I call it glossary question, which mean checking how well you understand a definition of term, do not worry much about such questions.

"Performance Reviews. A technique that is used to measure, compare, and analyze actual performance of work in progress on the project against the baseline. " - PMBOK Guide Sixth Edition

I have not seen Change Register as a term, I can't find it in PMBOK 6 or PMBOK 7 :-) , in general if you see it in some question I may treat it as wrong option or as a substitute to change log.

Hi Saket, i dont understand the below question, please help

A hybrid municipal waste management project combines many brief administrative tasks with small-scale public works. An agile track makes good progress on key objectives, but small tasks are accumulating in the backlog. Most tasks can be done in one day but are dependent on unpredictable triggering events.

Which approach would be most effective to clear out these minor tasks faster?

-Combine multiple minor tasks to make story sizes consistent with key objectives
-Re prioritize the backlog to favor the smallest stories and re-assign them daily
- Reprioritize the backlog on a daily basis so that recent triggers boost story priority
- Integrate the small tasks to either the Definition of Done or acceptance criteria

Hi Saket,

Please help in understanding the below:
An emergency vaccine roll-out project should deploy vaccination centers as soon as pre-vetted locations are booked. Fast-changing factors such as delayed batch shipments, safety protocols, and target age groups may block the deployment at the last minute. However, the deployment process does not vary after passing the tollgate to begin setup at a new location.

Which project approach would best support the goal to maximize the number of centers deployed?


A fully predictive life cycle where each center deployment is a phase subject to dependencies.

A set of agile deployment iterations embedded in a predictive set of processes.

A set of predictive deployment sequences embedded in an agile set of processes.

A fully agile life cycle where dependencies and deployments are combined in each iteration.

Hello Saket,

Could you please help me in understanding the below query:
A worldwide product launch will likely be delayed by the lengthy analysis needed to assess the impact of new European Union (EU) regulations. Perishable ingredients and factory bookings would be lost. The executive committee decides to postpone the launch in the EU, but maintain launch dates in all non-EU countries.

How should the project manager re-plan the project to support both launches?


Use the contingency budget to cover sunken costs for the EU launch and adjust plans for the non-EU launch.

Re-plan the project as a fully agile set of iterations and ensure that fixed milestones are documented on the burn-down chart.

Plan analysis activities and tollgates for the EU launch and crash the schedule for the non-EU launch

Embed a set of iterations to analyze and develop the EU product, while adjusting plans for the non-EU launch.
