You have been assigned to a project in which the objectives are to expand three miles of the north-south highway through your city by two lanes in each direction. You are in charge of the demolition phase of this project, and you report to the project manager in charge of this project. You have been hired on contract and will be released at the completion of the demolition phase. What type of organizational structure does this represent?

1.

Functional organization
2.

Weak matrix organization
3.

Projectized organization
4.

Balanced matrix organization
16.


C. Projectized organizations are focused on the project itself. One issue with this type of structure is determining what to do with project team members when they are not actively involved on the project. One alternative is to release them when they are no longer needed.
17.

You have been assigned to a project in which the objectives are to expand three miles of the north-south highway through your city by two lanes in each direction. You are interested in implementing a new project process called Design-Build in order to speed up the project schedule. The idea is that the construction team will work on the first mile of the highway reconstruction at the same time the design team is coming up with plans for the third mile of the reconstruction rather than completing all design before any construction begins. This is an example of:

1.

Managing the projects as a program
2.

Fast tracking
3.

Progressive elaboration
4.

Collocation
18.


B. Fast tracking is starting a new phase before the phase you’re working on is completed. This compresses the project schedule, and as a result, the project is completed sooner.
19.


During which project management process are risk and stakeholder’s ability to influence project outcomes the highest at the beginning of the process?

1.

Planning
2.

Executing
3.

Initiation
4.

C. The Initiation process is where stakeholders have the greatest ability to influence outcomes of the project. Risk is highest during this stage because of the high degree of unknown factors.
20.

3.
