Chandra,


Thanks for your response..mine and your answer are same...but i'm still confused..as can not co-related with PM-Book/rita...Any idea where i can refer definition

For Q # 2, Pl. refer PMBOK 4 Section 2.1.2 ; Also JIM Owen's article on Scope Management (you can down load from PMHUB.NET website.


For Q# 3- Portfolio Management - PMBOK 4 Chapter 2 Page 25


THUMBRULE:  Always look into PMBOK first by typing a keyword in the Find box in the pdf file you are allowed to download as a PMI member.  You can navigate through all the instances where your key word is found in the PMBOK.  Also you can use PMBOK Glossary at the end

gents, in regards to question2, project outputs could include service, result or product..so why is answer B correct?

Again for question 4, the question is asking under which process the project output will be produced...shouldn't this be Execute phase (Directing and managing Project execution) as its output is the "Deliverables".

For Q#4, all other choices (2,3,4) are work in progress.  They go through iteration of M&C and execution until internally accepted where as Closing Process involves Verification and Acceptance by the customer.  That is the concluding phase.  Your product/project/service/result is not considered produced until formal acceptance and verification by the customer.

1. Answer is 4. Before creating new contract it is to be checked nothing is left now.


2. Answer is 4. Rest of all are not true with reference to PMBOK.


3. Answer is 4. 1 is project management. 2 is PMO 3 is program management


4. Answer is 4. Deliverables are produced during Directing and managing project execution. Closing does not produce or varify deliverables. Verify scope is also process under Monitor and control, but this process group does not produce deliverables.
