Unit ii assessment sad | Information Systems homework help

1.  Summarize strategic planning in your own words. Illustrate your summary by using real-world examples of tools you have seen used effectively in strategic planning.

2.  Imagine you are an information technology (IT) project manager in your city. Explain IT project management and how that information can aid you in your current or future career.

3.  Consider the scenario below.

A lively discussion is under way at Sunrise Software, where you are a project manager. The main question is whether the person-days concept has limitations. In other words, if a task will require 100 person-days, does it matter whether two people in 50 days, five people in 20 days, 10 people in 10 days, or some other combination that adds up to 100 performs the work?

Two programmers on the project seem to think it doesn’t matter. On the other hand, one of the project’s systems analysts says it is ridiculous to think that any combination would work. To support his point, this extreme example was offered: Could 100 people accomplish a task estimated at 100 person-days in one day? (Tilley, 2020, p. 80)
