Team member performance issue

Postby Housam Bassal Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:20 pm

A team member in your project is constantly providing incomplete deliverables and not performing well. What should you do first?
A. Discuss the issue with the team member in private
B. Discuss the issue with the team member in presence of the project sponsor
C. Discuss the issue with the team member in the presence of other team members
D. Discuss the issue with the team member in presence of the company's HR manager

A - Discuss the issue with the team member in private. Conflicts should be first addressed in private, using a direct and collaborative approach. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 283] [Project Human Resource Management]

I think the correct answer is D, as this behavior has been constantly repeated, that's mean the PM already has private informal discussion with the team member, and now needs to step up and take some formal disciplinary action. what do you think? :?

Do not over imagine while attempt in questions for PMP exam :), there is no indication that PM has had any private talks with the team member before.
