Project cancellation

Postby KaurP Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:22 pm

Hi Manish,

Please help me with this question-

You were promoted as a project manager because you were a best performer of your team. You took over a project midway as the previously assigned project manager resigned without any prior notice. While you were in the process of getting familiar with the project ,sponsor informed you that due to lack of funds they will have to cancel this ongoing project and asked you to do the needful. You know that now you need to move to closing phase however do not know what all activities need to be performed in regards to terminated project and its overall closure. Where can you get this information?

A. Project charter
B. Project Management Plan
C. Close Project or Phase
D. Business Case

PMBOK6-
''The Close Project or Phase process also establishes the procedures to investigate and document the reasons for actions taken if a project is terminated before completion.''

Are procedures to be followed (what to do) if project is terminated not pre-defined in Project Management Plan?

My opinion: answer is 'B'

A. Project charter - This is for initiation and detailed closure procedures not included
B. Project Management Plan - PROJECT MGMT PLAN AND IT'S SUBSIDIARY PLAN INCLUDE EVERY STEP YOU NEED TO TAKE
C. Close Project or Phase - This is not a document, only the name of process
D. Business Case - This includes only the reason why this project is needed
