B at the middle of the analysis phase
C. At the end of the analysis phases
D. At the end of the design phase
6. The SDLC used in a “waterfall” context typically maximizes continuous user feedback throughout the analysis and design phase
7. to succeed as a systems analyst in leading systems analysis and design projects to a successful conclusion, the most important skill for the …. analyst is expert-level proficiency in hands-on tasks such as software development.
8.Explain why information requirements determination (information gathering) in systems analysis has such a profound impact on the quality…ultimately completed and implemented system. In your expiation, also include the potential outcome of a systems analysis and design. Which the information requirements determination efforts are inadequate.
9. the critical path in project management is so-named because it is the set of the most difficult task in a project.
10.open-enede questions are typically asked by the interviewer when the time frame for analyzing interview results is short.
11. In order for a prototype to be useful in gathering feedback on a proposed system interface, all features of the prototype of the interface must be functional T/F
12 A potential drawback of the use of prototyping in systems development is a tendency to avoid formal documentation. T/F
13.In information systems planning, an advantage of the bottom-up planning strategy is that it provides a broader perspective of …… than does a top-down planning approach. T/F
14. A completed information systems project product may still be considered to be a failure even when all scope, time ,and cost go… T/F
15. the first phase in the SDLC is Analysis
16. in the SDLC analysis phase, requirements structuring must take place before requirements determination can be completed. T
17.the correct acronym for a leading global professional association for project management is
18. a “walkthrough” is a review process that is a very effective way to ensure quality of information system.
19. in a numbered list. Identify four issues in project management of information systems project that may contribute to the low success rates in this type of project. For each issue identified, provide a convincing justification of why it tends to be problematic. (this is a 20 -point question)

3. explain the overall purpose the construction of a WBS serve in project management ( in other words ,what would be the drawbacks to not identify… for a project?)
22. Provide a minimum of two clear and concise guidelines to advise a systems analyst on when prototyping might be considered as a viable alternative to other methods of determining system requirements.
23. Identify and explain what you consider to be the two most important skills needed in order for a project manager to lead a project to a successful conclusion. Next provide a strong justification as to why you believe they are essential skills for success in project management.
24. In a numbers list, identify and explain at least two factors that have a potential impact on selecting the optimal systems development methodology by an organization.
25. The Gantt Chart view in Microsoft Project actually represents the WBS for a project in some detail.
26. When using observation as an information requirements determination strategy, the best results are achieved when the employees being observed are conscious of the fact.
27. Identify and explain at least two major potential drawbacks to using a waterfall development methodology in systems development.
