PM Question of the Week - week 43 2014

Dear colleague, welcome to our "PM question of the week" newsletter for week 43 2014

This week PMP question:

Which of the following is NOT a way to support strategic objectives?
a. Align strategic objectives with the organizational scope.
b. Integrate a subproject into a program.
c. Exclude a project from a portfolio.
d. Run operations.

Answer to question and explanation

The correct answer is b. Integrate a subproject into a program.

Explanation: although the term subproject is part of the PMBoK glossary, it is never used in relation to portfolio management, that is clearly the topic of the question. You may also note that answer d. Run operations is a distractor: operations do support strategic objectives of an organization, even though they differ from projects because of their ongoing, not temporary, nature.
