Project plans outline the intended course of events; however, things don’t always happen as intended. Organizations need to consider risks and develop a contingency plan. This plan is typically presented to management.
Based on your prior research (on Tesla Inc.), determine potential risk factors for not meeting each of the project objectives. Develop a contingency plan for each of the potential risks. Add the potential risks and contingency plan to your Wk 4 – Apply: Project Plan assignment.
Create a 12- to 14-slide presentation with detailed speaker notes and visuals on every slide in which you:
Identify the organization’s information presented in Wk 1. (Tesla Inc.)
Synthesize the SWOT analysis and market trend research.
Explain how the project objectives will advance the organizational goals.
Assess how success will be measured.
Evaluate the value this project will bring to the organization.
Identify project metrics, timelines, and responsible parties.
Develop a contingency plan for each of the potential risk factors for not meeting each of the project objectives.
Perhaps because language is such an innate part of human existence, many become invested in legends like that of a dolphin language. Furthermore, fascinated as we are by ourselves, we yearn to know more about just exactly how special we are; for some, this means studying birds in the hopes to gain insight into the evolution of human speech. Clearly, birds have no difficulties understanding each other, but recent research is working to determine how perceptive birds are to human noises. The verification of this ability would suggest that there is some innate capability within the animal kingdom that allows for the possibility of speech rather than having evolved separately in humans. One study tested this by having birds listen to a variety of people of various sexes pronouncing common English vowels such as /a/ as in hot, /æ/, as in hat, and /ɛ/ as in bet. Additionally, the birds were tested to determine if they could distinguish common consonants /b/ and /p/, or /g/ and /c/. The results showed that birds did indeed possess the ability to differentiate between these human phonemes and remained consistent even when the voices projected were from different speakers. These conclusions add useful information to the timeline of the evolution of speech in humans: some form of phonemic distinction appear evolved long ago, or else emerged convergently (Beckers 2011). Vocal communication amongst a wide variety of species has always captured the human imagination. Some of the most notable vocalizations are produced by songbirds and play a key role in mating behaviors. By contrast, dolphins use sound to communicate socially and give wonder to viewers with their intelligence and signals to each other. Within both species are many avenues for further exploration. Do dolphins have a language of their own? Why would some birds mimic the cries of other species when this would appear to discourage potential intraspecific mates? There is still much to be learned about both types of organisms, and studying their behaviors gives us as people some perspective as to our place in this world. As we learn more about the shared characteristics in language between ourselves and other species, and consider the evolution of speech, a defining characteristic of humanity, it is humbling to realize that we, too, are all just animals.>GET ANSWER
