Hubble Project Case Study


1. (Part A) What are the important characteristics of the Hubble project that could

lead to significant risks? How would you prioritize these risks? What mitigation

steps were taken in the Hubble project to help minimize the probability or

impact of these risks?

2. (Part A) What elements of traditional project management may be ill-suited to

the Hubble project?

3. (Part B) What alternate approach was proposed by CGI Quebec?

4. (Part B) If CGI implements the modified agile approach, what project risks

remain? What can be done to minimize these remaining risks?
