These questions are intended to provoke in-depth thinking about Project Management. As a candidate of project management, you should expand on the material that you researched through the course in addressing the discussions and assignments. Based on that knowledge, you should express your own perspective on the exam topics supported with examples, illustrations, commentaries, etc. – in other words, demonstrate integrative knowledge.

I expect to see, on average, at least 600-700 words for each answer (a minimum of about a page, single spaced or two pages, double spaced (not including references). In your responses use appropriate and properly cited references.

Respond to the following questions:

  1. As a project manager, choosing the appropriate project-oriented development process is an important decision. What criteria should you consider when making this decision – specifically when deciding between applying the waterfall and agile methodologies. This should include examples of products and/or case studies using material found in textbooks and/or other public sources. Be sure to cite all sources used and appropriately cite direct quotes.
  2. Social software are relatively new but widely known sources of information that can provide new opportunities for managing projects that may not be covered in published textbooks. What are some challenges or issues that should be considered before a project team implements a blog or a wiki? Research appropriate examples existing on the Web and refer to them to illustrate your analysis of the potential of these sources of Project Management knowledge.
  3. Offshoring continues to be a controversial business topic, especially with the economic downturns and local resistance to the globalization of business (e.g., protests against the World Trade Organization, union calls for protection of jobs, political positions, etc.). Using open sources of information, find and research three relevant issues and sources of information on offshoring. Cite your sources and articulate your interpretation of the issues identified as they impact Project Management practices.
  4. Describe an ethical dilemma that a project team member might face while being part of an IT project. Discuss how the project manager could aid in avoiding or resolving such a dilemma. Discuss where this dilemma falls within PMI codes. What are the potential effects on the project should the situation goes unresolved?
