PK0-004 : CompTIA Project+ : Part 10

  1. A project manager has identified a minor skills gap in the operational team that will end up supporting the project solution.

    Which of the following is the BEST risk mitigation strategy that the project manager should use?

    • Organize adequate training and have one of the operational staff as part of the project team.
    • Raise a risk in the risk register, identify the likelihood and the consequence of the risk occurring.
    • Have the project adequately document the solution and ensure a transition is in place.
    • Escalate this as an issue to the project control board and ensure that there is adequate discussion.
  2. The project manager has had a large number of change requests approved by the project steering committee, but has been given no extra time to deliver the project.

    Which of the following schedule compression techniques should be used by the project manager?

    • Rescheduling
    • Crashing
    • Rebaselining
    • Control scope
  3. The project manager is reviewing the earned value of work completed compared to the planned value and is representing it in a dollar figure.

    This type of analysis is an example of which of the following?

    • Cost performance index
    • Risk mitigation
    • Schedule variance
    • Cost variance
  4. A project manager is trying to ensure the quality of the design and reduce the number of potential defects. The project manager would like to use the fishbone diagram to perform this analysis.

    This type of modeling relies on:

    • Prioritizing the specific event.
    • Variance in the process over time.
    • Causes of a specific event.
    • Determining the number of events.
  5. The design activity of a project has the following cost attributes:

    PV = 100,000
    EV = 20,000
    AC = 90,000

    Based on this scenario, calculate the schedule variance.

    • -80,000
    • -70,000
    • 10,000
    • 120,000
  6. Ann, one of the affected stakeholders, feels that the project team has not been giving periodic stakeholder updates and that her input has not been taken into account.

    Which of the following should the project manager do to ensure stakeholder expectations are met?

    • Ensure that Ann is involved during the testing phase of the project so she can call out functional gaps.
    • Organize a walkthrough of the solution and ensure face-to-face updates occur every two weeks.
    • Escalate the issue to the project steering committee that Ann is criticizing the project quality.
    • Organize a requirements workshop to capture any gaps.
  7. A post implementation review is being performed as a part of project closure. Which of the following are applicable areas that the review should cover? (Choose two.)

    • Lessons learned during the project.
    • Produce operational support documentation.
    • Gathering and centralizing project documentation.
    • Organizing the communication of project closure.
    • Identify the key project achievements.
    • Provide a recap of the overall solution.
  8. Which of the following techniques modifies the schedule based upon resource constraints?

    • Critical Chain Method
    • Critical Chain Method
    • Arrow Diagramming Method
    • Precedence Diagramming Method
  9. Resources for a project report to a project manager and a functional manager.

    The organizational structure is:

    • Matrix
    • Ad hoc
    • Functional
    • Projectized
  10. The final project report should contain which of the following?

    • Minutes of all the project meetings
    • Project design documentation
    • Detailed breakdown of the schedule
    • Summary of the project cost
  11. Task B is not planned to start until Task A is completed. Task A is delayed and will not be completed on time. Starting Task B prior to Task A completing is an example of:

    • Managing change
    • Fast tracking
    • Rolling wave planning
    • Crashing
  12. The project team is not comfortable moving an expensive material.

    A third party is hired to move the material. This is an example of risk:

    • Transference
    • Sharing
    • Avoidance
    • Acceptance
  13. The project’s network map has a loop with multiple project outcomes.

    This is the result of which of the following scheduling tools?

    • Establishing project schedule baselines
    • Critical Path Analysis
    • Critical Chain Method
    • Graphical evaluation and review technique
  14. Which of the following tools would a project manager use to determine the root cause of an issue?

    • Pareto Chart
    • Ishikawa Diagram
    • Histogram
    • Monte Carlo Analysis
  15. Which of the following activity sequencing techniques uses nodes to symbolize activities and arrows to show how their dependencies are connected?

    • Critical Path Method
    • Arrow Diagramming Method
    • Critical Chain Method
    • Precedence Diagramming Method
  16. Which of the following activity sequencing techniques uses nodes to symbolize the dependencies of each activity?

    • Critical Path Method
    • Critical Chain Method
    • Arrow Diagramming Method
    • Gantt Chart Method
  17. A PM receives notification that an issue will impact a deliverable on the critical path. The issue is logged with a unique ID and assigned to a team member; however, the team member has not addressed it after a week. Which of the following would be the BEST approach to resolving the issue?

    • Assign a different team member to resolve the issue before the next status meeting.
    • Review the issue with the assigned team member to determine a due date.
    • Set a due date to resolve the issue and inform the assigned team member.
    • Report the team member to a functional manager for disciplinary action.
  18. Three IT companies have agreed to summarize their efforts as a common organization to generate new businesses in the IT cloud computing industry. Which of the following is the type of organizational change described?

    • Expansion
    • Rightsizing

  20. A sponsor requests that the project team shorten the completion of a project by two months to give the sales team more leverage in renegotiating the contract with the client. The budgeted time is 500 hours, and the projected earned value is $30,000.
