    Which of the following is NOT a reason why data provides first mover advantages?

    • A.

      Data is mutable

    • B.

      Data is scalable

    • C.

      Data is reinforceable

    • D.

      Data is defensible

    Correct Answer
    A. Data is mutable
    Explanation
    Data being mutable means that it can be easily changed or modified. This does not provide a first mover advantage because other competitors can also access and modify the data, making it less valuable as a unique advantage. On the other hand, data being scalable, reinforceable, and defensible can provide first mover advantages. Scalable data can be easily expanded to handle larger amounts of information, reinforceable data can be used to strengthen a company's position in the market, and defensible data can create barriers for competitors to enter the market.

    Explanation
    The business model canvas is a strategic management tool used to visualize and analyze a business model. It helps identify and define various aspects of a business, such as customer segments, value proposition, revenue streams, and cost structure. However, it does not specifically focus on identifying the sequence of primary and support activities within the organization used to generate value for the customer and margin to the organization. This information may be better addressed by other tools or frameworks, such as process mapping or value chain analysis.

The SDLC consists of several phases, including analyzing the existing situation, identifying the goals of the organization, and identifying the specific requirements of the system. However, positioning the organization to generate value is not a specific phase within the SDLC.

    Correct Answer
    B. Airlines paying Rolls-Royce a fee for servicing airline engines
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Airlines paying Rolls-Royce a fee for servicing airline engines" because this transaction is a business-to-business relationship, not a customer relationship. The airlines are the customers of Rolls-Royce in this scenario, but they are not maintaining a direct relationship with their own customers.

    • B.

      Customer voice

    • C.

      Digitization

      Digital natives

    Correct Answer
    A. Value chain

    The three trends that drive the importance of moving towards digital business models are customer voice, digitization, and digital natives. Value chain is not one of these trends. Value chain refers to the series of activities that a company performs in order to deliver a valuable product or service to the market. While it is important for businesses to optimize their value chain, it is not specifically a trend that is driving the importance of digital business models.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Which of the following is NOT a potential revenue stream for the organization's value proposition?

    • A.

      Reduction of risk and uncertainty

    • B.

      Subscription fees

    • C.

      Licensing

    • D.

      Asset sale

    • E.

      Advertising

    Correct Answer
    A. Reduction of risk and uncertainty
    Explanation
    Reduction of risk and uncertainty is not a potential revenue stream for the organization's value proposition because it is not a direct source of income. While it may contribute to the overall value proposition by providing benefits such as increased customer trust and loyalty, it does not generate revenue on its own. In contrast, subscription fees, licensing, asset sale, and advertising are all potential revenue streams as they involve direct monetary transactions.

    Correct Answer
    C. A signoff by a project sponsor on the phase of the project
    Explanation
    A signoff by a project sponsor on the phase of the project is not an example of a deliverable because it is a formal approval or confirmation of the completion of a project phase, rather than a tangible or intangible output that is produced and delivered to the stakeholders. Deliverables are typically tangible or intangible items, such as prototypes, presentations, or reports, that are created and provided to the stakeholders as a result of the project's activities.

    Which of the following is not a project?

    • A.

      Design and Development of the new iPhone X

    • B.

      Delivering mail

    • C.

      Restoration of power after Hurricane Irma

    • D.

      Planning a vacation

    Correct Answer
    B. Delivering mail
    Explanation
    Delivering mail is not considered a project because it is a routine task that is typically performed on a regular basis. Projects, on the other hand, are temporary endeavors that have a specific goal, a defined beginning and end, and require a unique set of resources and activities to achieve the desired outcome. Design and development of the new iPhone X, restoration of power after Hurricane Irma, and planning a vacation all meet the criteria of being projects as they involve specific objectives, limited duration, and require coordination and planning.

    • E.

      Date-based schedule that identifies a critical path through the project

    Correct Answer
    C. Description of tasks, numbered and arranged in layers of detail
    Explanation
    A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a description of tasks, numbered and arranged in layers of detail. It is a hierarchical decomposition of the project deliverables into smaller, more manageable components. The WBS breaks down the project into smaller work packages, making it easier to plan, schedule, and estimate resources for each task. The numbering system allows for easy identification and organization of the tasks. The layers of detail provide a clear and structured overview of the project scope and the work required to complete it.

