PMI PBA: Facilitate the Go/No-Go Decision

Postby seema.sonkiya Sat Mar 07, 2015 2:40 pm

David is a business analyst in a project and involved in evaluation of the developed solution. David is done with the comparison of expected and actual values, and identified causes of discrepancies. To address the discrepancies, David is also done with requirement analysis and impact analysis along with relevant stakeholders. Now in order to proceed further to facilitate go/no-go decision, which one of following activity David is NOT expected to do?

A. Organise in-person meeting
B. Conduct Survey for semi-qualitative assessment
C. Define time box agenda
D. Summarise evaluation results and develop an agreed upon decision model

which one is the correct answer?

My answer is B
-summarize the evaluation results in a meaningful way,It help decision makers grasp the impact and render a decision.
-the use of a time-boxed agenda that is shared with all of the stakeholders prior to the meeting is recommended for go/no-go decision meetings
-go/no-go decisions should be made during an in-person meeting to allow all stakeholders to
hear the rationale for the decisions from their counterparts.
-Conduct surveys only when you have the time and resources to carefully plan and design the
sample questions and determine how you will evaluate the results.It not relative" facilitate go/no-go decision" .

Seema, I agree with you that the correct answer is B.
The reason is more simple: The practice guide (6.6.1) says: "surveys can be used to gather information and elicit requirements from a very large and/or geographically dispersed population. ... surveys are useful as an evaluation technique to obtain feedback from stakeholders in general, and, more specifically, from users of the solution. Instead, the question asks to agree a go/no go decision with relevant stakeholders."

Yes, Conduct Survey for semi-qualitative assessment is a distractor here as all necessary assessments have already been performed --> if things are ready to facilitate the Go/No-Go Decision :-)
