Planning the Project Scope

In Chapter 5 we'll discuss and dissect the project scope in detail. For now, know that the project scope is the work that must be done in order to create the product, service, or result the project aims to deliver. The project manager, the project team, and the stakeholders work together to define the project scope; their goal is to create the project scope management plan. The project scope management plan defines how the project scope will be defined, verified, controlled, and how the project's work breakdown structure (WBS) will be created. The WBS, if you're not familiar with the term, is a breakdown of the project scope, and is often called the scope baseline. In order to create the project scope management plan, you'll need:

• Enterprise environmental factors

• Organizational process assets

• A project charter

• A preliminary project scope statement (created during project initiation)

• A project management plan
