PM Question of the Week - week 47 2014
Dear colleague, welcome to our "PM question of the week" newsletter for week 47 2014.
In this issue of our weekly newsletter we focus on a key concept that is pervasively mentioned throughout the PMBoK, often as a process output: change requests.
Answer to question and explanation
The correct answer is b. Defect repair.
Explanation: preventive and corrective actions are aimed to align the project work with the baseline, and therefore they usually do not affect the baseline itself. Risk acceptance is a risk response strategy, not a type of change request. A defect repair change request is usually an output of the quality control or validate scope processes: it may be issued for example when a deliverable of the project has not been accepted for quality issues. As such, a defect repair usually directly affects the scope baseline of the project.
