Part 1: After studying the project management process groups at the beginning of Chapter 3, estimate how much time and money you would spend in each of these process groups on your project. Assume you have one year and $100,000 to spend. Justify your estimates as to why you chose the percentages you did.

- What do you think the real problem was in this case?
- Does the case present a realistic scenario? Why or why not?
- Was Nick Carson a good project manager? Why or why not?
- What should top management have done to help Nick?
- What could Nick have done to be a better project manager?
