The project manager for American Constructors Inc. (ACI) sat down with his team on 24 September 2009 to assess the progress of their building expansion project in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The team did on the World Outreach Church expansion project work for over a year already and it was nearing completion. Originally scheduled for completion by March 2010, the project deadline was ahead by 14 Moved in December 2009, requested the customer’s request, the use of the property for the Christmas season. In an effort to the reputation of ACI, the now middle Tennessee as prime contractor, the project manager and his team needed to determine whether the period 14 December had known was possible hold. This case was developed for use in an undergraduate or introductory MBA management or project management course. Designed to assist teachers in facilitating discussions of key project management concepts, it allows the case for a content analysis approach for the basic skills in the planning of a project, including precedence relationship, critical path, by data uncertainty (PERT tasks), crashing, etc. It can be used to teach students to use MS Project or other project management software. It can also be a less analytical, more discussion of project management leadership positions are used. While discussing the case, the teacher can bring points regarding what actually happened (note the teaching) that help round out the case discussion.
