Minimally, it can helpyou to reset expectations with your stakeholders so they have a better idea of what’s coming.9. Answer: CThis is a resource constraint, because the project manager’s resources – in this case, the people who willbe testing the software – are not going to be available to her when she needs them. Yes, this will causeproblems with the quality, introduce risks, and cause schedule problems. But they’re not schedule, time orrisk constraints, because there’s no outside limitation placed on the project quality, schedule or risks. Theonly outside limitation is the resource availability. If they were available, there wouldn’t be a problem!10. Answer: CThe way that the project manager interacts with the people on his team interfered with his work gettingdone.
