Calculate communication channel

Postby sunildubai15 Sun Jan 03, 2016 7:06 am

You are managing a project with project teams in different geographical locations. There are approximately 25 team members in 3 different locations each being lead by a team lead. Additionally, there are 3 members from a supporting group that are working part- time on the project. How many communication channels are possible in your project?

n = 25 (team member) + 3 (team lead) + 3 (support member) + 1 (PM) =32

in the question, if they specially mention something like team members, then you have to add 1 more for PM.

In some questions, they may tell there are 15 stakeholders, then you no need to add PM separately.

AGain, it depends on the question just read carefully, you can easily identify the difference.
