  1. A difference between operations and projects is that operations end when their objectives have been reached, whereas projects do not.

 

ANS:  F

Projects are different from operations in that they end when their objectives have been reached or the project has been terminated.

  1. Projects should be developed in increments.

 

ANS:  T

A project is developed using progressive elaboration. Projects are often defined broadly when they begin, and as time passes, the specific details of the project become clearer. Therefore, projects should be developed in increments.

  1. Resources in a project should be used effectively because they are limited.

 

ANS:  T

A project requires resources, often from various areas. Resources, however, are limited and must be used effectively to meet project and other corporate goals.

  1. A project manager’s primary role is to provide the funding for a project.

 

ANS:  F

A project sponsor usually provides the direction and funding for a project.

  1. One of the main reasons why project management is challenging is because of the factor of uncertainty.

 

ANS:  T

A project involves uncertainty. Every project is unique and thus it is sometimes difficult to define its objectives clearly, estimate how long it will take to complete, or determine how much it will cost. This uncertainty is one of the main reasons project management is so challenging.

  1. Questions about how a team will track schedule performance is related to a project’s scope.

 

ANS:  F

Project scope deals with questions such as, “What work will be done as part of the project?”, “What unique product, service, or result does the customer or sponsor expect from the project?”, or “How will the scope be verified?”

  1. In order to be realistic, a project manager should always set discrete goals instead of a range of objectives.

 

ANS:  F

Projects involve uncertainty and limited resources. Thus they rarely finish according to their original scope, time, and cost goals. Instead of discrete target goals, it is often more realistic to set a range of goals.

  1. Managing the triple constraint primarily involves making trade-offs between resources and quality.

 

ANS:  F

Managing the triple constraint involves making trade-offs between scope, time, and cost goals for a project. Experienced project managers know that one must decide which aspect of the triple constraint is most important.

  1. The only responsibility of a project manager is to meet the specific scope, time, and cost goals of a project.
