Dr. Patricia A. Lapoint, Professor of Management at McMurry University, along with co-author Dr. Carrol R. Haggard, Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Fort Hays State University, presented the case study “Project Management (Part C):  Crashing the Schedule” to the International Academy of Case Studies at the recent meeting of the Allied Academies. The case was named as the top case submitted to the conference.

The case is the third in a series that examines the process of project management.  This specific case explores the issue of what happens (in terms of added expense) when upper management shortens the timeline for completing the creation of a new product.  The case examines the conflict that is created among team members when they are placed in a difficult situation.
