Memorial in Washington DC

The post has tw asighnments

1:Choose either the MLK Memorial in Washington DC or the 9/11 Memorial in NYC

1. What specifically did the designer do in the memorial that you think is remarkable, unique, interesting, or noteworthy? Tell me about at least two different
features or details that stood out to you when researching.

2. Let’s pretend that you have the opportunity to travel to see the memorial you chose. What specific part or parts of the memorial would you be most interested in
experiencing in person? Why? (Please don’t answer “all of it”)
3. What do you think about any controversy surrounding the memorial? What is that controversy? (There is controversy surrounding both of these, so do some research.
Also for the 9/11, it is not true that family members of those lost have to pay)
4. Really think about what you’ve seen and learned about the memorial. Name one or two other elements that you think the designer should or could have included in the
final memorial—or what is something you would have done differently or would like to see added to what is already there? You must come up with something.

5.-What elements or factors make for a successful monument? (Consider the viewer, the country, the soldiers, children, adults, young, old- these are related but
different audiences?)

2:Complete and submit the following questions.

1. How would a project manager supervise a critical path task differently than a non-critical path task?

2. What is “project slack” and how would you determine slack?

3. When using AON networks, how does one indicate an event such as a project milestone?

4. Briefly explain how a Gantt chart maybe deceptive in its apparent simplicity?

5. Will all the activities on a non-critical path have the same slack? Why or why not?

6. Explain what composes a “dummy activity?”

7. As a project manager, how could you use the network approach to help prepare cost estimates?

8. It has been said the project manager must actively supervise the project team as well as the project. As a project manager, explain actually what this means to you?

9. From a project manager’s perspective, given all the estimating done to determine the duration of project activities, what does it mean to say: “only after the fact
do you know which path was actually the critical path?”

10. In your opinion, after reading and studying this chapter, do you think project managers use the MSP’s Gantt chart format more often than the network format? Why or
why not?
