Had me go through a Project Management case study which apparently is a real one that they are struggling with. The case study was two column layout from Excel , one column had bunch of acronyms and the other column had Epic 1 through Epic 8 or something. I was told to go solve the problem on a white board, the project has to be delivered in 12 weeks.

1 Answer

As a PM in real world I ask lots of questions before I decide on a solution. Exactly what I did, I got some clarification what the acronyms meant - they represented teams name in their Beijing Office, Toronto Office, Vancouver office etc. I proposed what a typical PM would do , prioritize the tasks, optimize resources, hire fire as needed, pay overtime if required, consult Subject Matter Experts, Outsource part of the project , renegotiate delivery time line with stakeholders as a last resort etc etc,. None of my answers satisfied the panel and they would just tell me- not allowed, not allowed.
