PM Question of the Week - week 3 2015

Dear colleague, welcome to the "PM question of the week" newsletter # 3 2015.

This week we challenge you with the following situational PMP question.

You are in the early stages of the project and still carrying out planning. You are being pressured by a senior manager of the company who is clearly trying to impose his own views regarding important aspects of the plan. You are considering whether his involvement in the project planning is legitimate or not. Which of the following options best describes what you are doing?
a. Considering ethical issues.
b. Identifying risks.
c. Analyzing stakeholders.
d. Considering organizational process assets.

Answer to question and explanation

The correct answer is c. Analyzing stakeholders.

Explanation: you are evaluating the source of the influence power of the stakeholder. Answers d. Considering organizational process assets and b. Identifying risks. are good guess either but less specific to the case in point. Answer a. Considering ethical issues. is not correct, as the described situation involves the company structure and policies rather than ethical issues.
