It is essential to provide the first-hand experience to the customers so that the customer can buy it after realizing the quality provided by the company.
the company wants to open a second showroom to increase its physical presence as the company has only one showroom located in Ormond 3204. It is difficult for the company to attract new customers from different states as the customer cant do purchase the heavy products without looking at the product first hand.

I divided 5-6 sections to analyze the personal skills to enhance and determine the strength as well as areas of improvement. It is required to contribute to the completion of the project. The sections include information seeking skills, ability, and willingness to learn new things, general business skills, communication skills, leadership skills, and managerial skills (Cottrell et al., 2015).

There are various situations where I have managed the stress level, and sometimes I try to cope up with the stress, but I am failed to do so. It is one of the areas of improvement where I have to improve as a project manager in the consulting team. I am a little worried about everything which turns into stress, but I am working on coming up with the pressure to manage the work effectively.
I am having time management skills but sometimes whatever completion time I have taken to complete the work fall short due to uncertainties, so I need to work upon this.
I need to start working on time management and stress management to manage the project in an effective manner which will contribute towards the successful opening of the second showroom in another state. Following steps helps to improve the skill of time management
Development of calendar I will develop the timing of the project which allows completing the overall project on time.
Consideration of uncertainties I will consider all the possible events in order to complete the project on time.
Distribution of work into milestones The work will be distributed in each part which helps to complete everything and cover all the aspects of the project.
From the above analysis, it can be concluded that the company Entanglements Metal Art Studio needs to develop its new market where the opportunity and trends are high. The company requires to analyze to check the viability of the project which helps to grow its business successfully. It is essential to check the resource availability, competitor analysis, state laws and regulations, cost analysis, and other aspects critical to establish the second project successfully in the new market.

It also includes supplier analysis, customer analysis, stakeholder analysis, and other relevant sources to collect the primary and secondary information to conduct the research which helps to check the viability of the project. In a personal development audit, it is founded that the lack of time management skills needs to be improved so that the role of a project manager can be successfully done for contributing towards the achievement of project objectives within a specific period.
