Your project is slightly behind schedule, and you have not yet made a full impact assessment to make associated project changes to accommodate it. The weekly project status meeting is this afternoon, and because of your conference call schedule this morning you will not be able to complete the assessment to report to in the meeting. However, this is only a minor delay and you do not want anyone to worry unnecessarily. What is the best response?
A. Use contingency reserves to compensate for the delay and report that progress is as planned.
B. Report the actual status of the project in the meeting, and assure the project team that additional updates will be coming soon.
C. Inform the project team the progress is slightly behind schedule, and use the contingency reserves to cover the delay.
D. Say nothing about the delay at this time, and report that there are no major issues.
