  in the middle of a project?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


schedule slips : Firstly ,Project manager along with his team should assess and study the reason/reasons behind this slip in order to eliminate it/them in the future and to log it in the lesson learned document for future use.

Secondly ,He/she can look at tasks' dependencies,those are not in the critical path and try to parallelize them. Also, He/she can preform a quick task re-estimation in order to shrink the planned duration for all upcoming tasks including these in critical path. In addition, she could add more resources to accomplish the tasks
the last option is the worst ever ,as it will lead to extra cost and raise more risks. and it is not applicable in every and each case.

increased requirements: since it might lead to delay ,run over budget
reason : unclear vision ,
