PMBOK Definitions: Processes And Process Groups

  • Answer 45 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. <Process Group> - Those processes performed to define a new project or a new phase of an existing project by obtaining authorization to start the project or phase.

2. The process of aggregating the estimated costs of individual activities or work packages to establish an authorized cost baseline.

3. The process of identifying quality requirements and/or standards for the project and product - and documenting how the project will demonstrate compliance.

4. The process of analyzing activity sequences - durations - resource requirements - and schedule constraints to create the project schedule.

5. <Process Group> - Those processes performed to complete the work defined in the project management plan to satisfy the project objectives.

6. The process of developing options and actions to enhance opportunities and to reduce threats to project objectives.

7. The process of tracking team member performance - providing feedback - resolving issues - and managing changes to optimize project performance.

8. The process of numerically analyzing the effect of identified risks on overall project objectives.

9. The process of developing an approximation of the monetary resources needed to complete project activities.

10. The process of prioritizing risks for further analysis or action by assessing and combining their probability of occurance and impact.

11. <Process Group> - Those processes required to track - review - and regulate the progress and performance of the project - identify any areas in which changes to the plan are required - and initiate the corresponding changes.

12. The process of defining how to conduct risk management activities for a project.

13. The process of estimating the type and quantities of material - people - equipment or supplies required to perform each activity.

14. <Process Group> - Those processes performed to finalize all activities across all Project Management Process Groups to formally close the project or phase.

15. The process of identifying and documenting project roles - responsibilities - and required skills - reporting relationships - and creating a staffing management plan.

16. The process of managing procurement relationships - monitoring contract performance - and making changes and corrections as needed.

17. The process of confirming human resource availability and obtaining the team necessary to complete project assignments.

18. The process of identifying all people or organizations impacted by the project - and documenting relevant information regarding their interests - involvement - and impact on project success.

19. The process of identifying the specific actions to be performed to produce the project deliverables.

20. The process of reviewing all change requests - approving changes - and making changes to the deliverables - organizational process assets - project documents - and project management plan.

21. The process of collecting and distributing performance information - including status reports - progress measurements - and forecasts.

22. The process of communicating and working with stakeholders to meet their needs and addressing issues as they occur.

23. The process of monitoring the status of the project to update the project budget and managing changes to the cost baseline.

24. The process of making relevant information available to project stakeholders as planned.

25. The process of developing a document that formally authorizes a project or a phase and documenting initial requirements that satisfy the stakeholder's needs and expectations.

26. Collect Requirements is the process of defining and documenting stakeholders' needs to meet the project objectives.

27. The process of developing a detailed description of the project and product.

28. The process of completing each project procurement.

29. The process of documenting the actions necessary to define - prepare - integrate - and coordinate all subsidiary plans.

30. The process of documenting project purchasing decisions - specifying the approach - and identifying potential sellers.

31. The process of formalizing acceptance of the completed project deliverables.

32. <Process Group> - Those processes performed to establish the total scope of the effort - define and refine the objectives - and develop the course of action required to attain those objectives.

33. The process of subdividing project deliverables and project work into smaller - more manageable components.

34. The process of approximating the number of work periods needed to complete individual activities with estimated resources.

35. The process of identifying and documenting relationships among the project activities.

36. The process of obtaining seller responses - selecting a seller - and awarding a contract.

37. The process of monitoring the status of the project to update project progress and managing changes to the schedule baseline.

38. The process of improving the competencies - team interaction - and the overall team environment to enhance project performance.

39. The process of determining project stakeholder information needs and defining a communication approach.

40. The process of tracking - reviewing - and regulating the progress to meet the performance objectives defined in the project management plan.

41. The process of auditing the quality requirements and the results from quality control measurements to ensure appropriate quality standards and operational definitions are used.

42. The process of determing which risks may affest the project and documenting their characteristics.

43. The process of performing the work defined in the project management plan to achieve the project's objectives.

44. The process of implementing risk response plans - tracking identified risks - monitoring residual risks - indentifying new risks and evaluating risk process throughout the project.

45. The process of monitoring and recording results of executing the quality activities to assess performance and recommend necessary changes.
