...to establish a meritorious hiring practice that is age, race, gender and minority neutral. Create a committee to help implement the policy and come up with new ideas on how to attract more diversity to the company. Amend the company mission statement to reflect this change. Make the job more compelling to job hunters by emphasizing details that will attract a more diverse candidate pool. Be culturally sensitive when describing what makes your company a good place to work. Provide diversity training in your workplace. All employees should understand that hiring decisions are based on finding the best candidate and not by quotas. Making the recruiting process more transparent can help ease the minds of skeptical employees. Also be sure managers fully understand the benefits of a diverse workplace. They will be implementing personnel policies so should be fully committed to supporting the practice. Offer benefits such as onsite daycare, childcare subsidies and flexible schedules, and let new hires know that you are willing to accommodate cultural and religious holidays and diversity-friendly (but office appropriate) apparel choices. If your community doesn’t have familiar cultural offerings like ethnic restaurants, specialty markets or international movies, you can work with the local chamber of commerce to campaign for more diversity and fill those needs.

...1/32 From Nobel Prize to Project Management: Getting Risks Right by Bent Flyvbjerg, Ph.D. & Dr. Techn. Aalborg University, Denmark Printed in Project Management Journal, vol. 37, no. 3, August 2006, pp. 5-15 See in-print version here: http://flyvbjerg.plan.aau.dk/Publications2006/Nobel-PMJ2006.pdf 2/32 Abstract A major source of risk in project management is inaccurate forecasts of project costs, demand, and other impacts. The paper presents a promising new approach to mitigating such risk, based on theories of decision making under uncertainty which won the 2002 Nobel prize in economics. First, the paper documents inaccuracy and risk in project management. Second, it explains inaccuracy in terms of optimism bias and strategic misrepresentation. Third, the theoretical basis is presented for a promising new method called "reference class forecasting," which achieves accuracy by basing forecasts on actual performance in a reference class of comparable projects and thereby bypassing both optimism bias and strategic misrepresentation. Fourth, the paper presents the first instance of practical reference class forecasting, which concerns cost forecasts for large transportation infrastructure projects. Finally, potentials for and barriers to reference class forecasting are assessed. The American Planning Association Endorses Reference Class Forecasting In April 2005, based on a study of inaccuracy in demand forecasts for public works projects by Flyvbjerg, Holm,......

...has to overcome the above concerns to determine whether or not the organization has identified the right people, right jobs, the right supervisors, and the right organizational settings. The people who are successful telecommuters have the ability to set and meet work goals and are comfortable working by themselves. The necessary skill for a home worker is learning how to work without supervision, to manage time, and to plan out a work day. Telecommuters require supervisors who believe that they are committed to both task and organization. Since a key element in a telecommuting program's success is supervision, managers must be trained to deal with the problems created by telecommuters. Beside the learning new computer-related skills, supervisors must learn to clearly define job expectations, specific task goals, and acceptable quality standards. Since managers of telecommuters cannot observe their employees at work, they must learn human relations skills that will allow them to effectively adapt their leadership style and interpersonal communications to a separated workforce. The HR department must develop and enforce corporate policy regarding the protection of confidential customer and company information kept on remote location computers. Policy must provide login and password requests, data backup, anti-virus updating and disciplinary action for violations. It should be including specific rules that limit or prohibit personal use of company property to......

... 7(b) The Payback Method 7(c) The constrains using Payback Method The payback period is commonly used as an investment appraisal technique and measures the length of time that it takes to recover the initial investment. However this method presents obvious constraints which prevent the ranking of projects. The payback period does not account for the time value of money, risk, financing, or other important considerations, such as the opportunity cost. Payback period does not specify any required comparison to other investments or even to not making an investment. Thus, one project may be more valuable than another based on future cash flows, but the payback method does not capture this. CHAPTER 5 : FORECASTING 8.

