PRM301 Introduction to Project Management Case 2 Project Planning

We continue our examination of the Apollo Project by considering some planning and project initiation issues.Every project has stakeholders; people and organizations that will benefit, in some way, from the project. For a project the size of Apollo, the list was extensive, as were the types of benefits. But there were also non-stakeholders; those who opposed the project for various reasons, the most common being that the project would absorb resources that could be put to better use elsewhere. For the first part of this Case,do the following:•List the most important stakeholders, and what they expected to gain.•List the non-stakeholders – the project opponents – and give some reasons for their opposition.The Apollo Project was ambitious to the point of madness in one respect; both the preferred solution and implementation plan were unknown at the outset. Achieving the goal would require inventing the required technology as the project went along. Accordingly, a series of increasingly more powerful rocket engines and larger, more capable spacecraft were developed and tested in the run-up to the Apollo 11 launch. For the second part of this Case,•Summarize the sequential technological advances that took place between Kennedy’s announcement of the project, and the Apollo 11 launch in 1968.•Comment on the “build the bridge as you go” approach. For what sort of project would that be appropriate? What sort of organization should attempt it?Resources for this Case are listed on the Background Information page.
