Sub-objective: Sequence tasks.


Single answer, multiple-choice


You create a project plan and have two tasks that need to be linked together. You want to ensure that the “Define Business Model” task does not end before you complete the “Define Outsourcing Strategy” task. How should you link the two tasks?



  1. Start-to-Finish.
  2. Start-to-Start.
  3. Finish-to-Finish.
  4. Finish-to-Start.

Answer:
C. Finish-to-Finish.


Tutorial:
You should link the two tasks as Finish-to-Finish, which requires that a dependent task be completed only when a task on which it depends also is completed. In this scenario, you must ensure that the “Define Outsourcing Strategy” task is completed so the dependent “Define Business Model” task can be completed.


You should not link the tasks as Start-to-Finish because this would allow a dependent task to be completed only when the task on which it depends has started.


You should not link the tasks as Start-to-Start because this would prevent the dependent task from being started until the task on which it depends has started.


You should not link the tasks as Finish-to-Start because this would allow a dependent task to begin only when the task on which it depends is completed.
