Documenting the Scope Management Plan

The scope management plan describes how the project team will go about defining project scope, verifying the work of the project, and managing and controlling scope. The PMBOK® Guide does not go into detail regarding this plan, but there are some things you may need to know about this plan for the exam.

The project scope management plan should contain the following:

■ The process you'll use to prepare the project scope statement. The project scope statement (which I'll define later in this chapter) contains a detailed description of the project deliverables.

■ A process for creating the work breakdown structure (WBS). The WBS further defines the work of the project (as defined in the scope statement) by breaking down the deliverables into smaller pieces of work. We'll talk about the WBS at the end of this chapter.

■ A definition of how the deliverables will be verified for accuracy and the process used for accepting deliverables.

■ A description of the process for controlling scope change requests, including the procedure for requesting changes and how to obtain a change request form.
