PMP® Challenge Question – 10/15

From 9/15: What’s the difference between leadership and management?

The primary difference is that a manager is typically a person in authority while a leader is a person who accomplishes goals through influence. For a more detailed explanation, see The Practice of Leadership blog.

Now here’s a question for 11/1:

A contingency reserve is an amount of money set aside in the project budget based on the impact, probability, and expected monetary value of a risk event. A project has risks A and B. A has 25% probability of occurring and a negative impact of -$100,000while B has 45% probability of occurring and a negative impact of -$90,000. What is the expected monetary value (Ex$V) for the risk requiring the largest contingency?
