerned about the intersections between the teams, so you all are starting with the major milestones, working backward from the new product launch.

Sales of the new product are going to start in nine months and the new CRM system needs to be in place six weeks prior to that so the sales force can get their customer and prospect information entered in time for the big marketing mailing going out three weeks prior to the product being available. You have one team working on the marketing program (and the mailing is just one of their deliverables); this team is being led by Jennifer from marketing. You also have another team working on the CRM implementation, being led by Ben from IT. The two teams will intersect at the sales force trainingâ?"training on the new system, the new product, and the new marketing program. After talking with the sponsor and customers, it was determined that the training approach would be holistic; the marketing process would be taught using the new systemâ?"not two separate classes, but one integrated class. Instructors will come from both the IT and the marketing teams. You are unsure which team leader should be responsible for trainingâ?"it will depend upon the resources and dependencies.

Using the list of tasks below as a starting point, create a schedule by adding tasks, dependencies, efforts, and descriptions of the skills required to complete each task. Also determine the start and end dates based on the dependencies and effort. (Assume your resources have 50% availability to the project). The schedule should contain between thirty and sixty tasks/sub-tasks. Use Microsoft Project, Excel, Word, or any other appropriate tool to document your schedule. You will also need to define the team members you will need. For each team member you will need, create a bulleted list of skills/expertise he/she must have to complete the assigned tasks. For the effort, describe your rationale for your estimate.
