A project team member informs you that one of her colleagues is furious about the project schedule you recently e-mailed to the team. You decide to postpone addressing the problem in order to better prepare to resolve it. This technique is called ______________________.
- Compromise/Problem Solve
The correct answer is 4.
Withdraw/avoid refers to retreating from conflict in order to let someone else resolve it or better prepare. Answer 1 and 3 are incorrect, because the parties have not begun to work toward a solution. Answer 2 is not listed in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge—Fifth Edition (PMBOK® Guide) as a conflict resolution technique, so it is also incorrect.
