Project management and organizational behavior

The Board of Directors has reviewed the update on the progress of the project to plan, organize, and deliver the Annual Convention. They are very pleased with the progress made towards delivering this very important event. The Marketing Manager now believes there could be as many as 2,000 people attending the convention. They have asked you, as the Project Manager, to revise your Project Plan and update your data accordingly

For this assignment update the documents listed below to reflect having 2,000 people attend the convention rather than the first estimate of 1,000.

  • Cost Estimate Work Sheet
  • Failure Mode and Effect Analysis Worksheet
  • Contingency Report

Based on this updated data write a paper that is a minimum of 2 pages long summarizing how the increased number of attendees could threaten the probability of delivering a successful convention. If there are sections of the original project plan that can’t accommodate the increased number of attendees make sure to illustrate what needs to be updated in this version of the project plan to make up for the oversights in the original plan. This paper will be presented to the Board of Directors so make sure to use appropriate, audience-specific tone and vocabulary that is appropriate for addressing upper management.
