I found this question in one of the practice tests. But answer doesn't look justified.
Please help me with the answer:
You are a project manager for Shaaron Project Management Consulting Private Limited, You are working late into the evening with the project team to finish a deliverable and meet the scheduled completion date. The team closes in on completion when an error is discovered. Fixing the error will actually cause a change in scope. You know that scope changes require approval of the CCB, but if you don’t give the team the go-ahead to fix this error, this deliverable will be late. Which of the following actions do you take? Choose the best answer.
A. All scope changes require approval of the CCB. You inform your team to stop working until you can get the CCB to approve or deny the change.
B. The change control system gives you the authority to approve emergency changes. Since this is an emergency and your authority to approve the decision is documented, you decide to tell the team to fix the error.
C. The change control system documents the procedures for approving change requests. Since there are no procedures documented in your change control system for emergencies, you inform the team to stop working until you can get the CCB to approve or deny the change.
D. The change control system documents the procedures for approving change requests. There are no procedures documented in your change control system for emergencies. But you know that time is the primary constraint for this project, so you decide to approve the change yourself and tell the team to fix the error. You will inform the CCB at the next meeting of the change.
Answer : B
A proper change control system documents the procedures a project manager can use to approve changes in an emergency. Answer B states that this procedure is documented, so you have the authority to approve the change.
