Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.In Unit 2 through Unit 4 assignments, you will continue to complete tasks that will assist you in the completion of a project for your boss. This is a simulation of a project in the Operations Department of your company where the goal is to continually look for opportunities to reduce costs. Reducing cost in operations will contribute toward the organization’s ability to increase profit. You are the project manager and your boss is the Vice President of Operations. Your boss is new to the department and company so he is depending on your input to help meet the company goal. He called a meeting with you at the beginning of the new year and asked you to do some research using some company year-ending data to identify an initiative that will help your department to contribute toward the company’s goal of reducing costs in the organization by 20%. Your boss specifies that he wants you to use real data in your analysis and that you must provide a graphical presentation when reporting your final recommendations to him at the end of February. Your boss indicates you have no restrictions in your recommendations but that your proposal must be supported by viable data analysis. You are tasked with identifying team members who have the appropriate qualifications to provide input for your recommendations. Your department has qualified technology support people, business analysts, operations support people, six sigma certified staff, administrative staff, and subject matter experts. Your boss has indicated you will have one week to provide a plan of the steps you will take and the names of team members you will need for the project. NOTE: This is an individual project in this course but you should give thought to who might provide the best assistance if you were completing this project in your organization.Assignment Details: As the project manager, describe the plan (the tasks) toward the final presentation, your timeline and the people (with the appropriate skills) you would have on your team to complete the project (the final presentation of the recommendation to your boss.) This is a simulated team based on your department that you must describe in a business (you may use an existing company or one you make up and you must also briefly describe the products and services of the business). Post your response.
