    • Organizational Planning Process Inputs• Project Interfaces – Organizational interfaces - formal and informal reporting relationships – Technical interfaces - relationships among different technical disciplines – Interpersonal interfaces - relationships among individuals on the project• Staffing Requirements - kinds of competencies and individuals needed and in what time frame 4
    • Organizational Planning Process Inputs Cont.• Constraints - factors that limit a project team’s options such as: – Organizational structure – Collective bargaining agreements – Preferences of the project management team – Expected staff assignments 5
    • Organizational Planning Types of Organizations• Functional - stove pipe/ managers and territories and no crossovers (do have a clear chain of command)• Project Expeditor - functional organization with recognition of project activities, PM reports to functional management• Project coordinator - PM reports to higher management 6
    • Organizational Planning Types of Organizations Cont.• Weak Matrix - Functional managers and project managers in a matrix organization with all money done within the functions of the organizations• Strong Matrix - PMs have budget authority with firing/hiring/rewards decisions• Projectized - PM is a supervisor in control of all activities 7
    • Organizational Planning Process Tools and Techniques• Templates - Often prior projects role and responsibilitydefinitions or reporting relationships can help expedite the process•Human Resource Practices - Knowledge of HR policies,guidelines, and procedures can help with organizational planning•Organizational Theory - Understanding organizational theory willbetter enable the PM to respond to project requirements•Stakeholder Analysis - Identification and analysis of needs ofstakeholders will ensure that their needs will be met 8
    • Organizational Planning Outputs• Role and responsibility assignments – A responsibility Assignment Matrix is often used to closely link assignments to the project scope definition• Staffing management Plan – describes when and how human resources will be brought onto and taken off of the project team 9
    • Organizational Planning Outputs Cont.• Organization chart – Any graphic display of project reporting relationships• Supporting detail - includes such detail as: – Organizational impact – Job descriptions – Training needs 10
    • Human Resource Management Roles and Responsibilities• Roles and responsibilities – PMI states that it is the project manager’s responsibility to plan, estimate, and schedule a project, interface management and integration of our project’s subsystems. – The team’s role is to help plan what needs to be done (WBS), the project flow (Network Diagram), as well as to estimate times for their tasks. – Senior management’s role is to approve the overall project plan, budget, and schedule and to approve any changes to these. 11

    • Human Resource Management Powers• Powers of the project manager cont. – Purse string - whoever has the money has the power – Bureaucratic - Because you know the system and how to work it you have the power – Charismatic - your power derives from your charm• PMI says the best forms of power are EXPERT and REWARD. PENALTY is the worst. FORMAL, REWARD, and PENALTY are powers derived from the PM’s position in the company. EXPERT power is earned on your own 15
