Communication managment

Postby shaibajit Mon Nov 27, 2017 5:41 pm

A Project Manager in an information technology project is discussing a complex algorithm with a new
team member. After a long and thorough verbal discussion, the Project Manager asks if the team member
understood the algorithm and can put it in the document. The team member implies that he has
understood. However, when the Project Manager goes through the document, he realizes that the member
didn't understand what was said thus resulting in an inefficient use of time and effort. Who is responsible
for this loss of time, and how could it have been avoided?

A Project Manager; he shouldn't have given the complex assignment to a new team member
B Team Member; since he implied he understood the discussion and didn't ask his doubts immediately
C Project Manager; he should have also helped the team member in preparing and reviewing the document
D Project Manager; since it is his responsibility to ensure his message is clear and concise and confirm that the team member truly understands the message

PMP exam usually does not ask any question which will blame an individual , I do not see any value in practicing such type of questions
