The explanation for the problem experienced by Dr. Simons geothermal assessment program would be that the program may not be compatible with the new system, thus it would be reconfigured otherwise, to become compatible, or a new program similar to that would be installed for his use.
The problem that Young made is the failure to ensure perfect installation of electrical wiring, which contributed to the unnecessary delay. She also contributed to the problem by failing to investigate all the staff computers in advance, to ensure that sufficient space had been created, all unnecessary files removed and the necessary program reconfiguration is done, to ensure they were compatible with the new system.
She could have managed the conversion better, by ensuring that all the necessary preparations were done well in advance, to prevent the unnecessary delays. She could have also managed it better by collaborating fully with all the staff and seeking their approval of the project (Kujawski, 361). This way, they would have taken it as their responsibility, to prepare all the requirements to have the project succeed. Collaboration and seeking approval of all the stakeholders in a project is essential for a project to succeed (Kujawski, 357).
