During project executing, you realize the subcontractors are working with incomplete and different project scope statements. As the project manager, what should you do first?
Stop work until the scope issue is resolved.
Document the inconsistencies to the sponsor, calculating the cost of nonconformance.
Review the scope with the stakeholders.
Check the work completed against the correct project scope statement.
The project life cycle differs from the project management process in that the project management process:
Can spawn many projects
Is the same for every project
Is different for each industry
Does not incorporate a methodology
You are managing an email security and archiving project with a tight timeline. A seller has recently begun to cause your schedule to slip. They have delivered a couple of small items late, and have now failed to make delivery on a major item for your project. What is likely to be the least effective thing to do?
Work with the seller to correct the problem.
Hire another seller to work side by side with the original seller.
Negotiate an extension of time.
Terminate the contract for default.
A project is 50 percent complete when management decides they need the product of the project completed in time to introduce it at a trade show, which will be held in three months. Your project was originally allocated five more months to complete. Which of the following should be done first in response to this new schedule constraint?
Revisit all activities that have not yet started.
Level resources on the remaining activities to determine resource variances.
Rebaseline the project management plan to determine impacts on schedule, cost, and scope.
Use a simulation technique such as Monte Carlo analysis, to calculate a distribution of probable results for the total project.
A control chart indicates the last 12 weights produced were outside the upper control limit. What should the project manager do?
Work to better meet ISO 9000 standards.
Plan to rework the 12 weights.
Look for the nonrandom causes for the variations.
