AMBA 640 WEEK 2 INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT 1 Individual Assignment #1 (W2IA) Instructions Basic Directions: After studying The Orion Shield Project (found as the next topic here), each student critically discusses the technical, ethical, legal, contractual, and other project management issues that faced program manager Gary Allison. He or she decides where Gary and others have done well and where not, in a succinct report that includes an executive summary. Additional Instructions: After you view the video, reading the transcripts as desired, you’ll likely agree that Gary Allison has not done well as Orion Shield R&D program manager. Your task is to identify and discuss the technical, ethical, legal, contractual, and other project management issues that he has faced. There are difficulties in each of these areas. Be sure to address the following questions: • For instance, perhaps the Orion Shield contract type is wrong. What would have been a better one? For whom – the customer, the company or both? What does the Federal Acquisition Regulation say about R&D contracts? • What project planning documents are mentioned, or not mentioned, in the case? • Does Henry Larsen “get away with” his bad behavior? If so, why? • There is no mention of project manager training in the case. Did Gary Allison need such training? Why or why not? • For Orion Shield, to whom does Gary report? This is no time to be reserved. Name names as you identify the culprits in this case. Required Format: As to overall plan format, use A Format for Your Text Assignments found in Content/General Information. Remember to include a results-filled executive summary at the beginning of your report. Your report should be about six (6) pages in length or less, preceded by an executive summary of about 0.5 page, all double-spaced. Required Readings: • Schwalbe, K. (2015).
