Why was it so difficult to develop a singular methodology from the start?

Ferris HealthCare, Inc.

In July of 1999, senior management at Ferris recognized that its future growth could very well be determined by how quickly and how well it implemented project management. For the past several years, line managers had been functioning as project managers while still managing their line groups. The projects came out with the short end of the stick, most often late and over budget, because managers focused on line activities rather than project work. Everyone recognized that project management needed to be an established career path position and that some structured process had to be implemented for project management.

 

A consultant was brought into Ferris to provide initial project management training for 50 out of the 300 employees targeted for eventual project management training…..

what can you conclude about the characteristics of effective feedback?

As noted in this week’s textbook chapter, employees are happier when they received regular feedback (Carpenter, Bauer, & Erdogan, 2010, p.97). Feedback takes many forms, but one of the most obvious types is feedback on performance. Managers must be able to give employees feedback on what they are doing well, and areas where an employee needs to improve. Think about times in your career when you have received feedback, and write a response that includes the following:

 

Share an example of a time when you received effective feedback that helped you improve your performance. What made that feedback helpful?

answer all questions using your own words.

The questions in this workbook are divided into two categories: Knowledge Assessment and Case Studies. The questions under Knowledge Assessments are all in a short answer format. The longer questions requiring creative and analytical thought processes are covered in the Project assessment. You must answer all questions using your own words. However, you may reference your learner guide and other relevant resources and learning materials to complete this assessment. Some questions cover processes you would likely encounter in a workplace. Ideally, you should be able to answer these questions based on the processes that are currently in place in your workplace.

Formulate a goal programming model to determine the amount of shag and sculptured carpet to produce to best meet the company’s goals.

1. The Wear-ever Carpet Company manufactures two brands of carpet—shag and sculptured— in 100-yard lots. It requires 8 hours to produce one lot of shag carpet and 6 hours to produce one lot of sculptured carpet. The company has the following production goals, in prioritized order:

 

(1) Do not underutilize production capacity, which is 480 hours.

(2) Achieve product demand of 40 (100-yard) lots for shag and 50 (100-yard) lots for sculptured carpet. Meeting demand for shag is more important than meeting demand for sculptured, by a ratio of 5 to 2.

(3) Limit production overtime to 20 hours.
