PMP Questions and Answers #6

During a meeting with some of the project stakeholders, the project manager is asked to add work to the project scope. The project manager had access to correspondence about the project before the project charter was signed and remembers that the project sponsor specifically denied funding for the scope mentioned by these stakeholders. The BEST thing for the project manager to do is to:

A-) Let the sponsor know of the stakeholders’ request.

B-) Evaluate the impact of adding the scope.

C-) Tell the stakeholders the scope cannot be added.

D-) Add the work if there is time available in the project schedule

The answer is C. Tell the stakeholders the scope cannot be added. After the scope of a project is finalized and the scope baseline is determined, it can be changed only with the approved changed requests. If there is not an approved change request, the existing scope baseline must be valid and the project team must work on delivering that scope only. In the scenario, the scope is defined already but some stakeholders ask to add new work to the scope. This cannot be done unless there is an approved change request. Therefore, stakeholders must be informed that this new work cannot be added.

PMP Questions and Answers #7

Your project management plan results in a project schedule that is too long If the project network diagram cannot change but you have extra personnel resources, what is the BEST thing to do?

A-) Fast track the project.

B-) Level the resources.

C-) Crash the project.

D-) Monte Carlo analysis.

The answer is C, crash the project. Because, in the first sentence, it is mentioned that the schedule is too long, therefore the aim is making a shorter schedule. And in the second sentence, it is mentioned that you have extra personnel resources. If you have resources, you can put more resources into an activity to complete it in a shorter time. And this is actually a description of crashing an activity or crashing the project. If you look to the other options, fast-tracking was performing activities in parallel instead of series, therefore it is irrelevant. Leveling the resources was for fixing the over-allocation of resources and distributing the tasks to all your resources uniformly. And Monte Carlo analysis was another estimating tool which is an irrelevant choice as well. Therefore, here the best answer is C.

PMP Questions and Answers #8

An activity has an early start (ES) of day 3, a late start (LS) of day 13, an early finish (EF) of day 9, and a late finish (LF) of day 19. The activity:

A-) Is on the critical path.

B-) Has a lag.

C-) Is progressing well.

D-) Is not on the critical path.

The answer is D. is not on the critical path. Because if you look to the early start and late start values of the activity, you can find the float or the slack of activity’s time by subtracting the early start, 3 days, from the late start, 13 days. And it gives 10 days of float for this activity. You will find the same result if you go through subtracting the early finish, 9 days, from the late finish, 19 days. Since the float of the activity or the slack of the activity is greater than zero, it’s not on the critical path. Remember the critical path activities were having zero floats, therefore the answer is D.

PMP Questions and Answers #9

Early in the life of your project, you are having a discussion with the sponsor about what estimating techniques should be used. You want a form of expert judgment, but the sponsor argues for analogous estimating. It would be BEST to:

A-) Agree to analogous estimating, as it is a form of expert judgment

B-) Suggest life cycle costing

C-) Determine why the sponsor wants such an accurate estimate

D-) Try to convince the sponsor to allow expert judgment because it is typically more accurate.

The answer is A. Agree to analogous estimating, as it is a form of expert judgment. Since analogous estimating is a type of expert judgment you can accept it. This is a tricky question.

PMP Questions and Answers #10

A schedule performance index, SPI, of 0.75 means:

A-) Project is over budget.

B-) Project is ahead of schedule.

C-) Project is progressing at 75% of the rate originally planned

D-) Project is progressing at 25% of the rate originally planned

The answer is C, the project is progressing at 75% of the rate originally planned. A is irrelevant because SPI is a schedule performance index. We cannot derive any conclusion about the budget performance of the project with this index. B is not correct because SPI is less than one, therefore, the project is behind schedule. And D, says that you have completed 25% of the work that you have originally planned, so it’s not correct. The correct answer here is C, because SPI 0.75 means, you have completed 75% of your work that you have originally planned.

A-) Quality Audits

B-) Risk Quantification Reports

C-) Regression Analysis

D-) Monte Carlo Analysis

The answer is A. quality audits. If you read the second sentence again, it says that you are concerned about the accuracy of progress reports from the project.

Therefore, here the best answer is A, Quality Audits.

PMP Questions and Answers #12

A-) Part of an ISO 9000 investigation

B-) To check if the customer is following its quality process

C-) To identify inefficient and ineffective policies

D-) To check the accuracy of costs submitted by the team

How would you explain it to your team if you were in this case? The best answer is C, to identify inefficient and ineffective policies. B and D are irrelevant options because a quality audit is done in order to check whether you are meeting the quality standards, whether you are following the quality procedures of your company. Therefore, it’s not related whether the customer is following its quality processes. Or it is not related to the accuracy of the costs submitted by the team.
