PM Question of the Week - week 46 2014
Dear colleague, welcome to our "PM question of the week" newsletter for week 46 2014.
This week we propose you a PMP question regarding the different project life cycle models that are described in the PMBoK:
Answer to question and explanation
The correct answer is d. Iterative.
Explanation: the iterative life cycle provides advantages when the project scope is complex and can be subdivided into portions that can be delivered separately and still provide value to the customer. Fully plan driven and predictive project life cycles are synonyms: these approaches will increase risks in complex scenarios. On the other hand adaptive methods, such as Agile, require a continuous engagement of the stakeholders, that is often impractical in large organizations.