During this stage, team members start to establish common goals and norms, resolve conflicts, and work together more effectively. They develop a sense of trust and camaraderie, leading to increased collaboration and a shared identity as a cohesive team. This stage is crucial for building strong relationships and setting the foundation for high performance in the performing stage.

    Which of the following is important to keep in mind when developing a Gantt chart

    • A.

      Dependencies and milestones

    • B.

      MOV and client satisfaction

    • C.

      The PMI

    • D.

      The triple constraint

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Dependencies and milestones
    Explanation
    When developing a Gantt chart, it is important to consider the dependencies and milestones. Dependencies refer to the relationships between different tasks, indicating which tasks need to be completed before others can start. Milestones are significant points in the project that mark the completion of major deliverables or key events. Including these in the Gantt chart helps in visualizing the sequence and interdependencies of tasks, ensuring a smooth flow of work and effective project management. The other options, such as MOV and client satisfaction, PMI, and the triple constraint, are not directly related to the development of a Gantt chart.

    Which of the following maintains a directory of names to translate IP addresses?

    • A.

      DNS

    • B.

      Router

    • C.

      VPN

    • D.

      Switch

    • E.

      TCP

    Correct Answer
    A. DNS
    Explanation
    DNS (Domain Name System) maintains a directory of names to translate IP addresses. It is responsible for mapping domain names to their corresponding IP addresses, allowing users to access websites by typing in a domain name instead of the numerical IP address. DNS servers store this information and provide it to other devices on the network when requested. This enables efficient and user-friendly communication on the internet by converting human-readable domain names into machine-readable IP addresses.

    The "Wicked Problem Solvers" article suggests several practices for solving complex problems, such as psychological safety, execution-as-learning, adaptable vision, and knowledge sharing. However, return on investment is not mentioned as a suggested practice in the article. This implies that the article does not emphasize measuring success or progress solely based on financial returns, but rather focuses on collaborative and adaptive approaches to problem-solving.

    The given correct answer states that "Classes need to have at least 1 student." This means that every class must have at least one student enrolled in it. This is likely based on the assumption that classes are designed for teaching and learning, and therefore require the presence of students to fulfill their purpose. Without any students, a class would be considered empty or inactive.

    Explanation
    The given answer states that a building can have no rooms associated with it. However, based on the information provided in the question, it is stated that "A Room belongs to a minimum of one building." This means that every room must be associated with at least one building.

    Correct Answer
    A. In the old way of maintaining customer relationships, the company reaches out to peers of the consumers
    Explanation
    In the old way of maintaining customer relationships, the company does not reach out to peers of the consumers. This means that in the traditional approach, the company does not actively seek input or feedback from the customers' peers or involve them in the customer relationship management process. Instead, the company focuses on shaping the product and message, whereas in the new way of maintaining customer relationships, the company emphasizes engaging experiences and involves the consumer/user in the creation of the product or service.

    Which of the following is not an element of the ER model?

    • A.

      Entities

    • B.

      Primary keys

    • C.

      Attributes

    • D.

      Relationships

    • E.

      Pools

    Correct Answer
    E. Pools
    Explanation
    The ER model is a conceptual data model used to represent the structure of a database. It includes entities, which are the objects or concepts being represented, primary keys, which uniquely identify each entity, attributes, which describe the properties of the entities, and relationships, which define the associations between entities. Pools, on the other hand, are not elements of the ER model. Pools are typically used in business process modeling to represent a group of related activities or participants.

    Which of the following is not a characteristic of big data?

    • A.

      Velocity

    • B.

      Volume

    • C.

      Variety

    • D.

      Vicinity

    Correct Answer
    D. Vicinity
    Explanation
    The term "vicinity" does not relate to the characteristics of big data. Big data is commonly defined by its three V's - velocity, volume, and variety. Velocity refers to the speed at which data is generated and processed, volume refers to the vast amount of data being collected, and variety refers to the diverse types of data being analyzed. Vicinity, on the other hand, refers to the proximity or nearness of something, which is not a characteristic of big data.

    The notation used in E-R diagrams for relationships between 2 entities is:

    • A.

      Interconnected notation

    • B.

      Crow's foot notation

    • C.

      Flow notation

    • D.

