IT Project Management

IT Project ManagementRead the below; GenRays Case Study before completing this task.Scenario:GenRays recently implemented a new centralized system for finance, purchasing, logistics, and accounting. This system has provided cost savings and other benefits to the company. Management expects that similar business benefits would be possible with a new centralized Human Resources Information System (HRIS), which would include payroll functions.Currently a rather primitive payroll system is used, and small teams have been deployed to work in each company location to support local payroll and human resources functions. The proposed HRIS would replace this primitive one.GenRays management has asked you to act as the project manager and lead a project team to put together a plan for the HRIS project that will allow senior executives to determine whether they should proceed with the implementation of a new centralized HRIS. If the plan is approved, the executive sponsors indicate that you may begin implementing the approved plan after W2s are issued in the new year, but all system elements must be functional before year-end closing.Task:
