Pending scope change requests question

prashant.spce's picture

You are asked to take over a project with lot of pending scope change requests. To assess the
change impact, you should get hold of

A) Scope statement
B) WBS
C) Project Plan
D) Scope Management Plan


My answer here is D since it states clearly that there are pending scope change requests.


Please reply with urs with the explanation in case urs is different :-)

 I will go with Option "A" since this is the base from which scope baseline is derived

the reason why i chose Scope management plan is this that since there are pending scope changes which can be handled/managed by looking at the scope management plan.

I agree. Is D the right answer?

RMC  V 7 book.. page number 112


it says that


"For example,if a question talks about a problem on a project,the answer might be for  the project manager to


look at the management plan to see how the plan says to handle such a problem."

I will go with B.


In order to know the impact of change. YOu should have integrated approch . You need to analyze impact scope,cost and schedule. only PM plan can give you that.


let us know the correct answer?

Yes B looks like the correct answer.

IF PSS STOPS - WBS WILL AUTO STOPS

IF WBS STOPS  - PSS WILL NOT STOP

HENCE OPTION A IS TRUE.

A is my answer

I feel "WBS" is the answer....

Hi Prashant,


 


What is the right answer BTW?


 


Warmly, KK.....

Right answer in mock test question is WBS.


I framed a question here, check it with PMBOK


Since lot of pending change requests are to be reviewed, Two Team Members discussing, Why PM is insisting to hold project state statement, while hold on WBS is sufficient for, your best answer would be: Because


A. Many WBSs will be affected


B. Entire scope will be affected


C. Many constraints assumptions and milestones will not be fit to the new approved changes and to avoid affected WBS could be created on old constraints assumptions and milestones.


D. Due to approved changes Scope baseline will be affected and holding WBS means hold of entire Project scope statement


 Also refer 5.2.3.1 1st para last 2 lines.
