      • Scenario Review:
      • Website development project for a global, decentralized company.
      • Facts: good resources are staffing the project, project is proceeding according to plan until…
      • Halfway through the project you find out that another group is doing similar work at a regional level.
      • Additional Facts:
        • The other project is just beginning.
        • The other group is creating a reference website for several hundred employees that are impacted by a regional office relocation.
        • The relocation will cause many employees to start working from home instead of from an office.
      • What do you do?

      • Possible Answers:
      • Continue as you had planned and not worry about any duplication.
      • Contact the other project manager and inform him/her that your project will include everything they need so they can just include a link to your website instead of developing their own materials.
      • Contact the other project manager and see if the two of you can collaborate on this work, share relevant resources and cross-reference each other’s work.
      • Discontinue your project and give the materials your team has developed to the other project manager.
