Project Management E-Mail

 

Dear Project Manager:

 

We have three project proposals to consider in next week’s Project Management Office’s (PMO) Review. Piper Industries Corp. needs the projects to be complete and to be generating review within 12 months of next week’s PMO Review. Wendell Deirelein, our vice-president, has assigned your team to analyze the three projects below and make a recommendation on which project the company should invest in. The recommendation must include your team description of the five phases of the project and the key deliverables (project completion date and cost) for each project.

•Product is forecasted to have a ROI of $250,000 for a period of 2 to 3 years.

•The third year is forecasted to be the end of life for this product line due to advances projected in technology.
