Company Division Relocation Project Background:
It is your first week back at work after the new year break, and you have just received a call from a senior Vice President at your company, Sally Jones. She confirmed the rumors that have been whispered at the water cooler for the past few months—the customer service center for your company is going to be relocated from Boston to Dallas, TX. She also kindly lets you know that your team has been tapped to oversee the logistics of the move. The move should be finalized and the new service department open by September 1, 2014. She wants a detailed plan produced within the next 10 weeks to cover every aspect of the project. During your conversation she provides you with some high level details about what the project will include:
• Securing 10,000 sq. ft. of office space currently available in Dallas where your company has a regional office; no modifications will be required to the structure, as you will adapt to the existing office space layout; you will need to hire a local attorney and real estate broker to accomplish this
• Planning and executing the build out of the 10,000 sq. ft. of office space, which should include cubicles and chairs for 25 employees, 1 reception area setup to include receptionist desk, chair, and 5 visitor chairs, office furniture for four executive offices and 1 conference room that should accommodate up to 16 individuals. You will work with the Property Services Union represented by SEIU to execute the install and setup of the office space (http://www.seiu.org/propertyservices/); you will need an interior designer to help with the space layout and select appropriate accessories, such as wall art and the like. The bathrooms and employees kitchen/lounge is already completed.
• Relocating and installing all IT equipment from the office in Boston to Dallas; you will work with the Communication Workers of America local Union office (http://district6.cwa-union.org/) for all labor associated with the install of the IT equipment.
• Securing a relocation assistance company in Dallas to work with employees who wish to relocate; coordinating with employees to see who will relocate; a deadline of April 25 is set for Boston based employees to commit to relocating to the new Dallas office. You will coordinate with the Human Resource department to ensure that any open positions are filled in Dallas.
• Two member of your team will need to make bi-weekly visits to the Dallas area beginning in April through the opening in September to oversee the progress and see to onsite matters.
• You will need to do a phased opening, so that there is no down time with the customer service department.
• She has not given you a budget, as she first wants to see a top down estimate from your team, which is due asap.
• She wants a bi-weekly report from you beginning in February.
After a brief discussion with her, you go back to your office and put together the following preliminary scope document based on your brief conversation with Sally.
