PMP Exam Prep Question of the Week

Reward authority of the project manager is based upon the belief that the project manager can issue rewards. Examples of rewards include bonuses, time off, or a coveted job assignment. The PMI feels that this is one of the ________ forms of authority.

  1. Most often abused
  2. Least used
  3. Ill advised
  4. Best


The correct answer is 4.

According to the PMI, penalty authority is often abused, not reward authority, so most often abused is incorrect. Reward authority is often used to bring about continued positive results, and thus is not an ill advised form of authority.
