Controlling the Project Scope

Once the project scope statement has been created, it is paramount to guard the scope from unauthorized changes and to follow a scope change control system within the project to ensure that any approved changes reflect the changes through cost, time,

scope, quality, and the other knowledge areas within the project. Here are the inputs to perform this process:

• Project scope statement

• WBS dictionary

• Project scope statement management plan

• Performance reports

• Approved change requests

• Work performance information

The outputs of this massive and not-so-enjoyable process are:

• Project scope statement updates. (Makes sense, right? If changes are approved to the project scope, then the changes have to be reflected in the scope statement, the WBS, and the WBS dictionary.)

• WBS dictionary updates.

• Scope baseline updates.

• Change requests.

• Recommended corrective actions.

• Organizational process asset updates.

• Project management plan updates.
