PJM 6025 Team Assignment – Activities, Time Estimates, Sequencing, Critical Path, and Rough Cost Estimate

I. Overview and Rationale

Each team will need to insert the developed WBS into the MS Project. Next, you need to add activities and time estimates to the WBS in MS Project. You will find the MS Project course on LinkedIn Learning very helpful in completing this assignment. In addition, each team will be sequencing all the case project’s activities, identifying the critical path, and creating a summary of the estimated costs associated with the project’s major deliverables.

Fixing the payment system at Alvalade XXI:

a case on IT project risk management

This case describes the implementation and subsequent failure of an innovative system
installed in the bars of Alvalade XXI, the recently built football stadium in Lisbon, Portugal.
Casa XXI, the company running the bars, had entrusted the project to an IT supplier who
had limited experience with large systems. During the inauguration, the system failed
spectacularly creating a chaotic situation. The fiasco meant not only a financial loss, but
also a blow to the reputation of the company. The management blamed the supplier for
the failure. The supplier, however, claimed that the problem was not technical but
organizational, that is, poor planning of operations. Subsequent tests were inconclusive
and failed to restore trust. At the end of the case, the CEO is considering the possibility to
switch to an alternative supplier. He also wonders what they could have done to manage
the project and the associated risks more effectively. The case highlights risk and project
management issues in large systems implementations. The discussion can be structured
around cost/benefit analysis, risk assessment, and project management. Relevant
dimensions include: company operations, project scope, degree of innovation, technology
used, system architecture, supplier selection, and project organization. In addition, the
case raises governance questions: Who is responsible for the project? Even if the project
is outsourced, how should the roles and responsibilities be apportioned between the
company and the IT supplier(s)? What mechanisms should be used to plan and execute IT
projects, and control their risks?

n August 2003, while many Europeans were heading to
the beaches to mitigate the effects of the worst heat wave
on record, José Eduardo Sampaio, the CEO of Casa XXI,

was faced with another kind of heat.1 Cartão 21, the
innovative payment system of Casa XXI that he had
personally conceived and subcontracted, had dramatically
failed on 6 August during the high-visibility inauguration of
Alvalade XXI, the newly built football stadium of the
Sporting Club of Portugal.

Casa XXI had been granted the rights to exploit all the
