There are many roles of a Christian worldview in It project management. One main role is to know your project team members. This does not only include defining roles and responsibilities within the project team but also build a foundation of trust. As 1 Thessalonians 5:11 states, “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing” (ESV). Keeping your project team motivated leads to increased productivity, collaboration, and an environment of great ideas. Another role of a Christian worldview in It project management is taking care of each other. Luke 15:4-6 states “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home” (NKJV). A project manager should demonstrate a servant attitude, this is focusing on the project team and what that project manager can do for the team and not what the team can do for project manager. In other words, providing the project team with the tools that are needed for them to achieve their full potential in order to deliver a successful project.

Hello Professor and class,

Since this is a project management class, I feel like its main focus is organization, coordination, communication, and overall leadership skills. There is much to be said regarding how a Christian ought to examine and display these skills and qualities – especially as we look at Jesus’s example. In this week’s first discussion question, I feel like that scenario was the outcome of poor leadership and responsibility. Both of which may happen but are not great demonstrations of the Christian worldview. It only serves the project manager, not the team who has been doing the labor for 9 months just to amount to nothing; not the management who entrusted this project to the PM; not the stakeholders who are expecting a completed deliverable. If we look at Jesus’s ministry we do not see this type of behavior. He is a serving leader. We see this in the scene where he is washing the feet of his disciples. So, in a Christian Worldview, a project manager can contribute to the success of a project by being the catalyst to serve others and ultimately do the job for sake and benefit of others instead of “looking good on paper”.

C Samita

Being an all-around nice with your team is what the Christian world view means. Give trust and earn trust. Allow the team to do their job and support them with kindness. Sometimes a Project Manager needs to be a bit hard on the team but when a firm hand needs to be taken to get the desired results, I follow the saying “Use an iron fist in a velvet glove.” This means that while you make everyone know that certain things must be done, you are not an ogre, use words do not anger, use rewards instead of threats, be a friend to earn a friend. This may sound crazy, but I feel that respect is earned, and the earning process is not an easy road. To have a project succeed, for example, provide as much support as you can for the process and allow the team to blossom and grow and listen to what they are saying, not just the words, what is between the lines and divulge how that can be used to bring about success to the project.

415 Topic 7 DQ 1 (NOT TO BE DONE)

Imagine the following scenario. You are the project manager for an IT project that had been underway for 9 months. You have discovered that the technology is obsolete and you are over budget, but other than that, the project looks “great on paper.” As the project manager, what is your recommendation for how to proceed on the project? In replies to peers, discuss whether you agree or disagree with the assessments and justify your position with specific reasons, facts, and examples.

Although I’m not sure if similar situations happen in real life, I would definitely say that the problems in this scenario are rooted in a poor or inadequate planning/initiating phase. Nine months is not a long enough time for technology to become obsolete and for a project to be “great” on paper” does not settle well with me, especially if the project is already over budget. The panic alarm would be going off and I would be hitting the ground running to find a solution. My first action would be to look at my contingency plans and investigate what can be done that I already thought of doing when these things fail. I would also schedule a meeting with my financial team/contact to see what can be done to give the project a little bit more room so it can be turned around. I think I would also ask, if possible, to reach out to other PMs or mentors for advice as to what alternatives have worked for them. If there is still plenty of time available in the project, I would see what can be done with leadership and asset management to obtain the technology fit for this project. Otherwise, there seem to be several holes in this project. It has bled out and now it’s all coming to light. It may be time to start considering what can be done to salvage anything and save the company money instead of burning it by trying to save my project.

The first step of dealing with the project is clearly identifying the significant issues that are wrong with the project’s current state. The primary issues are that it is obsolete and has gone beyond the schedule. The fact that it ‘looks good on paper’ should not be a factor in allowing it to go on, but a motivating factor in correcting it (Engelhardt, 2019). As a project manager, I would reorganize the project development process, rearrange it, and reschedule it for further development. I would identify the objectives of the project and reorganize the resources available and tea members to start developing the technology. I would then set new milestones with other tracking mechanisms alongside another schedule. This would then set the project on a new course.

Class,

If you are nine months into a project and are just now finding out that your tech is obsolete and that you are over budget I am sorry to say that there is much more going on than meets the eye. But if we were to take this example and look at it the first action item on my agenda as a PM is to look at the budget and review that in-depth with my finance team and see where we could trim the fat of the project without causing too many change requests for the client. If you have no budget then it might be time to scrap the project and take this one as a loss.

If the tech is obsolete that is a challenge that might take a while to figure out. I would need to meet with my leadership and plan out a strategy to update the tech as soon as possible and within the new budget that has been set forth by our finance team. I would rather be transparent with the client and see if we could gain their trust back. We also would need to offer a possible discount on the product which means that sales would need to get involved as well. All in all, this is not an ideal situation but not something that can’t be turned around.
