    These are some typical questions based on the first two chapters in the
    book.
    Remember to get the full marks for each questions you need to write
    five paragraphs for each question. Each paragraph should explain the
    point you are trying to make and then explain why it is important to
    project managers. So for example the barriers to effective
    communication might be five paragraphs like:
    1) Time zones are one of the key barriers to communication in
    multi-national projects. This makes communication difficult as the
    working period of different team members may not overlap and the remote
    working can make it difficult for the project to build trust 
    between team members. Project managers can overcome this by organising
    face to face start up meeting of key project team members or by using
    on-line conferencing facilities to build relationships.
    Five more like that and you should get full marks.
    So the questions for this week are, please complete any two from the
    questions below.
    1) List and describe five functions that a project office can perform?
    2) Describe five typical responsibilities of a project sponsor?
    3) Describe five situations in which portfolio management would be
    appropriate?
    4) List and describe five activities that take place during handover
    and closeout?
    5) Describe five different types of project reviews?
    6) Describe five advantages of adopting a structured method?
    7) Explain the benefits of project governance?

    4) b) A post project review will be carried out. This will be documented by the project manager and filed securely for future reference. It may include what went well, what didn’t go so well and what lessons can be learned for future projects.

    4) c) Training may need to be provided to those who will operate the projects products. This could be relatively simply hands on training or could be extensive commissioning for a more complex product.

    That from the top of my head. I’m sure I’m short of full marks but would like to think I’m on the right lines at least.
