Activity 3
Case Study 5.2: California’s High-Speed Rail Project
A goal of the Obama administration has been to promote high-
speed rail across the most populous and geographically-
dispersed states in the United States. The idea is to adopt more
energy-saving initiatives while also helping to improve state’s
infrastructure. It is with this in mind that the Federal
Government made billions available to various states in the
2008–2010 budget cycles. After the Fall, 2010 elections,
several states that had elected Republican governors refused the
grants, suspicious that this seed money would not be sufficient
to pay for what they viewed as unnecessary construction based
on over-optimistic expectations of the need for and use of high-
speed rail. One of the states that accepted the money and has
moved forward strongly into high-speed rail has been
California, which has already begun work on a 65-mile section
in the middle of the state, earning the derisive nickname, the
“train to nowhere.” This case details the state’s projections
regarding the need for high-speed rail, against the views of
infrastructure experts and critics who charge that for a state that
is already in a severe budget crisis, this is just the sort of
project that makes no sense economically or demographically.
Questions
Assess the benefits and drawbacks of the high-speed rail
project. In your opinion, do benefits outweigh drawbacks, or
vice versa? Why? Justify your answer.
What are the implications of starting a project based on tenuous
projections that may or may not come true 10 years from now?
Could you justify the California high-speed rail project from the
perspective of a massive public works initiative? In other
words, what other factors enter into the decision of whether to
pursue a high-speed rail project? Why are they important?
Case Study 6.1: Columbus Instruments
This case is based on a true story of a once-successful
organization that had allowed its project management practices
to degenerate to the point where assignment to a project team
was often a mark of disfavor and a sign of pending termination.
The case involves issues of motivation, structural effects on
projects, and project team staffing. It offers students an
opportunity to see how, if left unchecked, certain behaviors by
department heads and others in the organization can work
counter to the desires to use project teams to improve
organizational profitability and instead make them a dumping
ground for malcontents and poor performers.
Questions
What are the implications of CIC’s approach to staffing project
teams? Is the company using project teams as training grounds
for talented fast-trackers, or as dumping grounds for poor
performers?
How would you advise the CEO to correct the problem? Where
would you start?
Discuss how issues of organizational structure and power played
a role in the manner in which project management declined in
effectiveness at CIC.

Reflection and Discussion Forum Week 31.What is the chief purpos.docx

  • 1. Reflection and Discussion Forum Week 3 1.What is the chief purpose of configuration management? In your opinion, why has it become increasingly popular in recent years as a part of the project management process? 2.Sustainable project development has many features and can mean many things when beginning a project. If you were to identify three critical messages that explain what sustainable project management really means, what would they be? 3.Identify the five major methods for resolving conflict. Give an example of how each might be applied in a hypothetical project team conflict episode. [Your initial post should be at least 450+ words and in APA format (including Times New Roman with font size 12 and double spaced). Post the actual body of your paper in the discussion thread then attach a Word version of the paper for APA review] Activity 3 Case Study 5.2: California’s High-Speed Rail Project A goal of the Obama administration has been to promote high- speed rail across the most populous and geographically- dispersed states in the United States. The idea is to adopt more energy-saving initiatives while also helping to improve state’s infrastructure. It is with this in mind that the Federal Government made billions available to various states in the 2008–2010 budget cycles. After the Fall, 2010 elections,
  • 2. several states that had elected Republican governors refused the grants, suspicious that this seed money would not be sufficient to pay for what they viewed as unnecessary construction based on over-optimistic expectations of the need for and use of high- speed rail. One of the states that accepted the money and has moved forward strongly into high-speed rail has been California, which has already begun work on a 65-mile section in the middle of the state, earning the derisive nickname, the “train to nowhere.” This case details the state’s projections regarding the need for high-speed rail, against the views of infrastructure experts and critics who charge that for a state that is already in a severe budget crisis, this is just the sort of project that makes no sense economically or demographically. Questions Assess the benefits and drawbacks of the high-speed rail project. In your opinion, do benefits outweigh drawbacks, or vice versa? Why? Justify your answer. What are the implications of starting a project based on tenuous projections that may or may not come true 10 years from now? Could you justify the California high-speed rail project from the perspective of a massive public works initiative? In other words, what other factors enter into the decision of whether to pursue a high-speed rail project? Why are they important? Case Study 6.1: Columbus Instruments This case is based on a true story of a once-successful organization that had allowed its project management practices to degenerate to the point where assignment to a project team was often a mark of disfavor and a sign of pending termination.
  • 3. The case involves issues of motivation, structural effects on projects, and project team staffing. It offers students an opportunity to see how, if left unchecked, certain behaviors by department heads and others in the organization can work counter to the desires to use project teams to improve organizational profitability and instead make them a dumping ground for malcontents and poor performers. Questions What are the implications of CIC’s approach to staffing project teams? Is the company using project teams as training grounds for talented fast-trackers, or as dumping grounds for poor performers? How would you advise the CEO to correct the problem? Where would you start? Discuss how issues of organizational structure and power played a role in the manner in which project management declined in effectiveness at CIC.
