Answer and Explanation
The correct answer is D.

The scenario describes the development of the project scope statement, which is an output of the Define Scope process. The project scope statement is the description of the project scope, major deliverables, assumptions, and constraints. The entire scope, including project and product scope, is documented in the scope statement. The detailed project scope statement includes the following:

Product scope description, which progressively elaborates on the characteristics of the product, service, or results described in the project charter and requirements documentation.

Deliverables that describe any unique and verifiable product, result, or capability to perform a service that is required to be produced to complete a process, phase, or project.

Acceptance criteria are a set of conditions that are required to be met before deliverables are accepted.

Project exclusions which explicitly identify what is excluded from the project.

The product scope description is missing from the list of details you have included in the scope statement. Therefore, of the available choices, including product scope description, or in other words, describing product scope is what you should do next.

Details for each option:

A. Obtain approval of the project scope statement
Incorrect. The project scope statement is the description of the project scope, major deliverables, assumptions, and constraints. The scenario implies the project scope statement has not yet been completed; therefore, obtaining its approval is a premature action.

B. Include the acceptance criteria in the scope statement
Incorrect. The acceptance criteria are a set of conditions that are required to be met before the deliverables are accepted. According to the scenario, you have already included the acceptance criteria in the scope statement.

C. Determine who decides the project is successful
Incorrect. The determination of who decides the project is successful is part of the project approval requirements, which are specified in the project charter. According to the scenario, the project is in planning, suggesting the project charter has already been approved, and the determination of who decides the project is successful has been made.

D. Describe product scope in the scope statement
Correct. The product scope description is an element of the project scope statement that progressively elaborates on the characteristics of the product described in the project charter and requirements documentation. In the scenario provided, all the other elements of the project scope statement are included except the product scope description, making this choice the best answer to the question asked.
