PM Question of the Week - week 13 2015

Dear colleague, welcome to the "PM question of the week" newsletter for week 13 2015.

In this issue of our weekly newsletter we propose you a situational PMP question.

You have just signed a contract with the customer organization. You will now proceed to acquire the project team according to the human resource management plan. Which of the following options best describes what you have just done?
a. Define project requirements.
b. Develop project charter.
c. Manage project team.
d. Conduct procurement.

Answer to question and explanation

The correct answer is b. Develop project charter.

Explanation: the project charter is the document that formally authorizes the project. Sometimes this is represented by a contract with the customer. The other options are clearly wrong, and among them the worst one is probably d. Conduct procurement.: if you chose this option you probably need to clarify the difference between customer and seller organizations.
