This is timeline of the project from its design to the operational stage. For example, the team is required to allocate time to each development stage and ensures that all requirement and development of the project is done within the stipulated time. Provision of timeline is important in project development because it helps project management team to countercheck the progress of the development (Carr, 2009). At this stage the project planning team is mandated to consider labour required towards the development of the project. These will include number of managers, supervisors and workers needed for the project development based on the number of activities involves in the project development.
However re-planning is perhaps not always possible due to project constraints such as being too far into the project to make changes and having a strict timeline to adhere to meaning any change results in a delay and expense . External dependants such as companies involved in a project rely on an accurate time line and incorrect prioritising can create risk to the overall delivery of a project. Understanding the severity of project decisions in relation to risk and then prioritising risk based decisions on a project can help to mitigate downtime or loss on a project (Thomset, 2010). When a challenge presents itself it is at the discretion of the project manager to handle it in relation to the critical effect to the project with continuity of the project being at the forefront. Project managers must have a good understanding of the principles and practice of prioritising work regardless of challenges (Newton, 2013).

When a tech is not installing units, he will be responsible for taking work calls for repairs and maintenance. Work calls are important to techs because installing units will not always provide jobs, but repairs will always be steady. Repairs and maintenance will be tougher on techs because it will require more travelling. Maintenance is more challenging to a tech due to the wide variety of problems. Although installing units can have its problems, maintenance is a much more complex process.
We have learned that diversity is needed in every organization to make it stronger. Although with this article it explains that diversity is a negative thing and can cause many situations that can lead to a high employee turnover or termination rate. With having a high turnover and termination rate it can cause an organization to lose more money for having to replace these employees.

When an individual's personal goals are at stake and are not aligned with the organization goals there can be situation of conflict between individual and organization and the individual may had to fight for his personal goals, creating a conflict situation that will hamper success of the project (Janie Sullivan). Another conflict that according to my experience can happen in the organization is of not having Enough Resources. Resource scarcity, time and material can cause teams to undercut, leading to conflict between departments or other work groups. Valuable resources need to be protected, as well as distributed fairly among all the groups. Starting out a project with a clear picture of the resources available will help waylay some of this conflict.
Most likely, people make decisions through identifying and comparing circumstances in order to determine which one produces the most favorable resolution. However, reality tells otherwise. In practice, people use "mental shortcuts" as they make decisions in order to expedite the process of decision making based on common or previous experience and common sense (Vasilescu, 2011). This should not be. Although the use of common sense and previous experience may have positive effects, a person or organization faced with the problem must create a mental matrix as to what should be done in order to fully resolve the issue at hand.
