While creating a project charter, you discover a new project management software tool has come onto the market. You spend the weekend taking an online tutorial to learn about it. This is an example of:
Your top team member has performed extremely well, and you want to reward her. She knows that you don’t have enough money in the budget to give her a bonus, so she approaches you and requests an extra day off, even though she is out of vacation days.

You are initiating a project that has a virtual team. Half of your team members will be located in another country, where they are working for a subcontractor.

Another team member points out an opportunity to save money an another area to offset the risk: if an existing component can be adapted, it will save the project $4,500 in engineering costs. There is a 65% probability that the team can take advantage of that opportunity. What is the expected monetary value (EMV) of these two things?
Which of the following is not a tool or technique of Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis?
