John is managing a project.The project is about three fourths done when the site engineer reports that due to inherent complexities in a certain task the deliverables would get delayed.This would involve additional analysis and then implementation.He requests that this new work that was not envisioned earlier be added to the scope and also the time required be added to the schedule.You and the site engineer have analyzed the impact of this change to cost, and have written up a change request and requested approval from change control board.Just today you have received approval from the change control board - what should be the immediate course of action ?
Correct Answer : D
As the change has been approved you should always update the baseline ( in this case the scope and schedule baseline) before implementing the change.This will ensure that you track performance against the new scope and schedule and not the old benchmarks.
