  • Develop      a clear and concise synopsis of the case study. 
  • Explain      how the identified problem affects the project’s schedule, cost, and      scope.  
  • In      your own words, with cited support from scholarly resources, clearly and      concisely define the construct of the schedule’s critical path. Describe      how the identified problem may affect the schedule’s critical path.
  • Assess      whether the estimating method used was appropriate. If so, what would      cause the results to be questionable? If not, what estimating method would      you recommend? Substantively justify your response using cited scholarly      references.
  • Assess      the pros and cons of the extant estimating process; what, if any, changes      would you recommend? Substantively justify your response including      scholarly supporting references. (Please note that extant estimating      is not a term of art in project management. You need to identify the      extant (i.e., existing) estimating process in the organization referenced      in the case study. By doing this, you will specify the current      state-of-project-management in the area of estimating)
