Answer and Explanation

The correct answer is A

Establishing the criteria and the activities for developing, monitoring, and controlling the schedule is the main purpose of developing the schedule management plan which is the primary output of the Plan Schedule Management process. To develop this plan, four inputs are required: project charter, project management plan, enterprise environmental factors (EEFs), and organizational process assets (OPAs). The project charter and the project management plan are explicitly called out in the correct answer choice, whereas the EEFs and the OPAs are represented by the estimation databases and PMO templates correspondingly. Therefore, of the available options, the charter, the project management plan, estimation databases, and PMO templates represent the best answer to the question asked.


Details for each option:

A. The charter, the project management plan, estimation databases, and PMO templates
Correct. The scenario suggests you are performing the Plan Schedule Management process. The charter, the project management plan, estimation databases, and PMO templates are among the inputs to this process. The last two items are examples of EEFs and OPAs, respectively.

B. Government standards, assumption log, schedule management plan, and the milestone list
Incorrect. Government standards (part of the EEFs), assumption log, schedule management plan, and the milestone list are among the inputs to the Sequence Activities process. According to the question text, you are still in the Plan Schedule Management process.


C. The resource breakdown structure, the lessons learned register, and scheduling methodology
Incorrect. The resource breakdown structure, the lessons learned register, and scheduling methodology (part of the OPAs) are among the inputs to the Estimate Activity Durations process. They are not inputs to the Plan Schedule Management process implied by the scenario.


D. The project scope statement, the risk register, and the project team assignments
Incorrect. The project scope statement (part of the scope baseline), the risk register, and the project team assignments are among the inputs to the Develop Schedule process, while the scenario suggests you are performing the Plan Schedule Management process.

Can you please explain the reasoning behind choosing the process " Plan Schedule Management process."? According to me project manager is looking for "reward and recognition" that comes under "Develop team" process of Resource management.

I was thinking the same thing. Can someone clarify and how schedule planning is relevant to recognizing a team member’s efforts?

I also thought so. It's develop team process.. the question suggests here that the team member recognition so far in the project means it's in execution stage. The choice mentioned is no way related to the question asked..

I have worked on many projects and programs at the leadership level and have never seen a formal recognition process in any project plan. However, for the humor of PMI and the PMP exam, the only place to document the criteria and how a recognition program would be administered within a project is in the Resource Management Plan. In this case, not only are the answers not correct, but the question is misleading also. This is one scenario that I do not believe you will see on the exam.

Questions like these may lead to lack of credibility of a platform like PMPrepCast! I am shocked at this question as well as the unimaginable justification of the answer! Wish Cornelius is reviewing these!
