PM Question of the Week - week 12 2015
Dear colleague, welcome to the "PM question of the week" newsletter for week 12 2015.
This week we test your general understanding of the project management framework.
Answer to question and explanation
The correct answer is a. Failure to identify key stakeholders.
Explanation: stakeholders need to be identified early in the project; in fact identify stakeholders is an initiating project management process. Let's examine the other options:
b. Unclear roles and responsibilities. this issue relates more to the project team management, and to the planning phase.
c. Misalignment between project objectives and organizational strategy. this is another typical issue that affects scope management and the planning phase.
d. Wrong assumptions over estimates. again a typical planning phase issue: estimates are clearly not part of the initiating phase.
