PMP® Challenge Question – 10/1

My apologies for a late post — I had a pretty quick trip visiting 3 clients on the East coast.

On September 15, I posed an easy question: What project document is created by decomposing the project scope into smaller, more manageable deliverables? This is, of course, a WBS –Work Breakdown Structure!

Now here’s a more difficult question for 10/15, based not only on the exam, but real life experience:

You are in the middle of rolling out a Unix development and production platform to 8 US and 8 overseas locations, primarily Australia and Europe. This is a major initiative to move development and clients off proprietary mainframes and on to more flexible, vendor supported platforms. The equipment is shipped to the US, repackaged, and forwarded to locations to coincide with the arrival of an installation and training team. Halfway through, the manufacturer of the platform announces a major chip upgrade which would provide key functionality not available at the time of the start of the rollout. What is your next step?

Come back on 10/15 for the anwer, as well as the follow up on what happened next ….
