100 % rule

Postby Housam Bassal Sun Feb 05, 2017 3:33 pm

WBS is considered to be one of the most critical document for the team. It is deliverable based and it makes the job of the project manager easy to assign the work to the team. It is also known as 100% scope and it is considered to be foundation for most of the items. However, what is the exception to this rule?

A: Project Communications
B: Project Procurement
C: Estimating the cost
D: Identifying the risk

The WBS represents all product and project work, including the project management work. The total of the work
at the lowest levels should roll up to the higher levels so that nothing is left out and no extra work is performed.
This is sometimes called the 100 percent rule.(PMBOK,P;131)


what is the correct answer?

As far I know there is no stated exception mentioned by PMI either in PMBOK or WBS guide

A: Project Communications
B: Project Procurement
C: Estimating the cost
D: Identifying the risk

they all are included in WBS in some form of other, would be interesting to know the answer and justification
