Leading and Managing the HR Project

Leading and Managing the HR Project

Continuing from the previous assignment, it is now important to consider your approach to leading and managing your HR project. Tightly structured projects tend to restrict cross-organizational communication. As such, objectives originate at the top of the project and are subdivided as they are passed down, resulting in little opportunity for creative contributions. Effective leadership and managing of the project can greatly improve communication and team contributions.


Write a 5–6 page paper in which you:

  1. Review and understand the types of project manager      power listed and defined in the textbook, select and define any two      you feel would be relevant to your current project, and explain why. Be      specific.
  2. Identify and briefly discuss a minimum of      four outcomes (possible issues) resulting from managing projects, and      address how you might resolve the issues. Be clear with your rationale.
  3. Discuss some increased challenges a project manager may      face when leading virtual or global project teams. Recommend a few      strategies to deal with the challenges.
  4. Identify and explain your overall plan for      communication management during the project. The plan must be      comprehensive and at a minimum address structure, purpose, method,      and timing.
  5. Go to Strayer University      Online Library to locate at least      three quality academic (peer-reviewed) resources for this assignment.
