PROJ 420 Week 6 Discussion Question 1 – Implementation - Discussion Graded An A

Document Content and Description Below

Risk Response Implementation (Week 6) Expert Judgement Expert judgement is a term that refers to a technique where judgement is based on the criteria that can be given by one or multiple membe... rs of our team, or our team leader or leaders. These techniques are important because the outcome should always be to produce results that can be a type of “product, service, or a specific response to supplied input” (Alby, 2019). The primary goal of an expert judgement is to produce a desired result with the techniques that are given. Along with the techniques, the results will vary based on what the customer’s needs, and desires are. Expert judgement needs expertise when specific members are not included in our group. These outside members should have the resources and knowledge that is needed. For example, outside members with needed skills that may be needed can include stakeholders, customers, equipment, and materials that may come in handy. Having experts outside of our project team to help assist with the work will ensure that the correct players are at the table. These experts are included and drawn in because of their specialized knowledge and training, these are referred to as subject matter experts. For example, having experts that can address any regulations issues involved will assist in the project running smoothly. Additional experts to have involved could be fans, having those that attend games at the stadium on a regular basis would give us insight on what the fans are looking. In addition, the PMBOK® Guide references the following as some of the knowledge a subject matter expert would have (Rowley, 2018): • Technical knowledge related to your industry and specifically to your project • Cost and budget management • Legal and/or regulatory matters • Organizational governance Interpersonal and Team Skills Interpersonal and team skills are important to a successful project. We are required to communicate and interact with not only our coworkers but also suppliers, customers and others. One's ability to not only communicate effectively but also interact with others will ensure that one’s project runs smoothly (“Interpersonal skills”, n.d.). Interpersonal skills are considered soft skills. These soft skills “allow project managers to build morale, motivate workers and manage conflict” (Norman, 2016). Project managers should always have interpersonal skills to help with their team’s achievements. Some of these skills include “team building, decision making, motivation, communication, and leadership” (Simplilearn. (2019). One important skill to have is team building. Team building is needed because we are working as a team and it is important that we have collaboration within the team. As the team works together it will ensure that the project is completed. As a project manager, it is important to have strong decision-making skills because there can be a point in time where one decision leads to success for our overall project. Success can also be led by motivation. Motivation is also a key factor for interpersonal skills because it combines communication and leadership skills together to create a successful project overall. Communication is key in any project. A project manager that has good communication skills will be able to help its team to understand what the scope of their assignment is and assist in solving any problems. This is a skill that can be learned and should not be taken for granted, one can benefit from taking time each day to explore what the team needs and converse with them. By listening to the team and the experts involved with the project it will allow for a smoother process (Norman, 2016). Leadership is the ability to inspire and motivate the team as necessary. Leadership is important in order to communicate the organization's vision clearly and succinctly. An additional skill that a project manager will need is that of negotiation. Negotiation allows a project manager to effectively reach agreements with not only their crew members but also any contractors. This is an important aspect in any project as there will always be some give and take that will be required (Norman, 2016). Project management information systems (PMIS) PMIS stands for project management information system and is how information from a project is organized. Utilizing one or more software applications the systems will collect and store information from a project. These program systems assist a project manager to plan, execute and close projects. There are different types of PMIS software some of the major players are Microsoft, Oracle, Meridian, Autodesk, Aconex, RIB Software, Huddle and others (Blackburn, 2019). There are companies that offer single applications to manage aspects of a project and others offer a suite of specialized applications. Each application offers applicable features for certain industries. The chart below breaks down different applications that can be used for different types of industries. The chart was retrieved from the PMI website (IIyas, et al, 2013). (IIyas, et al, 2013) Project manager is one company that offers an online system for companies. It offers an all-encompassing system that is cloud-based, keeps all the project management tools under one roof and allows for communication between teams on a project in one area. it also archives all documents and images. Displays everything in a real-time dashboard. References Alby. T., (2019). Expert judgment. Project Management Knowledge. Retrieved from Blackburn, M. (2019). A complete guide to PMIS.
