Project Manager Behavioral Questions - High Level
Question: Have you ever had to execute a project with a small budget, or a lack of resources? How did you address these issues?
a. It’s always important to budget carefully, even with a large budget.
b. Depending on your industry, different things are expensive.
c. Securing more funding is a solution, too.
Example: In 2018, we had a slow few quarters that caused the company to have to downsize. It was no excuse to do things that would result in expensive repairs later— for instance, it’s hard to find talented workers, so I argued that we avoid laying off employees. Instead, I used free time to check the books and got the department head to reduce operational waste 25%.
