The Columbia Gas of Massachusetts case – Your assignment is to identify 3 to 4 project management issues and provide a draft of solutions and the pros and cons of each. This draft is ungraded. Your facilitator/instructor/grader will let you know if you are on the right track for a good Case Study Report based on this draft, which can be in basic bulleted form. In fact, here is a template you can use to facilitate getting your ideas together and we suggest you use this to submit your draft:

IMPORTANT NOTE: the student in this example included a “solution ranking matrix”. This is a nice tool to be familiar with but it is not required for the assignment. Feel free to include one for ‘extra consideration’ but it is not required.
As one more example, here is one more example using the Columbia Gas case, with text hidden (redacted) to show what the final product will look like (of course, your version will have no redaction!).

IMPORTANT: the file above is, as it says, only meant to help you with structure. IT IS NOT MEANT AS A SOURCE OF TEXT for your document. Blackboard is enabled with applications that sense copied text and if detected, not only is your ability to earn points going to be severely restricted, there is significant disciplinary action possible for this activity.
See the Grading Guidance in the Individual Assignment 2 Final section below.