...Part 1: The Role of the IT Manager in Organizations As the Information Technology (IT) manager for Magnum Enterprises, I know that my role is to integrate software, hardware, and my business management capabilities into a fully functional IT operating business. I am aware that there will be challenges as I assume the position as head of the IT management effort at Magnum. In serving this position, my team and I will make Magnum a better organization. I will take this opportunity to explain how I interpret the role of the IT Manager. IT entails anything related to computer technology. Some of these things include software, hardware, networks, the internet, and everyone that works with any of these systems. Working with these systems includes occupations such as computer programming, computer engineering, technical support, Web development, network administration, and various other related jobs. IT departments are widespread among many organizations for management of the computers, networks, and computer technical areas of their business. Responsibilities of managers can range from overseeing several different areas to focusing only on one particular aspect. These areas often include IT Compliance, Application Development, Project Management, Server Administration, as well as several other areas. The role of IT managers is generally being responsible for engaging many areas of the organization, including distribution, finance, manufacturing, operations, and......

...PROJ420 – Project Risk Management JC Gear Case Study Risk: A Case Study: "Risk Options: The Automated Production Control System Case" The following short case will give you a good idea of how risks surface in business and project planning and what companies do about it. Consider that you are the Risk Manager as you look at this case, as it will be a good exercise for the time when you will be that Risk Manager! The JC Gear Company has decided to initiate a project aimed at automating its production planning and control system. Among the options, the company focuses on two alternatives: (1) purchasing the most suitable system off of the shelf and modifying it according to its individual production needs; or (2) developing a system that will support all of the specific production-planning policies and procedures currently in use. The first alternative represents a project of relatively low development risk; however, the benefits may be minimal. This is because most off-the-shelf software packages have limited flexibility and can only rarely be made 100% compatible with the existing work environment. The second alternative offers a higher chance of achieving the technological and functional goals, but involves a significant software development risk. The development and integration risks are higher with the second alternative, and consequently, the risk of schedule delays and budget overruns is also higher. Yet the opportunity in the second risk area is greater because of......

...A project manager is responsible for planning and coordinating a project from beginning to end. They should know how to delegate effectively to their employees duties, responsibilities and activities. They must deliver results on time and stay on track according to the budget. In order for a project to be completed successfully, the use of time, money, and materials is critical. Project management consists of a lot of attributes. They are well organized, communicate effectively, build and lead teams, flexible, and are great decision makers but being a project manager does take time. Every day is not the same. The project manager must be able to embrace change. Project management is a straight forward job. Even though you will go through obstacles, a manager must be able to fix whatever problem comes their way. In the Orion Shield Project, we see how Gary was faced with a lot of obstacles that resulted in ethical, legal and contractual issues. Technical Managers are always pulled in different directions but time management skills are essential in order for a manager to succeed. Gary did a wonderful job presenting the technical data but was unavailable when his team presented the administrative data. Sarah Wilson felt like Gary couldn’t maintain a balance between his technical and administrative roles so she thought that Gary should step down and only present the administrative data. Another technical issue was that Gary didn’t present enough experimental data.......

...business. One dimension was its tradition of generous donations of its corporate resources. Since 1985, Ben & Jerry’s donated 7.5% of its pretax earnings to various social foundations and community-action groups. The company supported causes such as Greenpeace International and the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation by signing petitions and recruiting volunteers from its staff and the public. The company expressed customer appreciation with an annual free cone day at all of its scoop shops. During the event, customers were welcome to enjoy free cones all day. Although the level of community giving was truly exceptional, what really made Ben & Jerry’s unique was its commitment to social objectives in its marketing, operations, and finance policies. Cohen and Greenfield emphasized that their approach was fundamentally different from the self-promotion-based motivation of social causes supported by most corporations. At its best, cause-related marketing is helpful in that it uses marketing dollars to help fund social programs and raise awareness of social ills. At its worst, it’s “greenwashing”—using philanthropy to convince customers the company is aligned with good causes, so the company will be seen as good, too, whether it is or not.… They understand that if they dress themselves in that clothing, slap that image on, that’s going to move product. But instead of just slapping the image on, wouldn’t it be better if the company actually did care about its......
