PRINCE2Practitioner Certification Exam Questions

1. Based on lessons from previous projects that used the ABC Company standard development model, the project board has set low cost and time tolerances for stage 2. As a result, the project manager plans to set very low tolerances for time and cost for all work packages to be carried out during stage 2. Is this an appropriate application of the ‘manage by exception’ principle, and why?


2. During stage 4, a work package was authorized for the ‘delivered pilot courses’ to be completed by the end of week 2. The ‘finalized materials’ work package will start in week 3. Both work packages have zero tolerances, and finalizing the materials is dependent on feedback from the pilot courses.

During week 1, there were some problems with the pilot courses, so at the start of week 2 the team manager rescheduled the courses to week 3, and reported this in the weekly checkpoint report as the end of week 2.

Should the team manager have reported this delay previously as an issue, and why?


3. The project is now closed. The expected increase in revenue is not being achieved. It has been agreed with the team manager for the ‘marketing materials’ that additional marketing activities will be undertaken to achieve the expected increase in revenue.

Is the team manager’s response appropriate, and why?


10. The project is in stage 2. The project manager is reviewing stage status and has collected the checkpoint reports from the team managers.
