Your company has just hired a new CEO, and you make an appointment with her to discuss a large financial project that you have been managing. You make the following statement: “In our company, each project defines its own process and technology architecture to implement systems. The financial project is behind schedule, and I know how important it is to the company, so I wanted to make you aware that the deadline is at risk.”
The CEO responds, “Why can’t you just shift some staff from less important projects to the financial project?”
Write a 700 words paper that answers the following:
- Explain how you would respond to the CEO.
- Contrast and defend how the lack of processes and standards or explicit processes and standards by the company presents a challenge when making your recommendation(s).
- Suggest a solution that addresses the CEO’s question about this problem.
