Work performance information

Postby umeshbww Thu Sep 18, 2014 6:21 pm

A project team has recently computed the project's current schedule and cost performance indices. They have also calculated the new estimate to complete and the TCPI based on the new estimate at completion. The project key stakeholders are not fully aware of the earned value management process. These measures in this case are an example of?

A. Work performance data
B. Lessons learned
C. Work performance information
D. Learning curve for the stakeholders

Explanation/Answer : A - The scenario gives a situation where the project team has calculated some measures that need to be transformed into a format that the project stakeholders might understand. These measures are work performance data for this project. Work performance information is always in a format that can be easily understood by the project stakeholders. This is clearly neither an example of lessons learned nor is it an example of a learning curve for the stakeholders. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 411]

Question is from Scordo and answer mentioned is A. But I am confident that this is WPI (not WPD). Although explanation given is quite confusing. Can someone comment please.

Hi Umesh,

As per the PMBOK Guide, the work performance information is “the performance data collected from various controlling processes, analyzed in context and integrated based on relationships across areas; e.g. status of deliverables, and forecasted estimates to complete.

However work performance data is “the raw observations and measurements identified during activities performed to carry out the project work; e.g. actual cost, actual duration, and percent of work physically completed.”

In the question they have mentioned they have calculated the new Estimate to Complete (which is forecasting)

Hence I too agree C should be the correct choice.
