Need help in writing a case study 14.3 (Page numbers 500 and 501) at the end of Project management achieving competitive advantages 4th edition by Jeffery K Pinto chapter 14 . Explain about the case and answer all the 4 questions in the case study. The case study shall be in APA format with a minimum of 4 outside references.
Questions in the case study
1. The U.S. Department of Defense has a long history of sponsoring projects that have questionable
usefulness. If you were assigned as a member of a
project review team for a defense project, what criteria would you insist such a project has in order
to be supported? In other words, what are the bare
essentials needed to support such a project?
2. Why, in your opinion, is there such a long history of defense projects overshooting their budgets or failing some critical performance metrics?
(Consider other project cases in this text, including the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle discussed
in Chapter 5.)
3. “The mystery is not that the Zumwalt was canceled. The mystery is why it took so long for it to
be canceled.” Do you agree with this assessment?
Why or why not?
4. Google “criticisms of the Littoral Combat Ship”
and identify some of the problems that critics
have listed. In light of these problems, why do
you think the Navy has pressed ahead with the
development of the LCS?
