Who comes up with such definitions?
Saw this question in Oliver Lehmann 75 questions.
What is a constructive change?
1. A change request that helps improving the project and its product, service or result and is discussed generally in a friendly style.
2. A direction by the buyer or an action taken by the seller that the other party considers an undocumented change to the contract.
3. A field change or ad-hoc change mandated by the project customer in a public construction project.
4. A change request which will lead to the re-construction of an older version of the project performance baseline by the contractor.
Correct answer is 2 while I chose 1.
Now my question is who comes up with such definitions? I mean "constructive" is a positive word and it is normally used in positive sense like constructive criticism, constructive conflict e.t.c
Who would have thought that it can also be used in negative sense!? Isn't it stupid!? Or this is how English language is and PMI creates definitions on whims?
