Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:
- Using an example, describe a project in terms that are common to most projects.
- You are given a project to manage. How do you decide whether to use a predictive or adaptive approach?
[Your initial post should be based upon the assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a source listed in your reference section and cited within the body of the text. Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid in your discussion].
[Your initial post should be at least 450+ words and in APA format (including Times New Roman with font size 12 and double spaced). Post the actual body of your paper in the discussion thread then attach a Word version of the paper for APA review]
