You as a project manager, are assigned to an ongoing project. The ex-project manager of the same project is your friend and he told you: "I don't know why, but there are a lot of problem with the budget." To find the root cause of the problem, you start to examine the budget. There are 3 estimations made for each activity: pessimistic, optimistic and most likely. Estimations are done by team members. Among the estimations, most likely estimation is assumed to be the cost of the activity. Then it is used to calculate the budget. CPI is 1.24 and SPI is 0.98. Which of the following best describes the problem about the budget?


Options are :

  • Estimations should not be made by team members. It is project manager’s responsibility. Since team members don’t know the project management concepts, they probably make mistakes while estimating.
  • To stay on the safe side, the pessimistic estimation should be used instead of most likely estimation.
  • Since CPI is 1.24, everything is fine. You don’t need to worry about the budget.
  • Three-point estimating is not made properly and this should be the main reason for the problems.

Answer : Three-point estimating is not made properly and this should be the main reason for the problems.
