Project Resource Management q33

Postby et_ab Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:34 am

You have taken over the project from another project manager one week back. There is one team member who is working on your project and doesn’t have all the required skills to perform his work. As you have not selected him for the project, who is responsible for the training of the resource?

Project manager (you)

PMO (Project Management Office)

Sponsor

Functional manager

The ans given is a-Project manager . i read reffered section on PMBOK page 342 which states that training cost will be from Project budget .

The question here is asking for responsibility for training of resource & not about the cost ? so that responsibility lies with functional manager & not the Project manager .

When answering PMP questions, keep it simple and do not overimagine, the question is not asking for cost, its asking for competence upgrade of team member and that has to be PM
