I must've spent at least 5 minutes breaking this question down and through process of elimination I got to the correct answer. The question disguises Issue Logs as part of risk. What made it more difficult was how the question specifies the specific process group. My question is: 1) With regards to how PMI wants us to view Issue Logs, in which exact process and process group are issues in the Issue Log handled/resolved? According to the PMBOK the Issue Log is an input to Control Stakeholder Engagement (Monitor and Control), Manage Project Team (Execute) and Control Communications (Monitor and Control). The question above implies that resolution is done in Monitor and Control but Manage Project Team specifies Conflict Management as a tool and technique. Sorry for the curve ball question. I want to make sure I cover as much as I can so I wont encounter any surprises during the exam.
