Answer and Explanation
The correct answer is A.

The question suggests that the Plan Quality Management process was performed, and an element of this process was missed. Quality metrics are a project document that serves as one of the outputs of the Plan Quality Management process. This document was not mentioned in the scenario. All of the other outputs are stated as being completed. A quality metric, an input to the Manage Quality and Control Quality processes, specifically describes a project or product attribute and how these processes will verify compliance with it. Therefore, quality metrics are what was most likely missed by the project team.

One may argue that quality metrics should be part of the quality management plan just like the quality roles and responsibilities. While this may sound counter-intuitive, the <em>PMBOK<sup>®</sup> Guide</em> describes quality metrics as a separate standalone document. The complete list of the components of the project management plan vs. project documents can be found on page 89, Table 4-1. Project Management Plan and Project Documents.

Details for each option:

A. Determine quality metrics
Correct. A quality metric specifically describes a project or product attribute and how the Manage Quality and Control Quality processes will verify compliance with it. Quality metrics are an output of the Plan Quality Management process and were not stated as being completed. Therefore, the quality metrics are what were most likely missed by the project team.


B. Define quality roles and responsibilities
Incorrect. Determining quality roles and responsibilities is a key component of the quality management plan. The question indicates that the quality management plan has been developed. Therefore, this element was not missed by the project team.

C. Revise the lessons learned register
Incorrect. The lessons learned register is a project document that may be updated as part of the Plan Quality Management process. The question states that all project documents were updated (revised).

D. Update the requirements traceability matrix
Incorrect. The requirements traceability matrix is a project document that may be updated during the Plan Quality Management process. The scenario indicates that all project documents were updated. Therefore, this answer choice can be eliminated.
