Process Improvement Recommendations
As indicated in the table above, the major negative (-) what went wrong issues are more to the people issues which includes the commitment and knowledge of the subject. It is recommended for those who willing to take this course have to set the commitment firmly.
The half commitment student will drag the other team member motivation down. The strong leadership is required in this course to bring the class to success. Firing the non-performer team member or even the program manager or project manager sometimes is necessary action to be taken to safe our project, but I strongly urge to make it professional and not to bring it in personal.
