Scope of project

This article may need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia’s quality scope of project. In project management, the term scope has two distinct uses: Project Scope and Product Scope.

Scope involves getting information required to start a project, and the features the product would have that would meet its stakeholders requirements. Project Scope: «The work that needs to be accomplished to deliver a product, service, or result with the specified features and functions. Product Scope: «The features and functions that characterize a product, service, or result. If requirements aren’t completely defined and described and if there is no effective change control in a project, scope or requirement creep may ensue. Scope Management is the listing of the items to be produced or tasks to be done to the required quantity, quality and variety, in the time and with the resources available and agreed upon, and the modification of those variable constraints by dynamic flexible juggling in the event of changed circumstance called as Scope creep.

The Scope Statement is an essential element of any project. Project managers use the Scope Statement as a written confirmation of the results your project will produce and the constraints and assumptions under which you will work. Both the people who requested the project and the project team should agree to all terms in the Scope Statement before actual project work begins. Justification: A brief statement regarding the business need your project addresses. A more detailed discussion of the justification for the project appears in the project charter.

Acceptance criteria: The conditions that must be met before project deliverables are accepted. Project Exclusions: Statements about what the project will not accomplish or produce. Constraints: Restrictions that limit what you can achieve, how and when you can achieve it, and how much achieving it can cost. Assumptions: Statements about how you will address uncertain information as you conceive, plan, and perform your project.

You and your team commit to producing certain results. Your project’s requesters commit that they’ll consider your project 100 percent successful if you produce these results. You and your team identify all restrictions regarding your approach to the work and the resources you need to support your work. Your project’s requesters agree that there are no restrictions other than the ones you’ve identified and that they’ll provide you the support you declare you need. You and your team identify all assumptions you made when setting the terms of your Scope Statement.
