You are the project manager for a large project that is completed on time and on budget. The customer and all of the stakeholders are pleased with the results. As a direct result of the successful completion of the project, your manager approves a bonus of $25,000 to you. There are fifteen members of the project team. One of the people on the project team has been a very low contributor to the project; the other fourteen have all been above standard. What should you do with the money?
A. Keep the money yourself; you deserve it, and the manager gave it to you.
B. Divide the money equally among all the team members.
C. Ask the team members how they would divide the money.
D. Divide the money equally among the team members except for the substandard team member.

I am looking for best answer to this question. I got this question from Sean Whitaker.

I would say B, divide equally, because PM doesn't do micromanagement

Would say B

A and C are wrong choices because obviously ethics and assertiveness do not allow them

D is wrong because no where in the question is it mentioned clearly that the manager wants to use coercive powers to punish the substandard employee. Further there arent sufficient reasons for explaining the substandard output and finally there is no mention of any organizational policy to determine contributions therefore choosing this option is equivalent to choosing A as we are trying to maximize our individual share

I Agree, in real life i would choose option B. however I will set with the low performer member to point out his weaknesses and give him some advises to improve his performance.

I would also opt for B as it is in line with the fairness policy of the PMI code of ethics.
