SLP Assignment Expectations

The SLP writeup should consist of:

  • The Letters to the Participants, which include
    • Thanks for their participation
    • A summary of their second-round responses
    • An invitation to submit the third round of responses, modified in light of what has been said so far.
  • The third-round responses of the participants, edited to remove identifying information (such as email addresses).
  • Follow the instructions in the BSBA Writing Style Guide (July 2014 edition), available online at https://mytlc.trident.edu/files/Writing-Guide_Trident_2014.pdf.
  • There are no guidelines concerning length.  Write what you need to write – neither more, nor less.
  • In the SLP ONLY, references and citations are NOT required.  However:  If you state a fact, express an opinion, or use a turn of phrase that isn’t your own, then you should credit the source, just like you would in everyday conversation.  (Example:  “In the words of Monty Python, ‘And now for something completely different.’ “)

TEST YOUR UNDERSTANDING II:  Answers

1.  ACD.

2.  13 days.

3.  C. (The first task on the critical path is A.  If it goes over sked by one day, we can crash either C or D.  Crashing C would make up 2 days, which is one day more than we need, but it would only cost $200.  Crashing D would make up one day, but it would cost $300.  So we crash C.)
