Case Synopsis:

Designed to examine the process of project management during the development cycle of a luxury condominium building for the Regency Plaza group, this case explores the issue of how the design, development strategy, project organization, and project personnel are interrelated. More specifically, it looks at how these factors shape the day-to-day operations of a development and how they affect the formal and informal mechanisms that a project manager has at his or her disposal.

Case Assignment Questions:

  1. Evaluate the project definition phase of the Regency Plaza project. How do the problems that emerged during the project relate to how the project definition phase was managed?
  2. Evaluate the role of the project manager (Kris Hodgkins) in the case. What skills do you think are required to be the project manager for the Regency Condominium Development Project? How well do you think that Kris Hodgkins meets these skill requirements? Do you think Kris Hodgkins was a good project manager?
  3. Evaluate how well risk was managed in the Regency Plaza project. You should use the four stage Risk Management framework from the module in answering this question.
  4. Given the situation that Kris Hodgkins finds herself with the Millers at the end of the case, evaluate all of the options available to her and recommend the course of action your group thinks she should take?

 

 

 

Guidelines for the written assignment:

  • The report should contain a minimum of 2500 and a maximum of 3000 words. The word count is from the start of the Executive Summary to the end of the Conclusions sections and does not include the cover page, references and appendices.
  • The required format for the layout of the report is as follows:
  1. Cover page as per UCD specifications.
  2. Executive Summary
  • In a single paragraph, summarise the contents of the entire report. This should written last when the rest of the report is completed, so that you know what you are summarizing.
  1. Introduction to the selected project
  • Briefly give an introduction to the project you have chosen to analyse.
  • Outline your plan to analyse the project, i.e. what topics you will use and the elements of theory or frameworks within those topics you will apply to the project.
  1. Analysis of the Project
  • Using the theory in the module topics, analyse the project.
  • You should not spend too many words describing the theory you use (referencing it is sufficient), but devote most of the effort to applying the theory to the information you have obtained about the project.
  1. Discussion and Conclusions
  • In this section, you discuss your findings and explain why the project can be deemed a success or failure – what worked well and why, what didn’t work and why, and what your group would have done differently if you were the project manager.
  • Identify the key learning points in the project and what your group learned from undertaking the assignment.
  1. References
  • All third party material used in the report must be listed here using a formal referencing system such as the Harvard system. These must be correctly cited where used in the body of the report.
  • This assignment will enable students to identify the challenges of Project Management in the global business environment, and to develop the following skills: teamwork due to the group nature of the task, written communication, and research skills from gathering information from multiple sources about their chosen case study.
  • As this is a group assignment, all members of the group will receive the same mark for the written submission of the project. However, all members are also required to state clearly their contribution to the group project at the end of the document.

Overview of Basic Figures of Speech for Writers—Brian Wasko “You are driving me up a wall!”


Overview of Basic Figures of Speech for Writers—Brian Wasko

“You are driving me up a wall!”

My mom used to say that to me a lot when I was a kid. I remember being confused about what she meant. I would get a mental picture of the two of us in a tiny taxi-cab. I was the driver, she was in the back seat, and we were riding vertically up a wall like a spider. It was a weird picture, and I didn’t know what it had to do with my mom being irritated at me (I might have been trying out my new pocket knife on the coffee table or shaving the heads of my sister’s dolls).

Mom was using a figure of speech. Figures of speech are expressions not meant to be taken literally. Literally means precisely as the words indicate; to the letter. In other words, figures of speech mean something, but not exactly what they might seem to mean. Driving someone up a wall, of course, means causing them to be bothered or making them angry.

Kids sometimes have a hard time understanding figures of speech. Have you ever heard a conversation like this among kids?

Ed:       I love pizza!

Ted:     You love it? Do you want to marry it?

Ted may understand what Ed means, which is not literal, but to be funny, he intentionally takes his words literally.

People use figures of speech all the time (in fact, I just used one — I didn’t mean literally “all the time.” I just mean often).

Good descriptive writers are masters of figurative language. Figures of speech allow writers to make comparisons that bring scenes to life in ways literal writing cannot.

There are several common kinds of figures of speech you should learn so you can use them in your writing:

Simile

A simile is a comparison of two things using the words like or as. Similes help your reader make connections to things they are familiar with. Sometimes they reveal an aspect of what you are describing that wouldn’t be apparent otherwise. Similes help communicate subtle impressions and emotions that literal description sometimes can’t.

