    Presentation: Pearl Harbor, a Project Management Perspective (Part 1)

    December 7, 1941, or, in President F.D. Roosevelt’s words, “a date which will live in infamy.”  Could the Japanese surprise attack have been avoided?   If defending the Hawaiian island of Oahu against internal and external threats was the primary objective of the military authorities, could the U.S. forces have been better prepared?  Just how good was Japan’s plan for “Operation Hawaii”? This presentation will address how project management could have helped mitigate or outright avoid one of the darkest days in the history of the United States. 

    Part 2 of this presentation will be delivered at the July SW meeting.
