Project Management - Qp5 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The final phase of the project cycle: the Project Implementation and Evaluation phase, and by this stage, any amendments, adjustments and changes required to achieve a project's objectives should have been well managed and the end goal is in sight.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the final phase of the project cycle is not just the Project Implementation and Evaluation phase. There are usually additional phases such as project planning, design, and development that come before the implementation and evaluation phase. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that all amendments, adjustments, and changes should have been well managed by this stage, as there may still be ongoing modifications and improvements needed throughout the project.

    • B.

      Lack of effective supervision or leadership.

    • C.

      Pre-mature confidence in a project's momentum to reach completion on its own.

    • D.

      General disinterest or attention (perhaps due to boredom) with the remaining tasks.

    • E.

      Wage dispute

    • F.

      A relaxation of schedule discipline.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Poor monitoring.
    B. Lack of effective supervision or leadership.
    C. Pre-mature confidence in a project's momentum to reach completion on its own.
    D. General disinterest or attention (perhaps due to boredom) with the remaining tasks.
    F. A relaxation of schedule discipline.
    Explanation
    Failure to close a project properly and to the satisfaction of all involved can be attributed to poor monitoring, as it indicates a lack of oversight and control over the project's progress. Lack of effective supervision or leadership can also contribute to this failure, as it suggests a lack of guidance and direction for the team. Pre-mature confidence in a project's momentum to reach completion on its own can lead to neglecting necessary tasks and ultimately failing to close the project successfully. General disinterest or attention, possibly due to boredom, with the remaining tasks can result in incomplete or unsatisfactory project closure. A relaxation of schedule discipline can cause delays and hinder the proper closure of the project.

    Strict closing procedures should be applied by the Project Management to ensure the conclusion of a successful project, namely:-   (Select Four)

    • A.

      A declaration of a project's imminent completion.

    • B.

      The reassignment of resources.

    • C.

      A relaxation of schedule discipline.

    • D.

      The completion of final and necessary documentation.

    • E.

      Consideration of project sustainability.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A declaration of a project's imminent completion.
    B. The reassignment of resources.
    D. The completion of final and necessary documentation.
    E. Consideration of project sustainability.
    Explanation
    Strict closing procedures are necessary to ensure the successful conclusion of a project. A declaration of a project's imminent completion is important to communicate that the project is coming to an end. The reassignment of resources is necessary to reallocate them to other projects or tasks once the current project is completed. The completion of final and necessary documentation is important for record-keeping and to ensure that all project deliverables are properly documented. Consideration of project sustainability is important to evaluate the long-term impact and viability of the project.

    The purpose of evaluating a project is not to find fault or blame but to learn from a project's experience and to improve on future performance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the purpose of evaluating a project is to gain insights and lessons from its experience, rather than focusing on finding fault or blame. Evaluation helps in identifying areas of improvement and understanding what worked well and what didn't, allowing for better future performance. It encourages a positive and constructive approach towards learning and growth.

    The evaluation of a project should not only focus on its success but also on identifying and analyzing the shortcomings that occurred during the project cycle. This helps in learning from mistakes and improving future projects. By examining the shortcomings, project managers can identify areas where improvements are needed, whether it be in budget costs, management skills, or administrative duties. This comprehensive evaluation ensures that lessons are learned and applied to future projects, leading to better outcomes.

These three approaches provide a comprehensive evaluation of different aspects of the project's performance and impact.
