Workers will work if they are challenged and motivated. µY¶ people are self-led. They include responsibility. Hygiene agents are the expectations all workers have: job security. appreciation of work. Arrow Diagram Method (ADM) aka Activity-on-Arrow (AOA) allows dummy activity Conditional diagram method. This technique is also called activity-on-node (AON) and is the method used by most project management software packages. opportunity to excel. education. recognition. people will work in relation to the expected reward of the work Achievement Theory: people need three things: achievement . and no additional credit until it is 100% complete Human Resource Maslow¶s Hierarchy of Needs: there are five layers of needs for all human: 1) physiological 2) safety 3) social needs (ex. Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT) allows loop 4 . and need to be micromanaged. a paycheck. In other words.: love and friendship) 4) self-esteem 5) crowning jewel (self actualization) Herzberg¶s Theory of Motivation: there are two catalysts for workers: hygiene agents and motivating agents Hygiene agents: these do nothing to motivate. but their absence demotivates workers. power and affiliation Time Management Precedence diagramming method (PDM). Think participative management Expectancy Theory: people will behave based on what they expect as a result of their behavior. It allows no credit for the work until it is 50% complete. and advancement. and other basic attributes associated with employment Motivating agents: these are the elements that motivate people to excel. motivated. a sense of belonging. opportunity. and other opportunities associated with work other than just financial rewards McGregory¶s Theory of X and Y: this theory states µX¶ are lazy. and can accomplish things on their own Ouchi¶s Theory Z: this theory holds that the workers are motivated by a sense of commitment.0/50/100 is a method to track completion of work packages. don¶t want to work. This is a method of constructing a project network diagram that uses boxes or rectangles (nodes) to represent the activities and connects them with arrows that show the dependencies. clean and safe working conditions. civil working relationship.

73% = 99. transferred or mitigated.99985% 5 . They may also include minor risks that have been accepted after changing the project plan.Qualitative Risk Analysis versus Quantitative Risk Analysis Qualitative Risk Analysis: What are the chances that a risk event will occur? What would the impact be if the event does occur? Outputs: Prioritized list of risks and Overall risk ranking for the project Quantitative Risk Analysis: this is all about assigning hard numbers to the risk Tool and techniques: Interviewing.27% = 95. Workarounds are implemented for unanticipated risk events for which no response was planned Order of Magnitude Estimate Budget Estimate Definitive Estimate Preliminary Estimate Sigma -25% . Secondary risks are those that arise from taking action on a primary risk One of the things Monte Carlo analysis would show is where schedule risk exists on the project. Decision Tree Analysis.
