Seitz Corporation

See attached case study.

Write an essay that fully answers the following questions.

1. From the case study above: "After quickly reviewing some of her old project management books, she discovered that the project charter was typically written by the project sponsor. Since she had already created a task list, she decided to build her charter based on the task list and seek approval on it. Then, she determined to build her scope statement based on the charter. Last of all, she decided to use her task list as her WBS."

? Do you think Janis should pursue this course of action?
? Do you see any potential problems with it?
? What would you do to minimize any potential problems with this course of action?

2. Discuss any potential conflicts between Clark, Downs and Pokorski.
? Identify the effect these conflicts may have on the project,
? And (most importantly), how they might be resolved.

Your paper should be readily understood by the executive management of this project; in other words do not repeat the questions, use headings to denote the topics.

Support your analysis with properly formatted in-text citations and references from the textbook, PMBOK, library journals, or other juried sources (Wikipedia, discussions, blogs, and other unsubstantiated sources are not appropriate for academic purpose).

Your paper should include a cover sheet and a reference page. Remember to use APA format, double-spacing, one inch margins, 12-point Arial font.

No, the project charter not only encompasses the scope of the project but also the objectives, and participants in the project. It is the responsibility of Mark Green to specify what her responsibilities will be and the support that she will receive from Downs and Pokorski. Writing the charter herself means less potential involvement of Mark Green and potentially less support from the board when a conflict with Downs and Pokorski emerges (1).
