Monitoring and Controlling Process Group Process – Report Performance – Mind Map


Performance reports are key output for a project in which periodic collection and analysis of expected Vs. actual data is conducted. Report performance is used to communicate the project progress throughout the entire project life cycle to ensure the information needs of project stakeholders are met. Report performance is having tight bonding with Integration Knowledge Area to make sure project is moving in a direction towards achieving its goals.

Develop Project Management Plan  –> Project Management Plan –-> Input to Report Performance

Direct and Manage Project Execution –-> Work Performance Information –-> Input to Report Performance

Monitor and Control Project Work <— Performance Reports <— Output from Report Performance

Perform Integrated Change Control <— Change Requests <— Output from Report Performance

Control scope, cost, schedule – all will give work performance measurements as inputs to performance report. Also, performance reports are important input in managing project team & distributing information regarding project progress. Performance reports vary the level of its detail based on the audience from a simple status report to more elaborate reports with forecasts and risks for upper management.

Report performance is part of Communications Knowledge Area. As usual, I tried putting as much information as possible in each branch in this process map to bring out completeness to it. Hope this will be useful to you.

Plan Procurement Management – Types of Contracts – Mind Map


Procurement management is one of the toughest Knowledge Area for a Product Development Manager like me. This is due to the fact that I don’t deal with contracts so often. I tried reading lot of material & went through many articles regarding contractual agreements before I can really understand it some extent. In this Mind Map, I put general information about commonly used contract types.

I hope this will help you in preparing your PMP exams.

Monitoring and Controlling Process Group Process – Verify Scope


Scope verification is a formal process for deliverable acceptance. This process comes under Scope Management Knowledge Area. There is a bit of difference between Scope verification and Quality Control process.

Scope verification – deals with acceptance of deliverable

Quality control – deals with correctness of the deliverable & meeting the quality requirements specified for the deliverable.

Generally, Quality control is performed before scope verification or can be in parallel with scope verification.

Below is the Mind Map of Verify scope process. I tried putting as much information as possible in each branch in this process map to bring out completeness to it. Hope this will be useful to you.

Planning Process Group Process – Define Scope


Define scope is second Scope Management Knowledge Area process in Planning Process Group. For any project scope definition is an important & mandatory step. All the work & only the work that is scoped as part of scope statement is performed in the project. All others requirements outside the scope statement is considered as Scope Creep (change of scope) which will be avoided for project success (which may not be true in practical scenario). Here is the mind map for “Define Scope” process.
