Alternately, a project manager wears many hats. Every one of these roles involves dealing with people. If a project manager has these roles (leader, communicator, negotiator, problem solver, influencer, integrator), it obviously means they must develop the skills in these areas. That is why soft skills for project managers are absolutely critical. A project manager spends 90% or more of his or her time communicating.
Why is quality important in a project? Who should be in charge of quality on any given project?
Discuss how you would go about developing a quality management plan for the course project you have been working on. What quality assurance tools would you use? Why? How would you measure and monitor quality control?
For your given course project, discuss how you would go about obtaining the human resources needed to complete the project (both material and people)?
Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:
Will your sponsor or stakeholders accept your project, if it does not meet their quality expectations?
If you do not specify the quality standards for a work package or single activity, how would know if it met your expectations? You have to have a quality baseline established.
To staff your project with people, would you acquire those employees from within or outside the organization? Why?
How would you determine whether to buy or make the material or service you need on a project?
