Communication Channel

Postby nagarwal Tue Sep 02, 2014 11:24 am

You are a project manager in a telecom project and 10 engineer report to you. Two new members start reporting to you. How many communication channels will be added by including these two new members.


Calulating the no. of channels is no problem here. Figuring out when to include the project manager in the communication channel is the real worry. Is there any logic to get these kind of questions right. Many a times I assume that we need to additionally count the project manager and get the answer right and many a times it turns out to be incorrect. Any suggestions here?

I think the description of the sentence matters most. In this particular question the PM needs to be considered while counting for the number of team members for communication channels.

you must add PM
ALL stakeholder =13 people
Old team (include PM)=11 people
(11*10)/2 = 55
(13*12)/2 = 78

78-55 = 23

I am not sure why this question is confusing in sense to add PM or not.

Question explicitly mentions 10 engineers report to you :) which suggests PM is not counted.
