Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C

A dedicated team is a type of project team often seen in project-oriented organizations, where most of the resources are involved in project work and project managers have high authority over the team. In a dedicated team, project team members often work full-time on the project and under the project manager's authority while functional managers have very little authority over them.


Details for each option:

A. Project team members usually report directly to the project manager.
Incorrect. This statement is true. In a dedicated team, the project team members are full-time on the project and under the project manager's control. In this type of project team, team members directly report to the project manager.

B. Dedicated teams are often seen in project-oriented organizations.
Incorrect. This statement is true. In a project-oriented organization, most of its resources are involved in project work and project managers often have considerable authority to their project teams.

C. The functional managers control the project resources and the project manager may have little authority over its team members.
Correct. This statement is false. In a dedicated team, the functional managers have no authority over the team members because they usually stop carrying out their normal functions to work full-time on the project.

D. In a dedicated team, project team members often work full-time on the project.
Incorrect. This statement is true. In a dedicated team, the project team members are often assigned to work full-time on the project, so that they could focus on the project's objective with a clear line of authority.
