    A. Predictive Life Cycle
    Explanation
    The predictive life cycle includes determining the project scope, time, and cost as early as possible in the project life cycle. This means that the project requirements and deliverables are defined upfront, allowing for a more structured and planned approach to project management. This approach is suitable when the project scope is well-defined and stable, and there is little expectation of changes or uncertainties. By determining these factors early on, the project team can have a clear understanding of the project's objectives and plan accordingly.

    A part-time team consists of members who divide their working hours among multiple projects.

This arrangement allows for flexibility and the ability to handle multiple responsibilities at once.

They typically have a vested interest in the project's outcome and provide financial backing, guidance, and advocacy. The sponsor plays a crucial role in ensuring that the project is adequately resourced, stays on track, and achieves its objectives.

They are the individuals who have been assigned specific roles and responsibilities within the project and are accountable for completing their assigned tasks.

They work collaboratively to ensure that the project objectives are met and the deliverables are produced according to the defined requirements and timelines.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An operation is an ongoing process that continues unless there is a specific instruction to change or stop it. On the other hand, a project has a defined start and end date, and once the project is completed, it comes to an end. Therefore, the statement that a project comes to an end while an operation continues unless directed to change is true.

    Correct Answer
    B. Provide developers and code experts for the development of desired systems
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Provide developers and code experts for the development of desired systems." This option does not align with the typical functions of a Project Management Office (PMO). The PMO is primarily responsible for providing policies, methodologies, tools, and templates for managing projects within the organization, supporting and training others on project management, and providing project managers for ongoing projects. The development of systems is typically handled by development teams or IT departments, not the PMO.

      Projectized organization

    • D.

      Weak matrix

    Correct Answer
    A. Strong matrix
    Explanation
    In a strong matrix organization, the project manager has almost total authority. This means that the project manager has the power to make decisions, allocate resources, and control the project without much interference from functional managers. The project manager has the highest level of authority and is responsible for the success of the project. The strong matrix structure is characterized by a high level of integration between the project and functional teams, with the project manager having significant control over both.
