P.S. In Problem 2, I think it is necessary to do a Project Charter but I am not sure. I live it up to you to decide.
After two months of the project, which intends to launch a relevant product to the market, the project manager, when meeting with the team, verifies that in the next two weeks practically the whole team is unexpectedly on vacation.
Imagine that you were recently invited to be the director of operations for a logistics company and that you detected that there are exaggerated paper costs. All operation records are printed, the contract with the paper supplier has been unchanged for 10 years, among others. In order to be able to present an initiative to solve this problem in the organization, present in detail how you would define the beginning of this project and what would justify it. If necessary, make assumptions.
