    WHY IS A PROJECT MANAGEMENT IMPORTANT WHEN THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE INVOLVED?

    Correct Answer
    The objectives and the schedule of work can be agreed without formal meetings.
    Explanation
    Formal meetings are an important aspect of project management as they provide a platform for all the stakeholders to come together, discuss and agree upon the objectives and schedule of work. These meetings ensure that everyone is on the same page and have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Without formal meetings, it would be difficult to coordinate and align the efforts of multiple individuals involved in a project, leading to confusion, miscommunication, and ultimately, a lack of efficiency and productivity.

    C. Costs of running are lower
    Explanation
    Using a model in simulations offers several advantages, such as being a safer way of teaching and not requiring specialized training. However, the statement that costs of running are lower is not an advantage of using a model in simulations. This suggests that using a model may actually incur higher costs compared to other methods of simulation.
