- Speculate on the overall different project management strategies that you would apply, based on the tool that you have selected.
- Analyze whether continuous process improvements would have helped the delivery of your project. Provide a rationale to support your response.
- Speculate on whether using risk management techniques would have affected the delivery of your project.
