Q.1 The “requirements complete” deadline for the project has arrived, but the requirements are
not complete. If you don’t start the next phase – “design”- now, then it’s possible that the entire
project will slip. What do you do?
(a) Hang tough and say that nobody goes anywhere until the requirements are completed and
5 points: Probably the cleanest and best thing to do – even if it does require you to be a bit
tough. (A bit? OK then, very tough.)
(b) Blaze ahead and begin the design, doing those components that are based on requirements
that do exist. It’s early in the project- you can always make up the ground later.
0 points: Make the ground up later? The hell you will.
(c) Blaze ahead and begin the design, modifying the schedule to include two milestones;
- Partial requirements complete;
- Full requirements complete
In the process, however, do not alter the end date.
0 points: See (b)
(d) Do as in (c) but move the end date to allow for the extra work that is going to be required.
5 points: My own preference would be for (a), but this will work too.
Q.2 The project is running to schedule, and you are near the end. The customer suddenly phones
you and wants to “add just one little thing” and still get delivery as originally agreed. The “one little
thing” is actually reasonably significant. You are new to the company. The customer tells you that
your predecessor always accommodated such requests. What do you do?
(a) Say yes. Satisfying the customer is what it’s all about.
0 points: No. No. No. Of course it’s about satisfying the customer – but not at this price.
(b) Ask the team to work some nights and weekends and have a moan with them about “bloody
0 points: Or this. This is the same as (a).
(c) Implement change control and try to accommodate the client’s desire for the end date.