Examples:

  • The sun rose like a helium balloon into the red morning sky.
  • Shaking his cold, damp hand was like grasping a lake trout.
  • The house was quiet as a cemetery.

 Metaphor

            Metaphors are like similes, except they leave out the words like or as. They also compare things, but by saying one thing is another thing, rather than saying it is like another thing. Simple metaphors normally come in the form A is B.

Examples:

  • Her eyes are radiant sapphires.
  • His bedroom is a museum of things old, decrepit and worthless.
  • After the fight, his fists were throbbing weights dragging at the end of his wrists.

Implied Metaphor

When a metaphor isn’t stated directly (A is B), it’s called an implied metaphor. The comparison is clear, but more subtly stated.

Examples:

  • The rabid sergeant barked his orders. (sergeant = dog)
  • When she removed her hat, her golden hair cascaded over her shoulders. (Her hair = waterfall)

Personification

            Personification is giving human characteristics to non-human things. It’s another way to reveal impressions and create atmosphere.

Examples:

  • The church steeple rose until it tickled the belly of the clouds.
  • The waves slapped the shore and dragged away everything not anchored down.
  • The sun peeked into her bedroom window and summoned the princess from her dreams.

Hyperbole                  

Hyperbole (pronounced  hi-per-bull-lee, not hyper-bowl) is using exaggeration to make a point.

Examples:

  • The song was so lovely that people all over town paused to hear just a note carried by the wind.
  • I laughed so hard I ripped open some internal organs.

Be Original

Be careful not to fall into the habit of repeating dry and dusty old figures of speech that have become cliché. All clichés were creative and original at one time but have lost their zing through overuse. Do the hard work of coming up with your own fresh figures of speech.

“As long as there’s innovation there is going to be new kinds of chaos,” explains Robert Stephens, founder of the technology support company Geek Squad. The chaos Stephens is referring to is the difficulty we have all experienced trying to keep up with the many changes in our environment, particularly those related to computers, technology, software, communication, and entertainment. Generally, consumers have found it difficult to install, operate, and use many of the electronic products available today. “It takes time to read the manuals,” Stephens says. “I’m going to save you that time because I stay home on Saturday nights and read them for you!”

THE COMPANY

The Geek Squad story begins when Stephens, a native of Chicago, passed up an Art Institute scholarship to pursue a degree in computer science. While Stephens was a computer science student he took a job fixing computers for a research laboratory, and he also started consulting. He could repair televisions, computers, and a variety of other items, although he decided to focus on computers. His experiences as a consultant led him to realize that most people needed help with technology and that they saw value in a service whose employees would show up at a specified time, be friendly, use understandable language, and solve the problem. So, with just $200, Stephens formed Geek Squad in 1994.

Geek Squad set out to provide timely and effective help with all computing needs regardless of the make, model, or place of purchase. Geek Squad employees were called “agents” and wore uniforms consisting of black pants or skirts, black shoes, white shirts, black clip-on ties, a badge, and a black jacket with a Geek Squad logo to create a “humble” attitude that was not threatening to customers. Agents drove black-and-white Volkswagen Beetles, or Geekmobiles, with a logo on the door, and charged fixed prices for services, regardless of how much time was required to provide the service. The “house call” services ranged from installing networks, to debugging a computer, to setting up an entertainment system, and cost from $100 to $300. “We’re like ‘Dragnet’; we show up at people’s homes and help,” Stephens says. “We’re also like Ghostbusters and there’s a pseudogovernment feel to it like Men in Black

In 2002, Geek Squad was purchased by leading consumer electronics retailer Best Buy for about $3 million. Best Buy had observed very high return rates for most of its complex products. Shoppers would be excited about new products, purchase them and take them home, get frustrated trying to make them actually work, and then return them to the store demanding a refund. In fact, Best Buy research revealed that consumers were beginning to see service as a critical element of the purchase. The partnership was an excellent match. Best Buy consumers welcomed the help. Stephens became Geek Squad’s chief inspector and a Best Buy vice president and began putting a Geek Squad “precinct” in every Best Buy store, creating some stand-alone Geek Squad Stores, and providing 24-hour telephone support. There are now more than 20,000 agents in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and China, and return rates have declined by 25 to 35 percent. Geek Squad service plans are also being sold on eBay and in some Target stores. The Geek Squad website proclaims that the company is “Serving the Public, Policing Technology and Protecting the World.”

