After studying The Orion Shield Project (found as the next topic here), each student critically discusses the technical, ethical, legal, contractual, and other project management issues that faced program manager Gary Allison. He or she decides where Gary has done well and where not, in a succinct report that includes an executive summary.
After you view the video, reading the transcripts as desired, you’ll likely agree that Gary Allison has not done well as Orion Shield R&D program manager.
Your task is to identify and discuss the technical, ethical, legal, contractual and other project management issues that he has faced. There are difficulties in each of these areas.
For instance, perhaps the Orion Shield contract type is wrong. What would have been a better one? For whom – the customer, the company or both?
This is no time to be “politically correct.” Name names as you identify the culprits in this case.
