Project Snapshot
Concerns
 Revenue growth began to
slow
 Expansion has doubled the
balance sheet debt
 Strong competitors enhanced
their product lines
 Store managers spent a
majority of the day in the
store office due to the oldfashioned POS systems
Tasks
Phase 1 – Planning
 Lay out an elaborate process
for monitoring and reporting
the progress of all projects
Phase 2 – Development
 Define the details of the
overall system objectives
 Develop architecture
designs for data and
software
Phase 3 – Implementation
 Prepare software
requirements, functional and
conceptual designs, user
interface designs, and
system interface
requirements
 Design interfaces
 Code
 Perform testing to
demonstrate system
readiness
Phase 4 – Pilot
 Open of a few pilot stores as
part of the initial
deployment process to build
positive momentum
Performance Goals
 Free up the store manager to
work the store instead of the
office
 Automate cash management
processes to include
debit/credit at store level
 Provide on-network
connectivity, allowing realtime access to a wide range
of information
 Significantly reduce credit
authorization processing
times
Deliverables
 POS and credit systems
 Store management suite
(including sales, cash, credit
rollups to corporate legacy
systems)
 CRM data interfaces to new
corporate CRM application
 Inventory data interfaces to
corporate inventory legacy
systems
 Extension of corporate
email to the stores
 Implementation of VoIP at
stores and headquarters
Benefits
 Store managers would
reduce time spent on backstore management from 6 to
1.5/2 hours per day
 ROI analysis determined
this project would return
$15 million per year to more
than 400 stores
 $20,000 per year per
resource in salary and
benefits due to reduction on
one sales associate
 $11,000 per year in cost
efficiencies due to new
back-store management
application
QSO 340 Module Two Short Paper Rubric
Overview: In this short paper, you will create a general overview of the five PMBOK® Process Groups and an analysis of how two of those process groups apply
to the management of the case study for the final project. Additionally, you will identify shortcomings in the project management of the case and make
recommendations for improvement.
Prompt: Write a short paper based on the five PMBOK® Process Groups and the case study you selected for the final project. Specifically, the following critical
elements must be addressed:



Provide a concise overview of each of the five PMBOK® Process Groups.
Select two process groups and apply them to the case study you selected for your final project. To accomplish this, conduct an analysis of the case study
and describe occurrences that are consistent with the components of the two process groups. For instance, the Planning process group includes creating
a project scope and schedule: Once you connected those aspects of the case study to the Planning process group, you could briefly discuss how the
scope and schedule were created and their main highlights.
Identify areas of weakness and make recommendations for potential improvements. To accomplish this, point out aspects of the two process groups
that were not implemented effectively or at all, and propose ways the project manager could address those elements.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as a 1- to 2-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font,
one-inch margins, and sources cited in APA format.
