DeliDrinks is a food processing company based in Australia. For years, we have provided our customers with the best variety of fresh fruit juices gaining a leadership position in the market. Our products are popular for being made from 100% natural ingredients. However, over the past year, we have noticed a decrease in the sales of our products. As a result, the Project Management Office (PMO) was tasked with the responsibility of looking into the matter and making recommendations to the company board. A project team consisting of twelve members was put together, including the project team manager.
They were provided with a budget of ten thousand shillings to conduct research and report back to the company board of governors. The project time frame was three months ending 4th September 2016, during which they were to use all available resources to inform our research, draw conclusions, and make suitable conclusions to the board. The project manager has asked me to be part of a team reviewing team leadership in the above-mentioned project.
To carry out the above task, I have first prepared the annotated bibliography below reviewing literature relevant to the topic. 2. Annotated bibliography2.1.
