What is a scope?
Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) Control Scope and Minimize Scope Creep
What is a scope?
Staying On Track? – When the Scope Goes Bad!
Documenting the scope is proactive detective work to gather and define detailed requirements.
Budget and Time
Project Team and Subject Matter Experts
Current State: Prior to Project Start

Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
is the basis for dividing work into definable increments
is a hierarchical decomposition of the project into phases, deliverables and work packages
helps to take a project and ‘break’ it down into manageable parts
Projects maybe broken down into three levels
What is scope creep?
Introduction of requirements that were not in the approved deliverable
small changes that can accumulate to unaccounted for work effort
Dealing with Change?
Communicate changes and get approval before including them in the scope.
challenges a project's success
causes project team to drift from original purpose
Unvetted and unapproved changes
Vetted and Approved changes
accepted cost and/or time impact by sponsor
clear expectations with updated scope work breakdown structure
Achievable and Attainable Deliverables!
Tools to bring it all together
