    Instead of rejoicing at the end of a project, the stakeholders are breathing a sigh of relief. None of them were confident that the project would meet the end date. Which of the following is NOT one of the reasons that this project had difficulty?
    SELECT THE CORRECT ANSWER

    Lack of a payback period
    Lack of milestones
    Lack of a communication plan
    Lack of a stakeholder management plan

    I think it should be lack of communication since
    the project completed so it may be assumed that milestones, payback period or stakeholder management was being done

    however the lack of confidence might have been there in the team as they members might be unaware of the overall progress of the MLs

    Hi Arvind,
    You mean to say the 1st option is correct? If so, how?

    In Project where there is no proper scheduling ( lack of Mile stone) . no organised communication and don't know how to engage stakeholders , it just like driving in dark without head lights , if you still reach to destination you feel a sigh of relief (Thank God journey is over). Lack of all these points to lack of proper project management.
    Last 3 options are surely leading to difficulty in project.
    How does lack of payback period makes the project difficult? It is certainly something that is considered before project is chartered.
    What does lack of payback period means? does it mean 0 payback period?
    What is payback period for a project for social cause where benefits are intangible or a project in response to some legal or regulatory requirement ? To me option 1 is business decision where as rest of option are related to planning of project which indirectly means if project is not planned it is going to be difficult.

    Sahil let me know what is correct answer and what is source of question.

    Thanks Arvind (PMP :)) ,
    Its the first option (lack of payback period). I fully agree with your explanation. I made the classic mistake of overlooking the "NOT" keyword!

    Yes Sahil ,I can understand it. I made such mistakes frequently during my preparations for PMP exam . Ultimately i started highlighting for Not Except or common mistakes i was repeatedly making. Better part of PMP exam is that you can highlight text you want in PMP exam interface (which is not available in most of online simulation tests). it makes your job easy.
    Other thing i noticed we make such mistakes more when we focus on clock rather than question statement. many time we feel this is easy question and miss not or except in statement in hurry. In simulation test here they are writing it in capital but in exam no such differentiation is there.

    Thanks Arvind. Yes you are absolutely right.....I tend to miss this due to clock and the lure of question being easy. I am in my last 9 days to exam. Any more tips that will be helpful?

    One advice for you, if you took simulation tests and got less than 75% average you should reschedule.
