You are to prepare a brief paper, but a minimum of three single-spaced (six double-spaced) pages for the body of your text, based on the following:
Choose an organization that you work for, or one with which you are familiar. Describe the following for the organization you have chosen:
the formal organization structure (functional, matrix, project-based, or a hybrid of these) that currently exists informal structures and relationships and how they affect work, how teams are formed how teams are managed, power structure and resulting politics, and other items you think might have an impact on IT project management. Discuss the positive or negative effects the existing formal and informal structures are having on projects within the organization (or might have if you do not have information on current projects). Finally, discuss what changes might be made in the organization to improve team management and project performance.
Be certain to support your arguments for change, including citing at least two references in addition to course materials. References should be obtained from UMUC Library Databases of your choice (Use the Library Databases link under Library on the upper right menu of Web Tycho) and may include sources from scholarly or professional journals. Use APA format for citations.
