Consider a course that you recently completed. Perform a review of the course (the
course represents a project and the course syllabus represents the project plan)
2. Imagine you are conducting a review of the International Space Station project.
Research press coverage and the Internet to collect information on the current status of
the project. What are the successes and failures to date?
What forecasts would you
make about the completion of the project and why?
What recommendations would you
make to top management of the program and why?
3. Interview a project manager who works for an organization that implements multiple
projects. Ask the manager what kind of closure procedures are used to complete a
project and whether lessons learned are used.
4. What are some of the lessons learned from a recent project in your organization? Was a
retrospective done? What action plans were generated to improve processes as a result
of the project?
