4 responses on "PMP Exam Question 127"

  1. PMP® Solution 127

    X B. Risk categories provide a means for grouping individual project risks.

    X C. Where a potential risk response has been identified during the Identify Risks process, it is recorded in the risk register. This will be confirmed during the Plan Risk Responses process.

    X D. The risk register captures details of identified individual project risks. The results of Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis, Plan Risk Responses, Implement Risk Responses, and Monitor Risks are recorded in the risk register as those processes are conducted throughout the project. The risk register may contain limited or extensive risk information depending on project variables such as size and complexity.

    A common way to structure risk categories is with a risk breakdown structure (RBS), which is a hierarchical representation of potential sources of risk (see example). The risk categories in the lowest level of the risk breakdown structure can be used as a prompt list for individual project risks. An RBS helps the project team consider the full range of sources from which individual project risks may arise. The organization may have a generic RBS to be used for all projects, or there may be several RBS frameworks for different types of projects, or the project may develop a tailored RBS. Where an RBS is not used, an organization may use a custom risk categorization framework, which may take the form of a simple list of categories or a structure based on project objectives. Therefore, right answer is A. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 405,416] [Project Risk Management]
