A project manager has just taken over the project from another project manager during the executing process group. The previous project manager created a project budget, determined communications requirements, and went on to complete work packages. What should the new project manager do NEXT?
A. Coordinate completion of work packages.
B. Identify quality standards.
C. Begin the Identify Risk process.
D. Execute the project management plan.
Answer: B
Performance of work packages (choice A) is done after project planning. Since the previous project manager did not finish planning, choice D should not be next.
