Scardo Mock Exam 7, Q #1

Postby VCAB Fri Apr 21, 2017 6:36 pm

You company has just completed an unexpected round of layoffs. Morale is low, and resources are tighter than ever. Your project is now behind schedule because of the loss of resources. Overtime work will be required of everyone for the next several weeks in order to close the gap. One of the critical resources on your project has an upcoming vacation, which was approved and scheduled months ago. However, without this resource you will be unable to get back on schedule. What do you do?
A: Notify the project stakeholders of your situation immediately
B: Cancel all vacations
C: Find another resource
D: Compress the schedule further
The book says A, but I think C

Could anyone explain why A is the right answer

finding another resources is probably a good choice if the issue was only with one single resource on vacation , however the question mentions situation which is more critical due to layoffs, besides its not easy to find a replacement resource, so best option is to communicate with stakeholders first
