Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

Of the choices given, only the infrastructure is an enterprise environmental factor for the Plan Scope Management process, along with the organization’s culture, personnel administration, and marketplace conditions. Examples of internal infrastructure are facilities and capital equipment.

The organizational process assets that can influence the Plan Scope Management process include, but are not limited to, policies and procedures, and historical information and lessons learned knowledge base.


Details for each option:

A. Historical information
Incorrect. Policies are organizational process assets that influence the Plan Scope Management process. For example, your organizational policies may provide guidance on how a work breakdown structure should reflect departmental accounts.

B. Infrastructure
Correct. Infrastructure is not considered an organizational process asset. The PMI considers the infrastructure to be an enterprise environmental factor that is outside the control of the project team.

C. Lessons learned
Incorrect. Lessons learned are organizational process assets that influence the Plan Scope Management process.

D. Historical information
Incorrect. Historical information, particularly concerning previous similar projects, is an organizational process asset that influences the Plan Scope Management process.
