Defining Scope

Scope is collectively the product, service, or result of the project. Scope can refer to product scope (the features and characteristics that describe the product, service, or result of the project) or project scope (the project management work). We'll look at both product and project scope in this section.

Now that you've documented the project requirements, you're ready to further define the needs of the project in the Define Scope process. The project scope statement (an output of this process) is what you'll use to develop and document a detailed description of the deliverables of the project and the work needed to produce them. This process is progressively elaborated as more detail becomes known.
