By referring to the WBS Dictionary, the project manager can identify the specific work package that is causing trouble and determine the responsible person for it. Additionally, the code of account can be used to track the financial aspects of the work package, ensuring that it is properly accounted for in the project budget.

This process helps in evaluating different approaches and selecting the most suitable one for the project.

    B. Project Charter
    Explanation
    A project charter is an input to define the scope process. It is a document that formally authorizes the existence of a project and provides the project manager with the authority to apply organizational resources to project activities. The project charter outlines the project's objectives, scope, stakeholders, and high-level requirements. It serves as a foundation for the project and helps in establishing the project's boundaries and overall direction. The project charter is typically developed early in the project lifecycle and is used as a reference throughout the project to ensure that the project remains aligned with its initial goals and objectives.

    Correct Answer
    C. Historical information and Lessons learned from previous phases or projects
    Explanation
    Historical information and lessons learned from previous phases or projects will help in hosting the 10 kilometer walk. Since the person has already worked on a similar project of hosting a 5 kilometer walk two years back, the knowledge and experience gained from that project can be utilized to plan and execute the current project effectively. This information can provide insights into what worked well, what challenges were faced, and what strategies can be implemented to ensure the success of the 10 kilometer walk.

    The following is true about WBS

    • A.

      The WBS is another term foe Gantt (Bar) chart

    • B.

      The WBS shows only critical path activities

    • C.

      Work not in WBS is usually defined in the scope statement of the project

    • D.

      . Each descending level represents an increasingly detailed description of the project deliverables.

    Correct Answer
    D. . Each descending level represents an increasingly detailed description of the project deliverables.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that each descending level represents an increasingly detailed description of the project deliverables. This means that the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) breaks down the project into smaller and more manageable components, with each level providing a more specific description of the project deliverables. This allows for better understanding and organization of the project tasks and helps in planning, scheduling, and tracking the progress of the project. The WBS is not the same as a Gantt (Bar) chart, it does not show only critical path activities, and work not in the WBS is usually defined in the scope statement of the project.

    All of the following are activities included in decomposition except

    • A.

      Organising the WBS

    • B.

      Decomposing the upper WBS levels into lower level detailed components

    • C.

      Defining project phases

    • D.

      Developing and assigning identification codes to WBS components

    Correct Answer
    C. Defining project phases
    Explanation
    The activities included in decomposition involve breaking down a project into smaller, manageable components. Organizing the WBS, decomposing the upper WBS levels, and developing and assigning identification codes to WBS components are all part of this process. However, defining project phases is not directly related to decomposition. While project phases may be defined as part of project planning, they are not specifically mentioned as an activity in the decomposition process.

    Correct Answer
    D. Decline to make changes until a change request is made and change control is performed
    Explanation
    The best way for the project manager to handle the situation is to decline making any changes until a formal change request is made and the change control process is followed. This ensures that any potential scope changes are properly evaluated and documented, allowing for a thorough analysis of the cost-benefit and impact on the project baseline. It also ensures that the project sponsor is informed and involved in the decision-making process.

    A. Accepted deliverables
    Explanation
    The Control Scope Process involves monitoring the status of the project scope and managing changes to the scope baseline. Accepted deliverables are not an output of this process. Accepted deliverables are the verified and approved project outputs that have met the specified criteria. They are a result of the Validate Scope Process, which is different from the Control Scope Process. The Control Scope Process mainly deals with managing changes to the project scope and ensuring that the project remains within the defined scope boundaries.

This document outlines the tasks, activities, and requirements necessary to complete the project successfully. It provides a clear understanding of what needs to be accomplished and serves as a reference for the team throughout the project. This helps ensure that all team members are aligned and working towards the same goals.

    Correct Answer
    D. It is the process of formalizing acceptance of the completed project deliverables
    Explanation
    Scope verification is the process of formalizing acceptance of the completed project deliverables. This means that it involves confirming that the deliverables meet the requirements and specifications outlined in the project scope. It is different from quality control, which focuses on the acceptance of the deliverables and meeting the quality requirements. Scope verification is necessary regardless of whether revisions or changes have been made to the project scope, and it is not dependent on the project being completed on time and within budget.
