CLOSING A PROJECT
The Health and Safety Training Project is part of a strategic program for ABC. The updated benefits management approach needs to be checked when the products are being handed over. This check should ensure that it includes appropriate activities to assess whether the actual course sales meet the agreed forecast in the business case.
Which role should undertake this review as part of the 'closing a project' process?
After preparing the stage 3 plan, the project manager left the company. The project board has decided that, as the stage plan has been agreed, it will not appoint a project manager for stage 3. The team managers will report directly to the project board and will prepare highlight reports instead of checkpoint reports.
Is this an appropriate tailoring of the roles in the 'managing a stage boundary' process?
The project is approaching the end of stage 3, and stage 4 is being planned as part of the 'managing a stage boundary' process.
Which action should the project manager carry out as part of the 'update the project plan' activity?
MANAGING A STAGE BOUNDARY
The project is approaching the end of stage 3 and the pilot courses have been planned. The project manager is now undertaking the 'managing a stage boundary' process.
Which action should the project manager undertake as part of the 'update the business case' activity?
The work package to produce the 'updated corporate quality procedures' was created during stage 3. Before accepting the work package, the team manager produces the team plan and finds that the expected delivery date is unrealistic. As a result, the project manager agrees an extra two weeks to complete the work package, within the current stage tolerance. The work package is then accepted by the team manager.
Is this an appropriate application of the 'manage product delivery' process, and why?