THE CHANGING ENVIRONMENT

Many changes in the environment occurred to create the need for Geek Squad’s services. Future changes are also likely to change the way Geek Squad operates. An environmental scan helps illustrate the changes.

The most obvious changes may be related to technology. Wireless broadband technology, high-definition televisions, products with Internet interfaces, and a general trend toward computers, smartphones, entertainment systems, and even appliances being interconnected are just a few examples of new products and applications for consumers to learn about. There are also technology-related problems such as viruses, spyware, lost data, and “crashed” or inoperable computers. New technologies have also created a demand for new types of maintenance such as password management, operating system updates, disk cleanup, and “defragging.”

Page 89

Another environmental change that contributes to the popularity of Geek Squad is the change in social factors such as demographics and culture. In the past many electronics manufacturers and retailers focused primarily on men. Women, however, are becoming increasingly interested in personal computing and home entertainment and, according to the Consumer Electronics Association, are likely to outspend men in the near future. Best Buy’s consumer research indicates that women expect personal service during the purchase as well as during the installation after the purchase—exactly the service Geek Squad is designed to provide. Our culture is also embracing the Geek Squad concept. For example, in the recently discontinued television series Chuck(2007–2012), one of the characters worked for the “Nerd Herd” at “Buy More” and drove a car like a Geekmobile on service calls!

Competition, economics, and the regulatory environment have also had a big influence on Geek Squad. As discount stores such as Walmart and PC makers such as Dell began to compete with Best Buy, new services such as inhome installation were needed to create value for customers. Now, just as change in competition created an opportunity for Geek Squad, it is also leading to another level of competition as Staples has introduced EasyTech services and Office Depot has introduced Tech Depot services. The economic situation for electronics continues to improve as prices decline and demand increases. Consumers purchased 2 million 3D TVs in 2010, and sales of all consumer electronics exceeded $180 billion. Finally, the regulatory environment continues to change with respect to the electronic transfer of copyrighted materials such as music and movies and software. Geek Squad must monitor the changes to ensure that its services comply with relevant laws.

THE FUTURE FOR GEEK SQUAD

The combination of many positive environmental factors helps explain the extraordinary success of Geek Squad. Today, it repairs more than 3,000 PCs a day and generates more than $2 billion in revenue. Because Geek Squad services have a high profit margin they contribute to the overall performance of Best Buy, and they help generate traffic in the store and create store loyalty. To continue to grow, however, Geek Squad will need to continue to scan the environment and try new approaches to creating customer value.

One possible new approach is to create new partnerships. Geek Squad and Ford, for example, have developed a partnership to help consumers install in-car communication systems. In the future, Best Buy will offer 240-volt home charging stations for Ford’s electric vehicle, the Focus. Geek Squad will offer electrical audits and residential installations for the car owners. Geek Squad is also using new technology to improve. Agents now use a smartphone to access updated schedules, log in their hours, and run diagnostics tests on clients’ equipment. Best Buy is also testing a “Solutions Central” desk, similar to the Genius Bar concept in Apple stores, and staffing it with Geek Squad agents. Finally, to attract the best possible employees, Geek Squad and Best Buy are trying a “results-only work environment” that has no fixed schedules and no mandatory meetings. By encouraging employees to make their own work-life decisions, the Geek Squad hopes to keep morale and productivity high.

Other changes and opportunities are certain to appear soon. However, despite the success of the Geek Squad and the potential for additional growth, Robert Stephens is modest and claims, “Geeks may inherit the Earth, but they have no desire to rule it!”

Questions

1What are the key environmental forces that created an opportunity for Robert Stephens to start the Geek Squad?

2What changes in the purchasing patterns of (a) all consumers and (b) women made the acquisition of Geek Squad particularly important for Best Buy?

3Based on the case information and what you know about consumer electronics, conduct an environmental scan for Geek Squad to identify key trends. For each of the five environmental forces (social, economic, technological, competitive, and regulatory), identify trends likely to influence Geek Squad in the near future.

4What promotional activities would you recommend to encourage consumers who currently use independent installers to switch to Geek Squad?
