Project Scope Management Study Notes

What is Project Scope Management?

Project Scope Management includes processes required to ensure that the project includes all the work required, and only the work required, to complete the project successfully. 

Please note that “gold plating,”  including features and requirements in the product or deliverable not originally planned, is not a recommended practice. 
Major scope management processes include:
  • Collect Requirements 
  • Define Scope 
  • Create WBS 
  • Verify Scope 
  • Control Scope
