After assessing its pros and cons, would you recommend its development and implementation? Why or why not?In this assignment, you should:Develop a schedule for the design and implementation of the system.Develop a basic Statement of Work (SOW) for the design and implementation of this system so that Requests for Proposal can be sent with the SOW to various vendors.Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this project being managed by employees of La Saveur versus having a contractor manage the project.Provide appropriate rationale and examples to support your answers.Assignment 2 Grading CriteriaMaximum PointsDiscussed in an elaborate manner the potential issues that could arise while developing the required employee tracking system and ways to overcome them.10Identified the biggest challenge for a project manager in this system, and suggested ways how a project manager could overcome it.10Identified the benefits of the employee tracking system.10Assessed the pros and cons of the employee tracking system and provided rationale whether it should be developed and implemented.10Developed a schedule for the design and implementation of the system.10Developed a basic Statement of Work (SOW) for the design and implementation of this system so that Requests for Proposal can be sent with the SOW to various vendors.10Discussed the advantages and disadvantages of this project being managed by employees of La Saveur versus having a contractor manage the project.15Provided appropriate rationale and examples to support the answers.15Presentation and Writing Components:¬†Organization (10)Style (10)Usage and Mechanics (10)APA Elements (10)10Total100
