BUS353e Project ManagementSection ASection 1: Defining the ProjectSolution 1:a)After receiving the resume of the probable candidates, they are first of all screened on thebasis of technical qualifications. But after getting the candidates with adequatequalifications shall be called for the subsequent interview by developing a recruitmentplanning document. The HR plan developed should contain few questions to check thecandidate’s performance under various live conditions which may occur during executionand after the implementation phase. Then the candidate shall be assessed purely on thebasis of the personal attributes like:Confidence in the candidate in self-abilities[CITATION McQ17 \l 1033 ]: theconfidence is a tool, which is if available with the person, then he or she can achievewhatever he or she desires to. So irrespective of the quality or features of the job, aconfident person not only can deliver the duties but also capable of growing theorganization as well. Since the job at HPSS project is very specific in nature, so theselected candidate need to coordinate self with the vendors and other outside agenciesfor proper maintenances of the speaker system otherwise there could be heavy penaltyto NCP. So a confident person is very much required for the HPSS job to handle thepressure smartly.Positive attitude[ CITATION Uni171 \l 1033 ]: is the required characteristic of thecandidate to know their interest level in the organization and willingness to work inthe company. Because the conditions at HPSS project are very tough and sometimesspecially during the shows at NCP, tremendous pressure is required to be taken by thecandidate. So he or she needs to be very much interested and have positive attitudeabout the organization, so that the love for the company provide the will power tosustain the work pressure.Cooperative (Teamwork capability): while hiring any candidate, it is a highcategory weightage criterion which is required to be assessed before recruiting thecandidate. Any person cannot work individually, always the teamwork that wins.Moreover, in case of HPSS project where the team is so small consisted with four coremembers only (including the candidate), so a cohesive work culture is required to be3
BUS353e Project Managementmaintained for the success of the project, otherwise due to communication gap theresults of the project can be something else. So especially for such a small group likeHPSS, team worker candidate are required to be selected.b)Now the new candidate for the maintenance of the speaker system is recruited and theTLab has also sent their representative for the job and I along with Tan have alreadyformed a team. So for the proper functioning of this team all of us are required to sail acommon ship to reach the aim of the project, else all can work hard but still could notmeet the project targets. So for proper functioning below three common vehicles whichare required to be established to act as a strong team are:All have common goal and the project objectives are clear in every one’s mind[CITATION Dum17 \l 1033 ]: to obtain this culture all the team members are required to meetfrequently either formally or informally to share the personal goals and professional goals,so that the overall objective of the project can be aligned with the personal for mutualbenefits. In case of HPSS project, the success of making the event successful all teammembers need to align their aim to make the goal as common and make efforts toward thefunction only. In case it is not present, then the arguments takes place, it heats up theatmosphere and none of them work as team. So all members in HPSS are required to bealigned toward achieving the common goal.One focal person (Project Manager) to coordinate among all team members:there has to be one person who coordinates among the team, so that everyone knows thatin case of any issue whom they can contact. This features smoothens the confusion and thepositive attitude spreads throughout the project team. In case of HPSS, it is alreadymaintained by making the communication manger as focal point of the project andpromoted to the project manager post. So a focal person is very much required for thesuccess of a project.All are aware of other team members’ strength and weaknesses[ CITATIONLlo12 \l 1033 ]: this is a tough work, because none will share their weaknesses, but duringthe course of interactions in formal or informal meetings all should get accounted witheach other’s nature. In HPSS project, it is even very easy sine the number of team4
