Introduction:

There are three possible IT projects that can be performed at Global Computing:

1.Coding Performance Improvement project - Even though Global Computers is an IT company, they do not believe they use computing resources wisely because programs are not coded for efficiency.

2.Online Six Sigma Training Project - The project would attempt to lower training costs by moving training to an online format.

3.Web Site Redesign Project - The Company's corporate web site has grown and Global Computers is unsure that it meets current customer needs and is attracting new customers.

4.Wireless Technology Project - There have been great advancements in wireless technology and Global Computers is not taking advantage of them.

The overall goal of Global Computers is to sponsor the project that will make the biggest impact in benefit while minimizing the cost.
