Abstract

The effectiveness of a project manager can be seen in the way he manages key project variables like time, cost and quality. Caselet 1 discusses a typical project management problem which requires the manager to use various techniques to schedule activities so as to complete the project within the minimum possible time. Caselet 2 explains the process of identifying the project activities while preparing a project schedule. The case is structured to enable students to understand; (1) the process of scheduling project activities; (2) the relationship between project variables like time, cost and quality; and (3) the process of crashing a project schedule. The caselets are aimed at MBA/PGDBA students and are intended to be part of the project management or operations management curriculum.
