Reflection and Discussion Forum Week 3

Reflection and Discussion Forum Week 3Reflect on the assigned readings for the week. Identify what you thought was the most important concept(s), method(s), term(s), and/or any other thing that you felt was worthy of your understanding. 
Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:

  1. The PMI “Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct” provides guidelines for ethical behavior by project management practitioners. It describes four main values that should guide a project manager’s actions. List these four values and give one example per value of why it should guide a project manager’s actions.
  2. Cultural patterns differ in various parts of the world, so project team members need to be more sensitive as to how their actions are interpreted. Project managers working with global and virtual project teams need to be especially mindful of the increased need for communications.  Discuss some of the extra communications challenges posed by virtual and global project teams, along with a few approaches to address these challenges.
  3. Imagine you are the project manager of a team tasked with building a new hotel.  When brainstorming project communication plan considerations, what would you list under “purposes”?

[Your initial post should be based upon the assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a source listed in your reference section and cited within the body of the text. Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid in your discussion]. [Your initial post should be at least 450+ words and in APA format (including Times New Roman with font size 12 and double spaced). Post the actual body of your paper in the discussion thread then attach a Word version of the paper for APA review]

Stakeholder Identification ExerciseInstructions: Using the Project you selected for the Week 2 Business Case/Elevator Pitch Exercise complete the the Stakeholder Identification Exercise in the attached document. Fill in each of the quadrants for internal and external stakeholders impacted by the project progress and the project results. List as many stakeholders as you can identify but no more than ten (10) per quadrant. Also, copy and paste the Business Case/Elevator Pitch from Week 2 on the second page of this document. Additional instructions are in the template.Be specific with your stakeholder identifications. For example, if the project were the repurposing of a fast food restaurant to operate under emergency circumstances (i.e. 2020 Coronavirus pandemic) then you should not just list “Customers” as stakeholders. You would need to identify these more specifically as “Dine-In Customers”, “Drive Through Customers”, Walk-In Customers” and “Delivery Customers”.
