Project Management Paper 2
Achieving Project Goals:Operation Elephants’ Ark”
Based on the necessity of the organization, projects may take on various forms. As
stated within the week two summary, “the project requirements form the foundation upon

to transport eight elephants across Africa to a safe habitat. Multinational companies and
wealthy individuals provide resources to the Huduma Foundation. Limitations identified within
the simulation and perspective change will be discussed herein.
The first approach to project planning is “work breakdown”; a hierarchy of individuals
specializing in differing fields at differing times is most effective. In addition, the Project
Managerproject manager must visualize the plan for bottlenecks during the project. Within the
simulation, Huduma Foundations goal is to transport eight elephants to the airport before
departure which proved to be a challenge. In order to achieve their goal, Huduma Foundation
needs to sedate the elephants, load them onto trucks, and place them onto airplanes while
reviving from sedation. However, this task became even more difficult when one of the
transport trucks broke down. Due to time constraints the Project Managerproject manager
