Change Request!

Postby nazrulq Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:29 pm

If changes are approved by CCB but rejected by sponsor, in that case baselines is needed to be updated! As there is a rejection. No need for updation. CCB approved does n't mean baselines need to be updates! CCB's approvals for changes are not final! :o
I think, Izenbridge Webinar missed that point ! Now a days questions are really confusing!

Can Manish or Saket Clarify Please!

there is usually not 2 levels of approval for CRs
usually sponsor is part of CCB
if CCB approves that usually change is considered as approved
Of course exception can be if mentioned in Project management plan thta after CCB the sponsor also needs to approve the change

Manish,

If we consider exception that Sponsor is not part of CCB and after CCB approval changes get rejected by sponsor, in that changes get rejected finally i think. Hence not need to update any doc neither baseline nor other document.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Yes if we go purely basis of what is in PMBOK, Option D seems to be correct option, however project lessons learnt is usually part of the project closure report as well
If I have to chose I would chose option B as cost variance summary is in closure report not details about cost variance

Hi Manish and Vijay kannan,

Please could you explain,why lesson learned details(D) are not part of the final report and why summary level description of project performace(A) needs in a final report.


Thanks,

This is a recommendation in PMBOK, and as i have said, PMBOK is framework and not rule book, in my view lessons learnt (at least summary of it) should be in final report.
Also note that such questions which challenges you to memorize ITTOs are rare in exam , maybe 1-3


Thanks,
Viswanathan Raju
