PM Question of the Week - week 52 2014

Dear colleague, welcome to the "PM question of the week" newsletter # 52 2014.

This week PMP question aims to test your knowledge regarding the interaction between project management processes.

Which of the following is sometimes pictured as a "background" group of Project Management processes?
a. Project integration management.
b. Monitoring and controlling.
c. Project risk management.
d. Planning.

Answer to question and explanation

The correct answer is b. Monitoring and controlling.

Explanation: this is because Monitoring and Controlling processes occur at the same time as processes belonging to other project groups. Planning processes activity on the other hand decrease as the project progresses, therefore answer d. Planning. is wrong.
a. project integration management. is an area of knowledge, and not a process group, while c. Project risk management. is a single process, and not a process group: if you answered a. or c. you probably misread the question.
