The Role of Scope Baseline in Quality Planning
According to PMI® standards, Scope Baseline, an output from the important process 6. Create Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), is a synthesis of the Project Scope Statement, the WBS, and the WBS dictionary.
On the other hand, according to the same PMI® standards, process 14. Plan Quality requires the Scope Baseline as an input amongst others.
The Scope Baseline therefore establishes an output/input link between the two processes: Create WBS and Plan Quality.
Questions: Is this link between the two processes justified? If so, what is the best way to explain the role of the Scope Baseline in Quality Planning?
