MGT613 Operations Management- Assignment: Analysis Paper

Read/review the following resources for this activity:

· Textbook: Chapter 3, 4, Video Case Managing Hard Rock’s Rockfest

· Lecture

· File (PDF): Presentation (Prentice Hall, 11e) - Chapter 3, 4 (in Course Documents)

· Link (video):(video length 9:24 minutes)

· Minimum of 2 resources

You will be analyzing a large event and the project management that is involved in the successful execution of the project. Read Video Case: Managing Hard Rock’s Rockfest in the textbook and watch the accompanying video.

The video highlights Rockfest, which is an annual concert put on by Hard Rock. The concert lasts for 13 hours and is attended by over 100,000 fans. Planning for the event begins nine months ahead of time. Microsoft Project is heavily featured in this video. This project includes all kinds of very different tasks, from booking and transporting bands to providing sufficient trash facilities to working with sponsors to providing food venues to building a massive stage. One way that the firm kept things coordinated is to have periodic calls with managers of these various tasks to provide updates to and coordination with the rest of the group. One concert even had a set of Midway rides available, creating a carnival (and event in itself) within the larger event of the concert. Such an undertaking would be virtually impossible without software such as Microsoft Project.
