Give me a specific example of a time when you used good judgment and logic in solving a problem
In many issues, there is not always a clear distinction between right and a wrong. In order to do the right thing, we always need to use good judgment to manage an issue or crisis.
Having built experience through various project management roles, I have developed the necessary tools through having an objective view, by avoiding making quick decisions.
I recall an experience where I felt under
pressure from external clients, personnel from other departments,
and members of my team to act and make a decision about
missing a deadline or changing the time schedule in advance.
By escalating my concern to my manager who I felt was the best person to assist me in making the right decision.
After a brief conversation with my manager, I gathered all necessary information to make an informed decision about moving the project deadline back to avoid failing in certain criteria.
Building and retaining a good reputation with this external client was critical not only to my career success within the organization but also to a long standing relationship with this client.
