PMP micro learning videos Series - PMP Free Question 32: Project Schedule

Postby jyotimayank Wed May 01, 2019 1:50 pm

The Project Manager is working with stakeholders for identifying requirements; one of the stakeholders asks to share the project schedule. What should the project manager do?

A. Explain that Project Schedule gets prepared after scope baseline
B. Share the project charter since it has the broad timelines
C. Prepare the schedule if not done already and share.
D. Share the Work Breakdown Structure

Let us look at the core question; do you have a schedule before having the requirements?

The work for schedule preparation starts with a process called Define Activities, and you do see Scope baseline as an input to this process. Does this mean Define Activity can only happen when you have a scope baseline?

PMBOK Guide Sixth Edition defines Define Activities
"Define Activities is the process of identifying and documenting the specific actions to be performed to produce the project deliverables.”

It’s a misconception that schedule gets prepared after scope baseline. We also need a schedule for planning and executing activities leading to the scope baseline.
