I have been asked for some hard APMP questions so here we go:
1) List and describe five roles of a programme manager and explain how each is different from the role of a project manager. (50)
2) List and describe five reasons why project configuration management is important for successful projects. (50)
3) List and describe five actions a project manager should take when monitoring and updating a project risk register. (50)
4) Describe five duties of a project manager in respect of health and safety (50)
5.1) State the purpose of the business case. (10)
5.2) Explain three different investment appraisal techniques (30)
5.3) Describe one factor that should be considered in addition to the investment appraisal when considering a business case (10)
6.1) Explain the difference between a risk and an issue (1)
6.2) List and describe the different stage in the issue management process.
Remember to get 10 marks each paragraph should consist of two to three sentences. i recommends the first says what, the second says why and the third gives an example.
e.g. One role of the programme manger is to define and monitor the realisation of the programme benefits. This is important because as part of it’s governance structure the organisation needs to make sure the promised benefits are delivered. An example of this would be tracking the actual sales of a new product against the assumptions made in the business case. (five more like this for each answer)
