So, congratulations on finding the perfect development agency for your project. The previous steps must have helped you, we believe.
Now, it’s time to get the actual work going — to sit with your development team and discuss the scope of work for your project.
Project scope is a detailed overview of all aspects of a project, including related activities, resources, schedules, results, and project boundaries.
The project scope also provides you with an overview of key stakeholders, processes, assumptions, constraints, and the project’s content- with and without it. All this important information is documented in the scope statement.
And then, for the project managers, managing stakeholder and customer expectations is one of the most demanding tasks. Scoping really helps them, as with defined project scope, they can easily track things and ensure that all deadlines are met throughout the project lifecycle.
A well-defined scope would help you avoid common problems such as:
- Constantly changing project requirements
- Redirection of the project while the project is running
- Realizing that the final result is not as expected
- Beyond the budget in mind
- Falling behind the decided deadline
Effective project scope management gives you an overview of project time, effort, and cost, and it helps you distinguish what you need and don’t need to run your project. The scope of project management also defines the control elements of the project to take into account the elements that may change during the project’s life cycle.
If we start talking about Project Scoping in detail — this playbook is going to get long. Therefore we’ll be only briefing you about the key elements to consider in your scoping process. They are:
