1. How do we eliminate politics from gate review meetings?
Gate review meetings are a form of project close. Gate review meeting could result in the closure of a life-cycle or the closure of the entire project. At each gate, the continuation of the process is decided by the project manager or a steering committee. The decision is based on the information available at the time, including the business case, risk analysis, and availability of necessary resources (e.g., money, people with correct competencies).
Politics exist in any life cycle phase of a project. Two or more people or a group of people is needed for a politics to occur. Politics in

Students in ISDS 3711 are introduced to different quantitative tools. They practice how to apply these tools, how to formulate problems and how to solve them using Excel and different Excel add-ins in the HW assignments. Problems in HW assignments are typically well structured. The students are told which tool they should apply and they are provided with the data that they need. These structured HW assignments do not teach students how to approach an unstructured decision situation where it is not clear which tools to apply and which information to collect. The following HW assignment has been developed as a way for students to practice these important skills.

If the deal falls through, will either party be bound to their commitments as detailed in the LOI? What can the parties do to limit the obligations to the terms of the LOI?
Although LOI's may resemble a contract, they are not entirely binding. If the deal falls through neither party should be bound to any commitment outlined in the LOI unless there are provisions in the LOI like a non-disclosure agreement that is specified to be binding regardless of the status of the deal.

Leading Quietly Case Study
Organizational Behavior |
Traditionally, we think of great leaders as people who bring about change by their charisma, passion, and dedication to a noble cause. Thus, most of us think of leaders as courageous risk takers or in other words, heroes. Yet, in our daily life, we often find that the most effective leaders are rarely public heroes. They maintain a low profile, but do what is right for themselves and their organizations unnoticeably and without casualties. Harvard Business School professor Joseph Badaracco calls them "quiet leaders"--people who choose responsible, behind-the-scenes action over public heroism to resolve tough

This case study assumes the point of view of the Management Consultant specializing in Production. Therefore, Denver Airport considering automated baggage systems should start out by assessing their design and performance of these devices cautiously and far in advanced of their use. They should certainly do this before they allow architects to fix the layout of the airport passenger buildings. This is because a realistically conservative estimate of what automated systems can achieve should influence the design of these facilities. Though this may take time and money, the benefits of a good and reliable baggage system will be reaped at the end.
