You are a project manager for Kitchen Heaven, a chain of retail stores specializing in kitchen utensils, cookware, dishes, small appliances, and some gourmet foodstuffs, such as bottled sauces and spices. You’re fairly new to the position, having been hired to replace a project manager who recently retired. Kitchen Heaven currently owns 49 stores in 34 states and Canada. The world headquarters for Kitchen Heaven is in Denver, Colorado. Counting full‐time and part‐time employees, the company employs 1,500 people, 200 of whom work at headquarters. The company’s mission statement reads, “Great gadgets for people interested in great food.”
Recently, the vice president of marketing paid you a visit. Dirk Perrier is a very nice, well‐dressed man with the formal air you would expect a person in his capacity might have. He shakes your hand and gives you a broad, friendly smile. “We’ve decided to go forward with our 50th store opening! Sales are up, and our new line of ceramic cookware is a hot seller, no pun intended. I don’t know if you’re familiar with our store philosophy, so let me take a moment to explain it. We like to place our stores in neighborhoods that are somewhat affluent.
The plain fact is that most of our shoppers have incomes of more than $150,000 a year. So, we make an effort to place our stores in areas where those folks usually shop. “We’re targeting the type of customer who watches the Food Network channel and must have all the gadgets and tools they see the famous chefs using. So, the stores are upbeat and convey a fun, energetic feel, if you will. “Our next store is going to be right here in our home area— Colorado Springs. Because this is going to be our 50th store, we plan on having a 50th grand‐opening celebration, with the kind of surprises and activities you might expect for such a notable opening. “Our stores generally occupy from 1,500 to 2,500 square feet of retail space, and we typically use local contractors for the build‐out.
A store build‐out usually takes 120 days from the date the property has been procured until the doors open to the public. I can give you our last opening’s project plan so you have a feel for what happens. Your job will be to procure the property, negotiate the lease, procure the shelving and associated store furnishings, get a contractor on the job, and prepare the 50th store festivities. My marketing folks will assist you with that last part. “You have six months to complete the project. Any questions?”

You take in a deep breath and collect your thoughts. Dirk has just given you a lot of information with hardly a pause between thoughts. A few initial ideas drift through your head while you’re reaching for your notebook. You work in a functional organization with a separate projectized department responsible for carrying out projects of this nature. You’ve been with the company long enough to know that Dirk is high up there in the executive ranks and carr
