A DELPHI study can best study what type of problem Simplistic, not mult-faceted
What two project management techniques model a network/sequence of parrell & corresponding tasks? PERT & CPM
What is PERT? Program Evaluation & Review Technique
What is CPM? Critical Path Method
What is the difference between PERT & CPM PERT: VARIABLE task times. CPM: FIXED task times.
Why does the task increment escalate in 10s in PERT In order that new tasks may be inserted as project progresses
What two management principles deal with a hierachy of needs? Maslow & ERG
What does ERG stand for? Existence, Relatedness, Growth
What is the primary differences between Maslow & ERG? Maslow: a large # multiple steps, each achieved at the completion of the next, all people act same. ERG: only 3 steps, steps may overlap or parrallel, and all people different
What is a Gantt chart? Schematic that shows the steps/tasks of project on a parrelle, horizontal model.
What is a WBS Work Breakdown Stucture. It is a form of a Gantt chart, by which multi tasks are broken down and identifies
