The project statement of work
is a narrative description of products or services to be delivered by the project.
Product scope description
this documents the characteristics of the product that the project will be undertaken to create. The description should also document the relationship between the products or services being created and the business need that the project will address.
Develop project management plan
s the process of documenting the actions necessary to define, prepare, integrate, and coordinate all subsidiary plans.
The project management plan defines how the project is executed, monitored and controlled, and closed.
The project management plan can be either summary level or detailed.
Direct and manage project execution
the process of performing the work defined in the project management plan to achieve the project’s objectives
documented direction for executing the project work to bring expected future performance of the project work in line with the project management plan
a document direction to perform an activity that can reduce the probability of negative consequences associated with project risks.
the formally documented identification of a defect in a project component with a recommendation to either repair the defect or completely replace the component.
approved change requests
a change control status update will indicate that some changes are approved and some are not. Approved changes requests may require implementation of preventive or corrective actions.
project management information system
provides access to an automated tool.
an approved deliverable is any unique and verifiable product, result, or capability to perform a service that must be produced to complete a process, phase, or project.
Monitor and control project work
is the process of tracking, reviewing, and regulating the progress to meet the performance objectives defined in the project management plan. You monitor an aspect of project management performed throughout the project.
Perform integrated change control
is the process of reviewing all change requests, approving changes and managing changes to the deliverables, organizational process assets, project documents and the project management plan.
every documented change request must be either approved or rejected by some authority within the project management team or external organization
selection and identification of a configuration item provides the basis for which product configuration is defined and verified, products and documents are labeled, changes are managed, and accountability is maintained.
configuration status accounting
information is recorded and reported as to when appropriate data about the configuration item should be provided.
configuration verification and audit
configuration verification and configuration audits ensure the composition of a project’s configuration items is correct and that corresponding changes are registered, assessed, approved ,tracked, and correctly implanted.
close project or phase
is the process of finalizing all activities across all of the project management process groups to formally complete the project or phase. When closing the project, the project manager will review all prior information from the previous phase closures to ensure that all project work is complete and that the project has met its objectives.
Project scope management
includes the processes required to ensure that the project includes all the work required and only the work required, to complete the project successfully.
the features and functions that characterize a product, service, or results.
he work that needs to be accomplished to deliver a product, service, or result with the specified feature and functions
The completion of the project scope is measured against the project management plan
is used to provide the high-level project requirements and high-level products description of the project so that detailed products requirements can be developed.
bring together prequalified stakeholders and subject matter experts to learn about their expectations and attitudes about a proposed product, service, or results.
The Delphi technique
a selected group of experts answer questionnaires and provides feedback regarding the responses from each round of requirements gathering.
this technique allows large numbers of ideas to be sorted into groups for review and analysis.
everyone agrees on a single course of action.
the largest block in a group decision for the group.
are a method of obtaining early feedback on requirements by providing a working model of the expected product before actually building it. Prototypes are tangible.
Requirements traceability matrix
is a table that links requirements to their origin and traces them throughout the project life cycle. This will add business value by linking it to the business and project objectives.
provides the high-level project description and product characteristics. Also contains project approval requirements.
for projects that have a product as a deliverables, as opposed to a service or result, product analysis can be an effective tool.
is a technique used to generate different approaches to execute and perform the work of the project.
is the subdivision of project deliverables into smaller, more manageable components until the work and deliverables are defined to the work package level. The work package level is the lowest level in the WBS.
The WBS can be structured as an outline, an organizational chart, fishbone diagram, or other methods.
is a document generated by the create WBS process that supports the WBS.
Information in the WBS dictionary includes code of account identifier, description of work, responsible organization, etc. WBS defines each deliverables and the decomposition of the deliverables into work packages.
Project scope statement
includes the product scope description, the project deliverables and defines the product user acceptance criteria.
ncludes activities such as measuring, examining, and verifying to determine whether work and deliverables meet requirements and product acceptance criteria.
deliverables that meet the acceptance criteria are formally signed off and approved by the customer or sponsor.
Uncontrolled changes are often referred to as project scope creep.
project performance measurements are used to assess the magnitude of variation the original scope baselines. Important aspects of project scope control includes determining the cause and degree of variance relative to the scope baselines and deciding whether corrective or preventive action is required.
measures, compare, and analyze schedule performance such as actual start and finish dates, percent complete, and remaining duration for work in progress.
schedule variance analysis, along with review of progress report, results of performance measures, and modification to the project schedule can result in change request to the schedule baselines and to other components of the project management plane.
