Which of the following is most likely to have caused the misinterpretation of the project scope statement?

  1. PMP Solution 21

    Because of ¨You have seen some of the resurfaced road that is completed, with the new lines painted on them.¨¨, it means much of the work on the project is dictated by the project scope statement. Any imprecision in such a key document is leading to differing interpretations. On the other hand, any variations in size of work packages or detail of work, it would also be included in the project scope statement. Therefore the right answer is A. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 154] [Project Scope Management].

    Cheers
