  • This week, my team planned to meet with Courtney, refine our deliverables, and attend the final BA interview. Our meeting with Courtney went well because she indicated that we are on track to complete our work on time and she gave us some helpful advice for some of our more challenging deliverables. All of our documents are at least drafted and we are now in the process of getting feedback and refining those documents. I was able to attend the interview on Thursday and we are now looking forward to helping the BAs design their prototype.

  • Team: Temple Formula Racing
    Team Member: Jon Kerin.

    Accomplishments for October 7, 2016:
    1) Met with the systems leads as a team to discuss the work breakdown structure and schedule
    2) Created RACI chart, organizational chart, and list of stakeholders

    Goals for October 28, 2016:
    1) Meet with systems leads as a team again to finalize the hierarchy and structure of the WBS and schedule
    2) Schedule meetings with systems leads individually to gather deliverables, tasks, resources, and dependencies
    3) Create a revised budget

    Issues:
    1) The meeting with the engineers did not seem too productive since we did not decide on anything concrete, but it was a conversation that needed to be had. Figuring out how to structure the WBS and schedule is difficult since the project is so complex. We will meet next week for 2–3 hours with as many key stakeholders as possible to finalize these decisions.
