Project Management and Quality Systems

This course is designed to introduce and explore the basic concepts and practices of project management and help students understand how to plan and manage IS projects successfully. Throughout the course, students will be asked to utilize course concepts, methodologies, and tools while utilizing technology applications and addressing real-world problems. Students will learn the skills necessary to define project scope, create workable project plans, and manage projects with quality, budget, and schedule in mind. The course is structured around the key phases of project lifecycle, including initiating a project, developing project plans, executing and managing a project, and closing out a project. In addition, students will be taught how to identify and address the change management and political issues associated with project management.


Project Manager He is accountable for guaranteeing that all the processes of project management and technological development are in place and conducted within a set of basic criteria, specified procedures, and quality standards.
Reduce the amount of resources so that they can be shared with on other endeavors. The following are the responsibilities of agile project manager except:
TRUE Reduced development time is a benefit of RAD
TRUE Scope management ensures that the design of the project is correctly and thoroughly defined and done as expected. Additionally, scope control requires ways to ensure appropriate protocols are in place to adjust scope.
Assumptions
A kind of danger that we bring into the project in terms of projections or forecasts. They are what we use to estimate scale, schedule and budget and determine project risks.
Heavily reliant on lead developers or programmers The following are the Feature Driven Development (FDD) strengths except:
Project manager The decision to apply for an improvement in project funding is the accountability of the __________________.
Life cycle The time required to complete a project is defined as:
Balance of resources If several projects are going at the same time, what does matrix organization makes for a stronger company
Withdrawal What sort of dispute resolution strategy a project manager uses when he says, "I can't handle this problem now!"
Time Frame
When a project is a temporary undertaking it needs to have a definite start and end. Many projects start on a specific date, and the completion date is estimated. What is this?
Arrange for the team member to get training A team member on the project is not performing well as she is inexperienced in the work of system development. There is no other who is better suited to do the job. What is the best Project Manager solution?
Collecting Documents "My task is to go through the company's books that I'm working on to determine what data is being entered into the system." What analysis method is mentioned above?
TRUE
Time management is essential to create, track and manage the timetable for the project. This involves determining the stages and tasks of the project, and then calculating, scheduling, and allocating resources for each process to ensure the objectives and aims of the project are achieved.
Rewards and recognition Which of the following is not a Human Resource Plan method and technique?
Expert You are a project manager in a weak matrix environment, leading a cross-functional project team. None of the members of your project team report technically to you and you don't have the ability to explicitly reward their results. The project is difficult, with tight schedule constraints and high-quality requirements. In this situation, which of the following types of project management power will likely be the most effective?
Development and Testing In the SDLC model, which stage comes after Design?
Project Manager
He is accountable for guaranteeing that all the processes of project management and technological development are in place and conducted within a set of basic criteria, specified procedures, and quality standards.
External environment An organization that does not find risks associated with the project at any semi-formal risk management?
Responsibility assignment matrix You have just been appointed to a massive telecommunications project as the project manager. This one-year project is around halfway into completion. The project team is made up of 5 sellers, and 20 employees of your company. You want to understand who's in charge of doing what on the project. Where are you going to find that information?
Define Objectives, Session Preparation, Session Conduct, Documentation What is the correct order of process phases of the JAD model?
Project Organization This organizational structure offers funding for ventures as the dominant business type. A project organization can usually support several projects at once and can incorporate project management methods and strategies around the enterprise. Each project is viewed within the organization as a separate and fairly autonomous entity.
FALSE Quality management requires the prompt and reliable delivery of project knowledge to stakeholders within the project.
Project manager
The decision to apply for an improvement in project funding is the accountability of the __________________.
Project Closure It reflects to the formal completion of the deliverable of the project and their delivery to the end users-usually internal or external clients. The process also involves 'administrative termination,' which is ending the project team 's operations, completing all project paperwork and officially signing any contracts.
Time Frame When a project is a temporary undertaking it needs to have a definite start and end. Many projects start on a specific date, and the completion date is estimated. What is this?
Project A ______________________ is a series of tasks networked in an order and aimed at achieving the project's objectives.
Look at the existing structure, and consider areas for change What happens in the Analysis stage in the SDLC model?
FALSE A downside of the waterfall process is that research is performed only at project end?
The project sponsor Which of the following is NOT managed by the project manager?
Crystal Methods Low priority is given to the Project processes. This method focuses more on team communication, team member skills, people and interaction, rather than the processes.
FALSE
The most valuable resource on a project is the project manager. Human resource management focuses on building and improving the project team, as well as recognizing the behavioral aspect of project management and reacting appropriately.
Rapid Application Development (RAD) This methodology focuses on quicker, higher quality product development. Uses the laboratory approach when it comes to gathering specifications. Prototyping is used to achieve specific specifications and to re-use the software components to speed up the timelines for development.
Functional Organization The specific structure is based on arranging resources to carry out complex tasks or activities to attain the organization's goals. Projects are usually organized and housed within a specific role across customary networks.
Technical expert These entities are responsible for the identification, development and implementation of the technological and organizational infrastructure to support the IT project.
Planning The project schedule is developed in which of the following phases of the project?
Functional manager The project manager decides that additional human resources are required during project preparation within a matrix organization. Whom should he ask for such services from?
FALSE The most valuable resource on a project is the project manager. Human resource management focuses on building and improving the project team, as well as recognizing the behavioral aspect of project management and reacting appropriately.
TRUE
Scope management ensures that the design of the project is correctly and thoroughly defined and done as expected. Additionally, scope control requires ways to ensure appropriate protocols are in place to adjust scope.
TRUE RAD will be used when a program with a high budget for designers has to be produced within a limited time frame
Assumptions A kind of danger that we bring into the project in terms of projections or forecasts. They are what we use to estimate scale, schedule and budget and determine project risks.
FALSE Projects rarely require resources outside the organization (people, equipment, software, etc.). Procurement management ensures proper procurement of those capital.

Requirements, Design, Implementation, Testing, Maintenance What is the correct order of process phases of the waterfall model?
TRUE Time management is essential to create, track and manage the timetable for the project. This involves determining the stages and tasks of the project, and then calculating, scheduling, and allocating resources for each process to ensure the objectives and aims of the project are achieved.
Planning
The project schedule is developed in which of the following phases of the project?
Lack of resource leveling The project manager asks each team member to explain the work he or she does during each project team meeting, and the project manager assigns new tasks to the team members. Such meetings have grown in duration as there are several different tasks to be performed. This could be happening for all the following reasons except:
Subject matter expert If the company wants to build a tax decision-making method, having a project team tax specialist who can share his / her expertise would be more effective than having the technical people seek to learn more about tax accounting when designing the program.
Matrix Organization This is a combination of functional vertical structure and horizontal structure of a project. As a result, this company provides many of the opportunities and problems associated with the successful organizations and programs.
FALSE
Quality management requires the prompt and reliable delivery of project knowledge to stakeholders within the project.
