1. Ask senior management to deal with this.
2. Keep with yourself.

Which is the least risky phase of a project?

1. Planning
2. Closing
3. Execution
4. Control
 

 isnt it Closing, as the uncertainity reduces as the project progresses, as per pmbok page17.

why is it 3 and not 4?

Thanks again!

Workaround usually occurs when the risk is already occured and found in the M&C. However, here they said in Execution.. Can someone clarify please?

 It says Project Execution phase not Execution process group. M&C should touch all aspects of project and project phases.

 what are the right answers?

 Before you do take any further step , you need to get the change request submitted via written request.

 

I think we need to follow the below sequence:

 

1) written request

2) analyze the impact

3) submit to PICC

5) make changes to base line if needed.

you found an un known risk during execution - so you need to plan a risk response first - so the option is " find work around " but you didn't implement it yet - and then it should be re evaluate the RMP

during planning the un certainty of the project is compensated with planning - I guess planning is the right answer

Customer asked for change - you determined that it only effects budget ( i.e discussed impact of the change along with the team ) nest thing is follow ICC process -

please let me know if this helps

Thanks vikula, make senses.

D 1

E 2

F 3

 

Question C: Some folks have chosen Choice 1 - Follow the formal bid process, and show the senior management about why the favoured vendor is or is not the best choice.

I believe there is a procedure by which formal bidding process can be avoided legitimately for favoured vendors. This route should be taken. Choice 4 seems to be the closest, I feel.

 

Question F: Some folks have chosen Choice 3 - Explain the change procedure and ask to submit a request for change.

This means we explain the change procedure to the customer and ask them to submit a change request. I don't believe we do it this way. The customer has already requested the project manager. From this point on, the PM will evaluate impact on various areas and then the PM will submit a change request to the Change Control Board after discussing with the team. I submit that Choice 4 is the correct answer.

Regards.

 

the question F says the change has effect on budget only - how does one determine the change effect without discussing with the project management team ?

Exactly. That's why I am picking Choice 4 which involves discussing with the team.

Are you also for Choice 4?

 

Regards.

 

the correct answers as per publishing were,

1, 3, 1, 1, 1, 3
 

Thx
