PROJECT PLANNING AND HUMAN CAPITAL
Project Planning and Human CapitalMGT/437Project Planning and Human CapitalIntroductionTeam A has mapped out all of the phases and milestones to be met during the different building stages of the project. The project manager will report to the Chief Executive during the first milestone of the project which is the building of the first deck. The first deck is the focus point of how all the remaining decks will be built. This includes cost, time, manpower and any changes that will be needed. The executive manager along with the project manager put a plan in force to discuss communication management, the team selection process, project revisions and performance monitoring and how the two of them could remain on top of these decisions.Communication ManagementThe project manager is responsible for communicating with the team members and management.

The project manager will also discuss with the executive manager any budget changes that may occur due to unforeseen circumstances. The meeting will be held the day before the projects final completion to discuss the remaining phases of the parking garage and to discuss any changes in the budget. Literature and handouts will be passed out in the project review meeting.Team SelectionThe project organization structure selected for the Memorial Hospital parking garage is a pure project organizational structure.
