Information Technology Project/Team Management

 

Note: In order to successfully complete this project, you will need to carefully review the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document and the Medical
Informatics case study documents, located in the Assignments section of the course.
Overview: In this milestone, you will analyze the Medical Informatics case study in order to complete a draft of the project evaluation. The detailed guidelines for
what should be included in your project evaluation draft are outlined below. You should use the headings provided in the outline as headings in your draft to
ensure that you have considered all of the required elements. The purpose of these milestones is to provide the opportunity to complete pieces of your final
project through the course of the term, and obtain instructor feedback as part of grading that you can then apply to your final submission. Keep in mind that your
final project, submitted in Module Nine, will be composed of the information you have gathered in each of the five milestones, crafted into a comprehensive,
cohesive, well-written, and professional project proposal.
In the project evaluation, you should address the following:
A. Status Evaluation: Evaluate the project status to determine the current state of and issues with the project. You may need to evaluate the existing
deliverable and tracking for the project, such as Gantt charts, to provide an accurate representation of the project’s state.
B. Project Analysis: Examine the supporting documents and determine current and potential problems that need to be addressed with them immediately.
What information should be gathered to determine current variance and maintain control of project? You might consider these ideas in your analysis:
1. The impact of scope creep
2. The significance of the baseline
3. The impacts of baseline change
4. The estimated vs. actual costs
C. Forecasting: Assuming the project issues persist, provide a detailed prediction of future performance in terms of timeliness and costs. The following
ideas could be considered:
1. Assumptions that guide the forecasting
2. Projected end date of the project (schedule variance)
3. Cost to complete the project (cost variance)
4. Forecasted overrun at completion (estimates at completion)
D. Impact of the Past: To what extent, based on your project evaluation and analyses, did the past deliverables, strategies, and lack of effective project
management influence the failure of the project?
E. Corrective Actions: To what extent will corrective actions be required to avoid project failure? Include supportive detail from your project evaluation
and relevant resources. Things to consider include:
1. Immediate actions necessary to rescue the project
2. Target dates to rescue the project
3. Necessary steps to ensure the long-term success of the project
Guidelines for Submission: This draft must follow these formatting guidelines: double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, with APA
citations only if outside sources are cited. There is no minimum length for this draft; however, it should address all of the critical elements listed above.

Status Evaluation Accurately evaluates the project
status to determine the current
state of and issues with the
project
Evaluates the project status to determine the current state of and issues with the project, but
with gaps in accuracy or detail Does not evaluate the project
status to determine the current state of and issues with the
project

Project Analysis Comprehensively analyzes existing artifacts to determine
current and potential problems that need to be addressed
Analyzes the existing artifacts to determine current and potential
problems that need to be addressed, but with gaps in detail
Does not analyze existing artifacts to determine current and potential problems that need to be addressed
20
Forecasting Logically predicts the future performance of the project based on a set of assumptions
to reveal project costs and timeline issues
Predicts the future performance of the project based on a set of assumptions to reveal project
costs and timeline issues, but with gaps in logic or detail
Does not predict the future performance of the project based on a set of assumptions to reveal project costs and timeline issues
20
Impact of the Past Logically assesses the extent to which past deliverables, strategies, and lack of
management influenced the failure of the project
Assesses the extent to which past deliverables, strategies, and lack of management
influenced the failure of the project, but with gaps in logic
Does not assess the extent to which past deliverables,
strategies, and lack of management influenced the failure of the project
20
Corrective Actions Accurately determines the extent to which corrective
action will be required to avoid project failure, including support from project evaluation
and relevant resources
Determines the extent to which corrective action will be required to avoid project
failure, but with gaps in accuracy, detail, or support
Does not determine new project objectives
