Project Management Documentation / Project scope statements
A scope statement details a project’s deliverables, assumptions, and constraints, as well as a description of the work to be performed and measurable success criteria. In essence, it defines the limits of the project in terms of time, quality and cost. These details will provide a documented basis for making all future project decisions and for developing a common understanding of project scope among the stakeholders.
Preparation of a project scope statement is the first step when starting a new authorized project; it creates the groundwork from which all planning activities will be launched. Establishing a clear and concise project scope statement is critical to the success of a project as it is the basis for managing stakeholder expectations and guiding the project team’s work during execution. Establishing appropriate project boundaries in the scope statement will mitigate future scope creep and keep a project under proper control.
