CASE DESCRIPTION

The primary subject matter of this case is project management. Secondary issues examined include change management and operations management (specifically process management). The case has a difficulty level appropriate for junior level courses. The case is designed to be taught in one class session equivalent to one and a half hour (specifically if an assigned group of students do a 20 - 30 minute presentation of their analysis and recommendations and the rest of the period is spent for discussion (through question and answer)). It is expected to require between four to six hours of outside preparation by students.
