Project management is the process of planning, scheduling, monitoring, and reporting on the development of an information system. Planning includes identifying all project tasks and estimating the completion time and cost of each. Project scheduling involves the creation of a specific timetable, usually in the form of charts that show tasks, task dependencies, and critical tasks that might delay the project. Project monitoring requires guiding, supervising, and coordinating the project team’s workload. The project manager must monitor the progress, evaluate the results, and take corrective action when necessary to control the project and stay on target. Project reporting includes regular progress reports to management, users, and the project team itself. Effective reporting requires strong communication skills and a sense of what others want and need to know about the project. A successful project must be completed on time, be within budget, and deliver a quality product that satisfies users and meets requirements.
After reading the overall objectives of a project managers role, the project manager from time to time needs to provide the status of the project to key stakeholders but specially the project sponsor.
Using the Template attached and your current semester schedule, provide a report on your progress so far in the semester. Be as detailed as possible using the template to complete your report. Explain how you will monitor the progress and evaluate the results of the project to guarantee it success.

The status meeting with the client (or internal stakeholders) is intended to provide them with project updates (scope and progress). It gives the opportunity for the teams and stakeholders to make sure that the project is proceeding as expected. If there are any issues, risks, or concerns that arise, now is the time to address them. Moreover, this can establish greater trust and confidence that the project team is performing as expected. Be prepared and professional in all aspects of conducting this meeting.

Descriiption Review Case 2.2 (p. 62-65) from the Project Management: The Manager

Descriiption
Review Case 2.2 (p. 62-65) from the Project Management: The Managerial Process textbook to complete this assignment (ATTACHED).
The purpose of this case is to give you experience in using a project priority system that ranks proposed projects by their contribution to the organization’s objectives and strategic plan.
The company is a part of the film division for a large entertainment conglomerate. The main office is located in Anaheim, California. In addition to the feature film division, the conglomerate includes theme parks, home videos, a television channel, interactive games, and theatrical productions. The company has been enjoying steady growth over the past 10 years.
Last year, the total revenues increased by 12% to $21.2 billion.
The film division generated $274 million in revenues, which was an increase of 7% over the past year. However, the profit margin was down 3% to 16% because of the poor response to three of the five major film releases for the year.
For this assignment, you will assume the role of a member of the priority team. This team is in charge of evaluating and selecting film proposals.
Use the provided evaluation form to formally evaluate and rank each proposal. Report your rankings, and justify your decisions.
Assume that all of the projects have passed the estimated hurdle rate of 14% return on investment (ROI).
In addition to the brief film synopsis, the proposals include the following financial projections of theater and video sales:
80% chance of ROI
50% chance of ROI
20% chance of ROI
For example, for Proposal #1 (Dalai Lama), consider the following:
There is an 80% chance that it will earn at least 8% ROI.
There is a 50/50 chance that the ROI will be 18%.
There is a 20% chance that the ROI will be 24%.
Use the following documents to prepare your evaluation:
Film Proposal (ATTACHED)
Evaluation Form (ATTACHED)
Use the following to guide you as you write your paper:
Describe the purpose of the assignment.
Present the updated evaluation form and ranking of each proposal.
Discuss the ranking, and justify your decisions.
Please use the PJM640_IP4_Template (ATTACHED) to complete this assignment.
