  1. PMP Solution 111

    A. Before informing stakeholders, risks should be analyzed and assessed. Monitoring Risks process should be based on the implementation of agreed-upon risk response plans, tracking identified risks and evaluating risk process effectiveness throughout the project.
    B. Before the baselines are established, changes are not required to be formally controlled by the Perform Integrated Change Control process. In this case, he is developing the schedule model which has not been approved yet.
    C. Before informing stakeholders, risks should be analyzed and assessed. Schedule reserves may help to mitigate the risk reducing the probability of ocurrence and impact of the threat.
    Assessing the need to aggregate schedule reserves to reduce the probability of a schedule slip when multiple paths converge at a single point in time or when multiple paths diverge from a single point in time, to reduce the probability of a schedule slip. Therefore, right answer is D. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 209] [Project Schedule Management]
