1. What is the primary value of establishing clear project boundaries?
Project boundaries eliminate scope creep.
Project boundaries determine where the project team will be located and where team meetings are held.
Project team and stakeholders agree on project focus and direction.
2. When in the project lifecycle are project boundaries determined?
At the time of project initiation.
When the project completes and the results are known.
At the time of project planning.
3. What is a common best practice used to set the project boundaries?
Project boundaries are extracted from the project requirements documents.
What? Why? Who? When? Where? How? questions with stakeholders.
The project team conducts a brainstorming session and uses the outputs as project boundaries.
4. If while determining the project boundaries you find that you will be using a co-located development team, is that an answer to the “Who,” “Where,” or “How” question?
It doesn’t matter, the goal is to identify boundaries, not put them in categories.
The boundary should be listed in the “Who” category because “Resources” is one of the three sides of the project triple constraint triangle.
This boundary condition must be listed in all three categories.
