Project Scope Management
Project scope management is closely aligned with integrated change control. In essence, a project needs a scope statement to steer the project in the right direction. But the scope statement is not a simple one-paragraph statement. Depending on the scale and complexity of the project, a fully developed project scope statement can be a set of hefty documents. These documents can include elemental breakdown of the entire building project, specifications and drawings. Based on progressive elaboration, development of the project scope statement would require many inputs from stakeholders to define the scope of work clearly and without ambiguities. There are three major components in scope management. These include establishing the scope, managing scope change, and verifying scope.
