Case Study: A new hotel, City Towers, is to be constructed in the Docklands area of
London. As part of the specification of the construction Hotel Communications Ltd
has been given the contract to install, test and commission the IT and communication
infrastructure for the hotel. Specific aspects of the remit include the provision of IT
facilities for marketing and booking, TV and radio provision for hotel rooms, CCTV,
and appropriate IT facilities in meeting rooms and in a conference centre.
Hotel Communications Ltd has a long history of supplying IT infrastructure to the
hospitality sector. However their experience has mainly been at the lower end of the
market and this is the first time they have been commissioned to work with a five star
hotel. Senior management is particularly keen that the fulfilment of this contract is a
success since they hope that this sector of the market would be a significant source
of business growth for the company in the future.
You have been headhunted from a rival IT company to act as Project Manager for
Hotel Communications Ltd. You have a long record of success in providing bespoke
IT facilities for a number of blue-chip companies. Senior management is understandably nervous so they ask you to write a report (2,300 words +/- 10%).
From a project management perspective outline the activities required to successfully manage this new initiative, ensuring that it is on time, and within budget.
The analysis should include the skills and competencies required by the Project Manager, along with the project management process. Use examples of the concerns, Project Life Cycle stages, processes, leadership, and administration and
control problems associated with managing the lifecycle of this major project.
