Motivational Quote: "Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success." - Swami Vivekananda:
Motivational Quote: "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours." -- Henry David Thoreau
Motivational Quote: "It's really important that you feel good. Because this feeling good is what goes out as a signal into the universe and starts to attract more of itself to you. So the more you can feel good, the more you will attract the things that help you feel good and that will keep bringing you up higher and higher." - Joe Vitale
Communication Channels Question - PMP (Easy and Tough)
1. John is project manager project is interacting with six stakeholders. Three new stakeholders join the project. How many new channels have been added?
a. 15 channels b. 21 channels c. 24 channels d. 36 channels
The number of communication channels = n(n-1)/2 where n= number of stakeholders
In this question the project manager is interacting with six other stakeholders. Therefore there are seven stakeholders.
The number of communication channels = 7(6)/2= 42/2= 21 channels.
Three new stakeholders join. Therefore there are now ten stakeholders.
The number of communication channels = 10(9)/2= 90/2= 45 channels.
So for 21 channels for seven people and now have 45 channels for ten people. Therefore (45-21) =24 new channels have been added.
Hope this clear your concept.
Now will discuss on tough question
2. John is project manager project is interacting with six stakeholders. and now there are new 45 channels added for new stakeholders, What is total no of stakeholders in team now.
a. 15 Stakeholders b. 21 Stakeholders c. 17 Stakeholders d. 36 Stakeholders
Method 1. For this sort question how to find Stakeholders count from Channels find multiplication number to 90 like 15*6 =90 18*5=90 10*9=90
But from above list find that both the multiplication number should next to each other So 10*9 is right option , then for 45 Channels there are 10 is Stakeholder
Now existing 7 stakeholder including Manager + 10 new stakeholders = 17 Stakeholders
Check the each answer and match with channels(45) and find the solution Eg. Total stakeholder are 7
eg. For 15 stakeholders = 15-7= 8 , 8*7/2= 28 eg. For 21 stakeholders = 21-7= 14, 14*13/2= 91 eg. For 17 stakeholders = 17-7= 10, 10*9/2= 45 eg. For 36 stakeholders = 36-7= 29, 36*35/2=630
So for 17 stakeholders Channels are 45 , Then your answer is C, Total 17 stakeholders
Motivational Quote: "I don't think there's any such thing as setting your goals too
high. The higher you set your goals, the more you are going to work. If you
don't reach them, then it's okay, just as long as you set it and then give 100%
of yourself." -- Dan Jansen
