Hello everyone! Here is this week's free PMP® exam sample question from the PM Exam Simulator.

You are part of a cross-functional organizational development team, piloting an adaptive approach to project management in an organization that has traditionally used a predictive approach. You realize that you have to tailor the template of the schedule management plan. Which of the following components of the template are you likely to tailor the most?

A. The rules of performance measurement, the summary milestones, and the key deliverables
B. The organizational procedures links, the units of measure, and the project organization charts
C. The schedule model development, the release and iteration length, and the reporting formats
D. The project schedule model maintenance, the level of accuracy, and the level of precision

HINT: To eliminate some choices, look for items that are not actually components of the schedule management plan.

All our questions are updated to the latest A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) standard. Stop by at free.pm-exam-simulator.com/ and try the PM Exam Simulator free for 7 days. We are a Project Management Institute (PMI)® Registered Education Provider.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

The question suggests you are carrying out the Plan Schedule Management process. The schedule management plan is the primary output of this process. The schedule management plan establishes the criteria and the activities for developing, monitoring, and controlling the schedule. Of all the choices presented, only the schedule model development, the release and iteration length, and the reporting formats are all components of the schedule management plan. All three of these components would merit significant tailoring to reflect an adaptive approach to project management. The project schedule model development specifies the scheduling methodology and the scheduling tool used to develop the schedule model. For this adaptive approach, the schedule model will be a selected series of activities needed to complete a high-priority subset of the project scope that can deliver value quickly. The release and iteration length determine the time-boxed events that must be completed and how long it will take to release the iteration. The reporting formats will be driven by the adaptive schedule model and the iteration length.

The other answer choices contain components that are not part of the schedule management plan making those choices incorrect answers.

Details for each option:

A. The rules of performance measurement, the summary milestones, and the key deliverables
Incorrect. Only the rules of performance measurement are a component of the schedule management plan. Since the summary milestones and the key deliverables are components of a project charter, this choice is an incorrect answer.

B. The organizational procedures links, the units of measure, and the project organization charts
Incorrect. Only the organizational procedures links and units of measure are components of the schedule management plan. The project organization charts are part of the resource management plan, making this choice an incorrect answer.

C. The schedule model development, the release and iteration length, and the reporting formats
Correct. The three components listed in this answer choice are all part of the schedule management plan and are the most likely candidates to be tailored to the adaptive approach, making this choice the best answer to the question asked.

D. The project schedule model maintenance, the level of accuracy, and the level of precision
Incorrect. While project schedule model maintenance and level of accuracy are components of the schedule management plan, the level of precision is a component of the cost management plan. Therefore, this choice is not the best answer to the question asked.
