Resource Mgmt

Postby KaurP Sat Jul 28, 2018 10:08 am

Hi Manish,

Which statement is correct about human resource management plan?
HR plan specified how resources will be utilized
HR plan specifies how resource will be assigned Marked correct
HR plan specifies how communication flows
HR plan specifies how Stakeholder management happens

Explanation:
According to the new examination content outline, "assigned" replaces "utilized." Option (c) and (d) are part of the communication and stakeholder management plans respectively.

PMBOK 6 definition-
Plan Resource Management is the process of defining how to estimate, acquire, manage, and utilize physical and team resources.

PMP Examination Content Outline-
Develop the human resource management plan by defining the roles and
responsibilities of the project team members in order to create a project
organizational structure and provide guidance regarding how resources will
be assigned and managed


Words specified in PMBOK and Content outline are different in context to the given question.
Please share your views on this question and its explanation.

Thanks!

we dont have human resource management plan anymore n PMBOK6

resource management plan mentions how resources in the project will be estimated, acquired, managed and used/utilized.

if this is Izenbridge question it has to be rectified

This is not izenbridge question.

By Human Resource Mgmt Plan in question we mean 'Resource Mgmt Plan' as the name has been modified now.

By your reply it seems option 1 should be the correct answer of this question-

HR plan specified how resources will be utilized. - as per PMBOK 6

Answer to the question has been marked as-

HR plan specifies how resource will be assigned. - As per PMP Examination Content Outline

So, should we go with PMBOK definition or PMP Examination Content Outline?

As per PMI, there is no change in PMP Examination Content Outline since 2015 however there are still a few things which do not match between PMBOK 6 and the Content or create confusion, which have been noticed while attempting some question online.
