8. Reply to this DQ posting of another student:

According to Lewis (2011), “if you are going to control a project, you need to know two things: where you are supposed to be, and where you are” (p. 331).  One of the problems we had in my former office was in getting timely information regarding the status of the various parts of a project.  Sure, we had our weekly status meetings with the contractor.  However, the information/status was as of a previous date…usually the week prior.  So, by the time we learned of it, we were hearing old news.  As long as everything was running smoothly, this wasn’t a problem for us.  However, when there were unexpected challenges, then it required us to make several phone calls.  The project manager on the contractor side was good about keeping the government side informed of any problems, and they did rather well.  Still, I can’t help but feel there was just a bit of reactionary mode being exhibited by those on the government side.  Maybe the best value for their money was to just pay someone else to handle the work????
