Question #1 political unrest in the vendor's location

Postby balaji1987 Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:05 am

You are a Project Manager of a software development project. You have outsourced a component of your product to a third-party vendor, and it is due to be delivered next week. You find out that the delivery of the component may be delayed due to political unrest in the vendor's location. What is the BEST you can do in this situation?


Report to your senior Manager about probable delay, along with details on the current political situation at vendor's place
Communicate to the vendor that any possible delay would attract a fine and affect future payments
Revisit your project schedule and look at alternatives to reduce the impact of the delay
Since there is no official communication from the vendor, you need to use the "wait and watch" policy
