PMP Exam Prep Question of the Week

What is the function of the requirements traceability matrix?

  1. It helps to ensure that identified and agreed requirements add business value by linking them to business and project objectives.
  2. It helps to ensure that identified and agreed requirements are in compliance with the SOW (statement of work).
  3. It helps to ensure that identified and agreed requirements do not add to the duration of the project.
  4. It helps ensure that requirements are consistent with the organizational quality policy.

 

The correct answer is 1.

It helps to ensure that identified and agreed requirements add business value by linking them to business and project objectives is correct because the requirements traceability matrix is an output of the Collect Requirements process and is focused on ensuring that the requirements identified and agreed to are the correct requirements for the project and the purpose for which the project was undertaken. The requirements traceability matrix does not address issues of compliance, timing, or organizational quality.
