Individual Assignment (suggested level of effort: 3 hours)
Read the Suburban Homes Construction Project case study found at the end of chapters 1 through 4 (see attachments), CPM 4e and answer the following questions in a paper formatted using a question-response format:
Question 1 (from Unit 1) – What advice would you offer to Adam Smith on improving the performance of project management and increasing project success rate? Minimum 250 words.
Question 2 (from Unit 4) – Describe the organizational structure that might best suit Suburban Homes. Ensure that your discussion includes all possible structures and why each is ruled out. Minimum 250 words.
Question 3 (from Unit 4) – Describe the type of lifecycle best suited for their emphasis on high-quality construction. Ensure that your discussion includes at least 3 possible lifecycles and why two of them are ruled out. Minimum 250 words.
You will be assessed on content and mechanics.
Content (30 points/question): The content must be based on the case study materials and reading assignments. The PMBOK 6e and CPM 4e, along with other reputable resources can be used to supplement the responses through summarizing, paraphrasing and quoting those sources.
Mechanics (10 points): Each question response must be at at minimum 250 words. “Minimum” is that amount typically needed to meet expectations (to earn a “B”). To exceed expectations (to earn an “A”), a deeper discussion is needed. Each reference should be listed at the end of the paper following APA guidelines. Online blogs are not acceptable references. See Purdue OWL website for guidance on in-text citations.
Your Instructor will use Turn-it-in to ensure your paper is authentic work. To avoid plagiarism, see the course home page for more information and use the Purdue Online Writing Lab to learn how to paraphrase, summarize and cite the references you use in all academic writing assignments.
