    You are the Project Manager of an engineering project that is about to close. The customer asks for a major change. What would you do in this scenario?
    SELECT THE CORRECT ANSWER
    A. Discuss with the team to figure out the impact of the change
    B. Refuse the change request and proceed with closure
    C. Go ahead and accept the change
    D. Discuss the situation with your senior management
    Correct Option:D

    EXPLANATION

    The project is nearly complete (about to close), and the impact of the change is known to be major. Therefore, you need to get direction from your management before responding to the customer.

    My query is, wont you evaluate impact of the change before going to senior management to enable them to make any decision

    Okay - what is the issue - is it within the mechanics and understanding of the team, or is it within the mechanics and relationship with the stakeholder? I am torn - I want to go to the team, but it may not be a problem that the team can help me with. I see the logic of the correct answer.

    Anyone else?
