You must complete a risk register for the risks contained below, and then write a memo (400-600 words) to your boss which 1)outlines the top two risks and why they are the highest risks, 2)provides contingency plans for those two risks, and 3)shares how the top two risks will be monitored.

Refer back to the systems project you selected for module 3. Assume the project team has already
Determined the system’s functional and non-functional requirements
Received budget approval
Selected the vendor
Negotiated and signed a contract with the vendor
Developed a detailed task list
Finalized the system test plan
Subsequently, the following events were reported to and/or from the project team. You must complete a risk register for the risks contained below, and then write a memo (400-600 words) to your boss which 1)outlines the top two risks and why they are the highest risks, 2)provides contingency plans for those two risks, and 3)shares how the top two risks will be monitored.
Risks shared with or by the project team
The company lost a big account which will reduce the company’s cash flow by 10% starting in about six months when the current contract ends. The CFO has indicated that if those sales aren’t replaced, the company may need to slow down some projects and their corresponding payments to conserve cash. He thinks that the slowdown would only push projects back three to six months.
Your senior manager of IT applications that sat on the team put in his resignation. His boss is the senior director of infrastructure and applications. While he has agreed to stand in and attend the meetings, he is already short 2 senior managers and the company has several other large projects occurring. He did say he will put out a job listing immediately to try to hire someone.
The company you hired has indicated that one of the features you wanted will only be available in a future release of the software. You thought it was already live but the project team has misinterpreted the software company’s communication on the matter. The lack of this release will make internal reporting more difficult until the release is complete. You’ve asked for a software roadmap so you get a sense of the planned timeline.
Finance has indicated that they forgot to share some requirements for the system that will be important for regulatory reporting. Your company is technically out of compliance in this area today due to a lack of resources. Adding this to the requirements could bring the company into compliance. The VP of Financial Compliance is insisting this must be added.
A company has just sued the software company you selected indicating they’ve stolen proprietary coding and used it in the system you’ve purchased. They want to get an injunction to stop the company from utilizing the software for any further rollouts. The alleged stolen source code that is only part of the reporting module you get from the software company and is not associated with other parts of the system.
Your senior director of IT indicated that after a deeper dive into the software company’s technical specifications, the software is incompatible with a proprietary contract signature tracking system your legal department uses. All the supply chain members are required to utilize the proprietary signature tracking software to ensure the right approval processes and documentation are done. IT is not certain what can be done but might be able to build a workaround but it will cost additional funds.

These should provide details about the project.

Project contract and procurement management involve making a decision to outsource work, developing a statement of work, submitting a request for proposal, awarding the contract, and then managing the procurement until contract completion. Having a detailed procurement plan lowers the risk of nonfulfillment of contracted work. In this class, you are to develop a Contract and Procurement Plan that identifies planning and execution components from developing the statement of work through the final contract delivery.
I have attached this project’s risk management and quality control plans. These should provide details about the project.

Instruction: using the hofstede insights cultural comparison, compare the dimensions of the countries represented usa, china, india, country of your choice.

Geert Hofstede is well known for his cultural dimensions (https://www.mbaskool.com/business-concepts/marketing-and-strategy-terms/1799-cultural-dimensions-hofstede.html#:~:text=Hofstede%20is%20well%20known%20for,the%20difference%20between%20two%20cultures.) theory. He proposed five factors which define the culture of a country. These factors are often used to determine the difference between two cultures. This theory becomes very relevant today as the culture difference needs to be taken into consideration while dealing with global projects.
– Please review this link (https://www.hofstede-insights.com/country-comparison/china,the-usa/)to see how this comparison looks like – It is set for the comparison between China and USA. You can modify it.
– Pls also download and review the attached excel file(will upload to u):

What could help you to get out of your initial response (fight or flight) during a conflict situation?

Part 1: Responding to conflict
What is your initial (primal) response to a conflict situation, fight or flight? Why do you think that is the case?
Consider past experiences with people, your character traits (particularly extraversion and agreeableness), and your culture.
Consider how the response of your parents to conflict situations might have influenced how you see conflict (e.g. if your parents were scared/avoidant of conflict, then chances are you have adopted the same response because your parents served as role models for you when you were growing up).
2. What could help you to get out of your initial response (fight or flight) during a conflict situation?
Consider what will help you to deal with the initial overwhelming emotions so that you can move towards resolving the conflict (elaborate on a specific example of what you could do.)
Think about the things like going to the balcony, naming the game, and using a physical trigger that will help you to “snap out” of the emotional state.
3. What can help you to get into the right emotional state before a conflict situation? (don’t theorise, think about what exactly works for you). How can you ensure that you remember to do this before you step into a conflict situation?
4. Think of a recent occasion when you wanted to let someone else know that you were unhappy or unsatisfied with something but you did not. What did you want to say?
5. How could you have used “I” statements to ensure that you were being heard by the other person while also not blaming that person for the situation (provide examples of the I statements).
6. What have you observed after doing this exercise?How does this exercise inform how you resolve conflict with different people?Are there any patterns?
Note: you don’t have to mention the names of people in this exercise you can just mention the categories (e.g. friend, colleague, partner, parent etc.)
Part 2: Your Conflict Management Style
7. Which conflict management style do you lean towards? What is positive about your conflict management style? What is negative about it?
8. Which conflict management style would you like to work towards? How can that be achieved? (provide specific solutions).
9. What are your biggest limitations in dealing with conflict? What are your biggest strengths? What can you do to improve on your limitations? (For this question use the following 4 links to HBR articles from the ones listed below and refer to them for practical ways in which you could address some of your limitations. )