Project cost management
includes the processes involved in estimating, budgeting, controlling cost so that the project can be completed within the approved budget. Know the overview sheet
1 .most likely
Project human resource management
includes the processes that organize, manage, and lead the project team. The project team is comprised of the people with assigned roles and responsibilities for completing the project.
Project communication management
includes the processes required to ensure timely and appropriate generation, collection, distribution, storage, retrieval, and ultimate disposition of project information.
The total number of potential communication channels is n(n-1)/2 where n represents the number of stakeholders. Example with 10 stakeholders has 10(10-1)/2= 45
is the process of making relevant information available to project stakeholders as planned. It is performed throughout the entire project life cycle and in all management processes.
Manage stakeholders expectations
is the process of communication and working with stakeholders to meet their needs and addressing issues as they occur.
is the process of collecting and distributing performance information, including status reports, progress measurements, and forecasts.
Project risk management
includes the processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning, and monitoring and control on a project. The objectives of project risk management are to increase the probability and impact of positive events, and decrease the probability and impact of negative events in the project.
Perform qualitative risk analysis
is the process of prioritizing risks for further analysis or action by assessing and combining their probability of occurrence and impact. Organizations can improve the project’s performance by focusing on high-priority risk. Perform qualitative analysis assesses the priority of identified risks using their relative probability or likelihood of occurrence.
Risk probability and impact assessment
investigates the likelihood that each specific risk will occur. Risk impact assessment investigates the potential effect on a project objectives such as schedule, cost, quality, or performance, includes both negative effects for threats and positive effects for opportunities.
Causes of risk or project areas requiring particular attention
discovering concentrations of risk may improve the effectiveness of risk responses
List of risks requiring response in the near-team
those risks that require an urgent response and those that can be handle at a later date may be put into different groups.
List of risk for additional analysis and response
some risks might warrant more analysis, including quantitative risk analysis, as well as response action.
Perform quantitative risk analysis
is the process of numerically analyzing the effect of identified risks on overall project objectives. This is performed on risks that have been prioritized by perform qualitative risk analysis process as potentially and substantially impacting the project’s competing demands.
ontinuous probability distributions used extensively in modeling and simulation represent the uncertainty in values such as durations of schedule activities and costs of project components. Discrete distributions can be used to represent uncertain events such as the outcome of a test or a possible scenario in a decision tree.
this helps to determine which risks have the most potential impact on the project. It examines the extent to which the uncertainty of each project element affects the objective being examined when all other uncertain elements are held at their baselines values. One typical display is the tornado diagram.
Expected monetary value analysis
is a statistical concept that calculates the average outcome when the future includes scenarios that may or may not happen. The expected monetary value analysis of opportunities will generally be expressed as positive values, while those of risks will be negative. A common use of this type of analysis is in the decision tree analysis.
Modeling and simulation
a project simulation uses a model that translates the specified detailed uncertainties of the project into their potential impact on project objectives. The simulations are typically performed using the Monte Carlo technique.
Risk register updates
this is updated a quantitative risk report detailing quantitative approaches, outputs, and recommendations.
Plan risk responses
are the process of developing options and actions to enhance opportunities and to reduce threats to project objectives. It follows the perform qualitative risk analysis process and the preform quantitative risk analysis process.
Project procurement management
includes the processes necessary to purchase or aquire products, services, or results needed from outside the project team.
the process of documenting project purchasing decisions, specifying the approach, and identifying potential sellers
the process of obtaining seller responses, selecting a seller, and awarding a contract.
the process of managing procurements relationships, monitoring contact performance, and making changes and corrections as needed.
the process of completing each project procurements.
is the process of obtaining seller responses, selecting a seller, and awarding a contract. In this process the team will receive bids or proposals and will apply previously defined selection criteria to select one or more sellers who are qualified to perform the work and acceptable as a seller. A short list of qualified sellers can be established based on a preliminary proposal.
is the process of managing procurements relationships, monitoring contract performance, and making changes and corrections as needed. Both the buyer and seller will administer the procurement contract for similar purposes.
contract change control system
a contract change control system defines the process by which the procurements can be modified. It includes paper work, tacking systems, dispute resolution procedures, and approval levels necessary for authorizing changes. The contract change control system is integrated with the integrated change control system.
Procurements performance reviews
s a structure review of the seller’s progress to deliver project scope and quality, within cost and on schedule, as compared to the contract
is the process of completion each project procurement. It supports that close project or phase process, since it involves verification that all work and deliverables were accepted. This involves administrative activities such as finalizing open claims, updating records to reflect final results and archiving such information for future use.
