Executive Management Members

Question 1

  • The project team is developing an app for iOs, Android, and Windows phones. The development team lead identifies a risk with the Windows phones. She says that the team has little experience with the Windows mobile operating system; additionally Windows is not capable of performing many of the required functions without using commercial plugins and APIs. As Windows phones occupy just a tiny portion of the world market (0.7%), and are being deprecated by Microsoft, you recommend to the client that “Windows” compatibility be removed from the project. The client agrees. Which risk treatment method is this? Explain your answer.
  • Which risk treatment method should be used when a section of the project is too difficult for the company to perform? Explain your answer.
  • You are managing a project which uses subroutines and libraries from a number of different sources. You are concerned that the project might accidentally contravene the law. So you ask the HR department to employ someone with specialist knowledge in the area. Is this an example of “Transference”? Explain your answer.
  • What is the difference between “Avoidance” and “Acceptance”?
