Similiarity IT/Construction Project Management

Postby nazrulq Tue Jul 04, 2017 10:16 pm

You are a project manager in an IT company. You have recently received an offer as a project manager in a construction company offering a 20% salary increase. You have excellent technical knowledge in the IT field, but do not have much exposure to the construction industry. In this context,

1 You should attend training classes related to the construction industry to get more technical expertise in the field.
2 You should not take up the assignment, because you will lose out on the experience and skills gained in the IT field.
3 You should take up the assignment, because project management skills required in the construction company are similar to those required in the IT field.
4 You should try to get more information about project management in the construction industry and then make an informed decision about whether to take up the new opportunity.

Correct Answer: 3

I think the answer should be 4

Of course industry knowledge required for construction project is different, however the option says project management skills, as per PMI , project management processes are industry agnostic, tailoring of the process can be industry specific

Project Management Skils are different than, Program, Portfolio, and operational management skill. (Noting discussed in PMBOK, Rita and Andy Crowe elaboratelyVery difficult to catch on what question is giving emphasis!!

That is why I want to go with option 4
