Hello everyone! Here is this week's free PMP exam sample question from the PM Exam Simulator.

You just took over the management of an industrial construction project, which is in the execution phase. You determine that your team is communicating directly with their client company's peers. According to the Communications Management Plan, all client interaction should be performed through the project manager. What is the potential reason for your team's behavior?

A. The Communications Management Plan is not comprehensive
B. The Project Management Plan has not been shared with the team
C. The previous project manager is not a PMP
D. The Communications Management Plan was later updated

HINT: The Project Management Plan contains the Communications Management Plan.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

Answer choice 'A' is incorrect since the scenario indicates that the Communications Management Plan is intact and it outlines that the project manager is responsible for all the interactions with the client organization. Answer choice 'D' is also incorrect since there is a conflict between the Communications Management Plan and the team's behavior. Answer choice 'C' is incorrect as we can't conclude from the scenario whether the last project manager was a PMP or not. The Project Management Plan contains the Communications Management Plan and this information was neither shared with the team nor was it enforced.
