PMP Exam Prep Question of the Week

The HR Director has requested a meeting with you to discuss a new project.  Which of the following tasks should you not expect to be involved with?

  1. Evaluate the feasibility of the new service within given assumptions and constraints
  2. Identify project limitations and propose an implementation approach
  3. Compare projects based on hurdle criteria to identify the most appropriate
  4. Ensure expectation alignment and gain support for the project

The correct answer is 3.

Compare projects based on hurdle criteria to identify the most appropriate is incorrect because it describes a process of project selection which is outside of the scope of the responsibilities of a project manager.  All other answers describe tasks that were identified in the latest PMP Role Delineation Study as things that a project manager should do during initiating.  These tasks were included in the PMP Examination Blueprint, and the application for the examination.
