Executive Summary

No plan in place for an effective process from start to opening night of play.
Volunteers and Students
Run mostly by volunteers who need to balance school life and work life with putting in time to the Play. Can’t push too much to try and speed tasks up as they may resist and not become happy with what they are doing. As well most of December is not available for rehearsal or set production due to exam schedules of the students and the university closes down for a week over Christmas.
Strict Budget
The USC provides a strict budget for the committee to run off and ½ of it is set to go against fixed costs. There is very little room for the committee to spend extra money on helping to speed up tasks.
New Producer Every Year
Every year a new producer is chosen to run the production of the operetta. The producer is a full-time student who also doesn’t have an overabundance of time to dedicate to the project. With replacing the producer every year, the person has to start off with little experience or insight as to what needs to be planned or done in order to make sure opening night goes off without a hitch. No Clear Direction where to start planning for the production every year.
Environmental and Root Cause Analysis
The G&S Society mandate is to give students, faculty and alumni an opportunity to participate in and enjoy high quality theatre productions at affordable prices. This 1993/1994 season marked the Society’s 40th year to put on a famous operetta. Which means the production needs to look even more professional while keeping to the budget set by the Student’s Association.
Every year a new producer is selected to produce the show and keep all the different functions on task and meeting the targeted deadlines. Each year the producer must develop their own work schedule will all tasks included that are required to meet the deadline of opening night. Due to the lack of formal organization chart that outlines authority, control and report creates challenges as well open communication among all functions is critical to ensure deadlines are being met.
Given the timeframe as to when budget is approved and the producer can proceed with tasks everything needs to run smoothly and on-time. There isn’t much room to delay the start of tasks especially along the critical paths to meet the opening night. Opening night is critical for the operetta as how it is performed will lead to positive feedback in newspapers and talk around campus. Based on how it goes will lead to more ticket sales for the following performances.
With a majority of the tasks being completed by volunteers, who have other obligations, results in little ability to push them for extra time to catch up on tasks which are delayed. As well can’t jeopardize the quality of the performance or sets due to pushing the volunteers or putting the wrong people into roles they can’t do. Poor quality does not fit with what the operetta wants to showcase and could lead to poorer...
