Projects can be implemented in many environments for many reasons. For example, International Paper transfers people from U.S. based leadership positions to international leadership positions for cross-training and business-related needs.
Complete the exercise below with the Critical Thinking rubric in mind.
Assume that you are a project manager in human resources whose project is to facilitate the move of a leader in a U.S. International Paper location to India, and to facilitate the move of a leader in an India International Paper location to the same position in the United States. These leaders are changing locations for the purpose of cross-training. Both moves should be completed within three months from today. Develop a WBS that identifies the activities at the work package level. Consider Exhibit 4.3 and the tasks that might be input to a project management software tool.
While you will not use a project management software tool, you are asked to use a similar outline format in MS Word to detail your WBS. You should include at least four levels of indent at a minimum, to reach the work package level. If you need more, then you may use more. Your WBS should be included as an appendix to a 2-4 page paper describing how, in theory, a WBS should be developed, and then how your WBS was developed. Indicate what you learned about this process of delivering a WBS.
Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:
2 pages in length, not including the cover, references page, and appendix.
Formatted according to APA.
Cite a minimum of three sources, two of which should be current academic peer-reviewed, scholarly sources to support your responses. Demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and the current APA and writing standards. Note: Current research in this class means the most recent five-year period. Although research older than five years may be used, it will not count toward the assignment requirement. Additionally, in lecture material for Module 1, you were reminded of what constitutes academic peer-reviewed, scholarly sources.
Appendix—remember that appendices follow the references page.
