Control Schedule

Postby nazrulq Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:27 pm

Question: Control Schedule is the process of monitoring the status of the project to update project progress and managing changes to the schedule baseline. During this process, you undertake various activities that allow you to identify any changes or potential changes to the project schedule. In this context, which of the following is NOT true about the Control Schedule process?

1 Project manager determines the current status of the project schedule
2 Project manager influences the factors that create schedule changes
3 Project manager takes the anticipated changes through the change control process.
4 Project manager manages the actual schedule changes as they occur

What could be the possible answer!

My Opinion :2

I will go with Option 3. Project manager takes the anticipated changes through the change control process.

The question is asking NOT true. The project manager takes the anticipated changes through the change control process. I think he is NOT influencing changes! He is just pursuing changes through change control board if they occur!

Please Clarify!

I hope I can help here.... The best answer is 3, why, right?
The questions seeks to answer the option that is not true. Option 3 suggests that the controlling process is proactive " Project manager takes the anticipated changes through the change control process." This function is actually right for the planning process (Plan Schedule Management).
