The Recreation and Wellness Intranet Project team is working hard to ensure that the new system they develop meets expectations. The team has a detailed scope statement, but the project manager, Tony Prince, wants to make sure they’re not forgetting requirements that might affect how people view the quality of the project. He knows that the project’s sponsor and other senior managers are most concerned with getting people to use the system, improve their health, and reduce healthcare costs. Users want the system to be user-friendly, informative, fun to use, and fast.
1. Develop a list of quality standards or requirements related to meeting the stakeholder expectations described in the Running Case. Also provide a brief description of each requirement. For example, a requirement might be that 90 percent of employees have logged into the system within two weeks after the system rolls out.
2. Based on the list created for Task 1, determine how you will measure progress on meeting the requirements. For example, you might have employees log into the system as part of the training program and track who attends the training. You could also build a feature into the system to track usage by user name, department, and other criteria.
3. After analyzing survey information, you decide to create a Pareto chart to see which types of recreational programs and company-sponsored classes generated the most interest. First, create a spreadsheet in Excel using the data in the following table. List the most frequently requested programs or classes first. Use the template on the text’s companion Web site.
