The Project Scope Statement
The scope of a project is the clear identification of the work that is required to successfully complete or deliver a project. One of the our responsibilities is to ensure that only the required work (the scope) will be performed and that each of the deliverable s can be completed in the allotted time and within budget.
The documentation of the scope of the project will explain the boundaries of the project, establish the responsibilities of each member of the team, and set up procedures for how work that is completed will be verified and approved.
The planning process is when an attempt is made to capture and define the work that needs to be done.
The controlling and monitoring processes focus on documenting tracking, scope creep, tracking, and disapproving/approving project changes.
The final process, closing includes an audit of the project deliverable s and an assessment of the outcomes against the original plan.
