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

You are currently planning your project and identifying various project risks. One of the project tasks is new and unique. Neither you nor your company has ever carried out such a task. Which of the following information gathering techniques is suitable for conclusively identifying risks associated with this new task?

A. Delphi Technique
B. Brainstorming
C. Expert Judgment
D. Interviewing

HINT: Neither you nor your company have any sort of experience in carrying out similar activities. Consider choices A and C because they involve subject matter experts. However, only one is the best answer.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is A.

Both Delphi Technique and Expert Judgment are good answers to this question. However, the Delphi Technique is the better option because the question asked you to conclusively identify the risks. Expert Judgment will only give you a list or risks as identified by one or more experts without discussion. On the other hand, the Delphi Technique is designed to result in a peer reviewed list, which indicates a consensus among the experts.
