Re: Projet manager influencing factors causing change

Manish sir,

In PMBOK and also in Rita and Headfirst i think they advise that PM should influence the factors that bring about change, isn't it?

Re: Rita Book conflict on Definition as compared to PMBOK

Dont know about Rita but the definition given in PMBOK is logically correct and hence i would go with it.

Manish can probably explain the difference.

Re: What to do when quality review finds quality issues?

I would go with D. The reason is that scenario states that quality problems are on rise. PM's primary responsibility is to ensure that he proactively looks for issues and ensure that quality problems dont come up in UAT
