PMP 21 - Quiz 02

Tue Apr 06, 2021 3:54 am

Q, One of the stakeholder is explaining you the requirement and after that he wants you to share an estimate for implementing the same. What should you do in this situation?

a)Ask stakeholder not to explain the requirement to you but to team
b)Give an estimate of requirement since based on your expertise
c)Explain the requirements to team and ask for estimates from them
d)Organize meeting between team and stakeholder for better understanding of requirement

i had answered option c but the correct answer is d.

Query -
if the requirement is clear the team members can share the estimate. Why need to meet stakeholder if requirement is clear?
my understanding is - Only if the requirement is not clear then there is a need to organize meeting between team and stakeholders for better understanding o requirements.

Thanks

The information provided is limited, if we take elimination of available choices
a)Ask stakeholder not to explain the requirement to you but to team - This will be rude as well its good if PM first understands the requirement and also evaluates requirement if it is inline with Projects business case
b)Give an estimate of requirement since based on your expertise This can be an option if stakeholder has urgency and PM tells stakeholder that requirements will be refined once it is discussed with team,
c)Explain the requirements to team and ask for estimates from them, there can be loss of messaging when it comes from PM as compared to coming it directly from stakeholders, also if there are queries from team, PM may not be able to clarify them as good as stakeholder can
d)Organize meeting between team and stakeholder for better understanding of requirement
This is the best option as any bottom up estimate is good and team will also be committed to the estimation , PM can ask team not to provide estimate directly to stakeholder and there could be need to add buffer and do some impact analysis on other areas of schedule, resource need etc
