Project Management

This week’s reading explores the way in which the structure of an organization can influence how projects are managed. For your initial post identify an organization that you are familiar with. It can be your current workplace, or another company that you are familiar with. Describe the organizational structure of the organization you identified and compare it to the organizational structures defined in this module’s reading. Then, address the following:
• What type of organizational structure best describes your organization?
• Does your organization have a project manager?
o If so, discuss the project manager’s role. How much authority and resource availability does the project manager have? Who manages the project budget? Does the project manager have administrative staff or a project team?
o If your organization does not have a project manager, describe how your organization manages projects. Who selects projects and decides upon resources for projects?
• What positive or negative influence does your organizational structure have on the success or failure of projects?
