Project Management: Orion Shield Project Case Study It is always at the best interest of project managers, clients, and contractors to have a given project accomplished within a stipulated planned schedule and satisfactorily without causing increase in originally estimated project cost. Orion Shield Project is a case study that pities a recently appointed project manager with a reputed and respected one and nearly a half decade experience as project engineer whose name is Gary Allison, against his company and project client. The contracted company in this case is Scientific Engineering Corporation (SEC) while the client’s is Space Technology Industries (STI).
Although, Gary is an accomplished project engineer, the transition from employee to manager is not as easy as he thought. Supervising a team, understanding the working dynamic of your team, and knowing how communicate with your team is a project managers skill. Throughout the scenario below Gary failed to make the right decision, lead his team, and communicate with is customer, superiors, and team. We discuss the Gary’s Situation, the project, the project issues, what Gary did right and what he did wrong and finally, what I do differently.

The principal goal of project management is achieving desired results within a set timeline and budget (Haynes, 2010). This means that project implementation has to be effective in time management, resource use, and communication for it to achieve the desired results. A project manager should identify, and implement the most appropriate control systems throughout the lifespan of a project. Good control over a project is essential for success, as poor control due to ineffective strategies will result to unpleasant outcomes. Poor implementation of project control measures applied as the principal reason for the failure of Gary Allison in the management of Orion Shield Project (University of Maryland, 2003).

Leadership, management, and organizational structure Leadership and management played a vital role in the company technological advantages in recent years. First,
This is a very dangerous job, but I feel that human space exploration is a necessary risk to find ways to better our planet or maybe seek the possibility of living on another planet. Space exploration is very costly but without the use of satellites, the lack of them would impact society; especially the multimedia systems we use each day. Does human spaceflight really produce any gains in our scientific understanding to justify the costs and high risks (Argosy University course material discussion, 2011)? Human Space Exploration: Cost, Risk, Time, and Resources Robert Park has argued that in essence, humans are overrated: robots can perform the same quality of science as humans on the surface of mars, at order of magnitude lower costs (Foust, 2004). I disagree with using robots because they are not human and can’t see, smell or feel what humans can.
Another scenario with similar consequences is the interruption of communication of missions already under way. The dropped communication and navigational equipment would wind up with mission failure and the loss of valuable time money and even more valuable lives. The more likely of result of deleting a configuration already in use is the loss of sipr, nipr or phone lines to someone very important. Said person of higher rank would be very pissed off and could proceed to determine the person in charge of the strategic site and flip out on there command. Then it would roll downhill until the soldier responsible for the error received corrective training.
Peter’s view was that we reach a peak not because of gender or race, but a ceiling of mental competence. It became aware to him that some people shouldn’t advance in their field because of their inability to be competent in the position that awaited them when the promotion came. While this defect may not show up immediately, it became apparent that sooner or later a problem would arise and then it became evident that advancing so far up the corporate ladder so to speak was not the best course of action for that particular person. The modes of narration and exemplification are used in this essay by the author to get express his idea of the challenges that are faced by employees of all industries of business that are in the world’s economy. This idea becomes explained with the case of J. S. Minion.