      Business process modeling notation

    Correct Answer
    B. Crow's foot notation
    Explanation
    Crow's foot notation is used in E-R diagrams to represent relationships between two entities. In this notation, a crow's foot symbol is used to depict the "many" side of a relationship, while a straight line is used to represent the "one" side. This notation is widely used and easily understandable, making it a popular choice for visualizing entity relationships.

    Which of the following is NOT true of a silo organization?

    • A.

      Each silo has an information system that is optimized for the function performed by that function.

    • B.

      Workers complete their tasks in their functional silos

    • C.

      The structure of a silo’ed organization is incredibly effective for communication and collaboration between functions.

    Correct Answer
    C. The structure of a silo’ed organization is incredibly effective for communication and collaboration between functions.
    Explanation
    The structure of a silo’ed organization is not effective for communication and collaboration between functions. Silo organizations are characterized by separate departments or divisions that operate independently and have limited interaction with each other. This lack of communication and collaboration between functions can lead to inefficiencies, duplication of efforts, and a lack of synergy in achieving organizational goals.

    Which of the following is NOT a consequence of poor-coordination of business processes?

    • A.

      Increased visibility across the processes within the organization

    • B.

      Increased inventory in the organization for contingencies

    • C.

      Increased cycle and lead times in the organization

    • D.

      None of the above are consequences of poor-coordination

    Correct Answer
    A. Increased visibility across the processes within the organization
    Explanation
    Poor coordination of business processes can lead to various negative consequences. One of these consequences is increased visibility across the processes within the organization. When there is poor coordination, it becomes difficult to manage and track the flow of information and activities between different departments or functions. This lack of visibility can result in confusion, delays, and inefficiencies. Therefore, increased visibility is not a consequence of poor coordination, but rather a desirable outcome that can be achieved through effective coordination and integration of business processes.

    Which of the following matches what an Exclusive decision gateway does?

    • A.

      Provides a decomposition of a task into smaller units

    • B.

      Indicates locations within a business process where the sequence flow can take only one of two or more alternative paths.

    • C.

      Provide a mechanism to synchronize parallel flow and to create parallel flow.

    • D.

      None of the above are what an exclusive decision gateway does.

    Correct Answer
    B. Indicates locations within a business process where the sequence flow can take only one of two or more alternative paths.
    Explanation
    An Exclusive decision gateway is used to indicate locations within a business process where the sequence flow can take only one of two or more alternative paths. It helps in making exclusive choices between different paths based on certain conditions or rules. This ensures that only one path is taken at a time, depending on the evaluation of the conditions or rules. It helps in controlling the flow of the process and making decisions based on specific criteria.

    Activities/Tasks and Events in a business process HAVE to be performed sequentially.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. Activities/Tasks and Events in a business process do not have to be performed sequentially. In some cases, they can be performed concurrently or in parallel, depending on the nature of the process and the resources available. Sequential execution is not always necessary or efficient, and businesses often use different strategies to optimize their processes and improve productivity.

    Which of the following is not a key business function (process).

    • A.

      Fulfillment

    • B.

      Data modeling

    • C.

      Production

    • D.

      Procurement

    Correct Answer
    B. Data modeling
    Explanation
    Data modeling is not a key business function because it is a process that involves creating a conceptual representation of data structures and relationships within a business or organization. While data modeling is important for organizing and understanding data, it is not directly involved in the core operations of a business such as fulfillment, production, or procurement. These functions are more directly related to the actual delivery of products or services to customers, the manufacturing or creation of goods, and the acquisition of resources needed for the business, respectively.

    Which of the following BPMN elements refer to things that happen instantaneously, often to kick off (start) a process?

    • A.

      Activity/task

    • B.

      Sequence flow

    • C.

      Gateway

    • D.

      Event

    • E.

      Flow chart

    Correct Answer
    D. Event
    Explanation
    Events in BPMN refer to things that happen instantaneously, often to kick off a process. They represent a specific point in time within a process and can be used to trigger or start a process, or to indicate the occurrence of something significant within the process. Events can be categorized as start events, intermediate events, or end events, depending on when they occur in relation to the process flow. In contrast, activities/tasks, sequence flows, gateways, and flow charts do not specifically represent instantaneous occurrences within a process.
