Hello,

In going over the Create WBS Process, I noticed that the Project Scope Statement is not only an output of the Define Scope Process, but also it is an input AND an output of the Create WBS Process. I would understand it being an output if the output was "updated project scope statement," but that is not the case. I am not understanding how the scope statement in itself can be both an input and an output of the Create WBS Process.

Can someone shed some light on this for me? What am I missing?

Hi Kayla,

The Project Scope Statement is an input of the Create WBS process, but it is NOT an output of that process.
Please check in your PMBOK, 5.4. Create WBS, on page 156.
