What is the definition of project scope?

The work the project will do to deliver the product of the project


What is the process of scope management?

  • Plan Scope Management
  • Collect Requirements
  • Define Scope
  • Create WBS
  • Validate Scope

What is the definition of scope management?

Defining what work is required and then making sure all of that work, and only that work, is included in the project


What are the key outputs of the Plan Scope Management process?

  • Scope management plan
  • Requirements management plan


What are the key outputs fo the Collect Requirements process?

  • Requirements documentation
  • Requirements traceability matrix


What is the key output of the Define Scope process?

Project scope statement


What are the key outputs of the Create WBS process?

  • Work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • WBS dictionary
  • Scope baseline (the WBS and WBS dictionary are components of the scope baseline)


What are the key outputs of the Validate Scope process?

  • Work performance information
  • Accepted deliverables
  • Change requests
  • Updates to project documents


What are the key outputs of the Control Scope process?

  • Work performance information
  • Change requests
  • Updates to the project management plan and project documents


Name several requirements-gathering techniques

  • Reviewing historical records
  • Interviewing
  • Focus groups
  • Facilitated workshops
  • Brainstorming
  • Nominal group technique
  • Multi-criteria decision analysis
  • Mind maps
  • Affinity diagrams
  • Questionnaires and surveys
  • Observation
  • Prototypes
  • Benchmarking
  • Context diagrams
  • Group decision making


What is the value of a requirements traceability matrix?

Helps link requirements to objectives and/or other requirements to make sure the project meets strategic goals


What requirement attributes might be recorded in the requirements traceability matrix document?

  • Requirement identification number
  • Source of the requirement
  • Who is assigned to manage the requirement
  • Status of the requirement


What is a project scope statement?

A description of the project deliverables and the work required to create those deliverables


What are the key items included in a project scope statement?

  • Assumptions and constraints


Product analysis is part of which scope management process?

Define Scope


When is a work breakdown structure (WBS) created, and what is it used for?

  • Used to help determine project staffing, estimating, scheduling, and risk management


What is decomposition?

Subdividing the major deliverables into smaller, more managable components


What is a work breakdown structure (WBS) dictionary?

A description of the work to be done for each work package


How are work packages different from activities?

  • Activities are generated from each work package
  • Work packages are shown in a work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • Activities are shown in an activity list and network diagram


What is the Validate Scope process?

The process of gaining formal acceptance of the deliverables by the customer or sponsor


When is the Validate Scope process done?

During project monitoring and controlling and at the end of each phase of the project life cycle


What makes up the scope baseline?

  • Project scope statement
  • Work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • Work breakdown structure (WBS) dictionary
