Scope Boundary Work within the Scope Boundary Must Support the Projects MOV Work Outside of the Project Scope Copyright 2012 John Wiley 5-7 & Sons, Inc. Planning Scope Management The project team uses expert judgment and meetings to develop two important outputs

The scope management plan is a subsidiary part of the project management plan 8 Scope Management Plan Contents Example A Example B 9 Requirements Management Plan (RMP) conditions or capabilities that must be met by the project or present in the product, service, or

result to satisfy an agreement or other formally imposed specification* *The PMBOK Guide, Fifth Edition RMP: Collecting Requirements For some IT projects, it is helpful to divide requirements development into categories called elicitation, analysis, specification, and validation http://www.certified-re.de/en/home.html 11 Relative Cost to Correct a Software

Requirement Defect 12 RMP: Methods for Collecting Requirements 13 Statistics on Requirements for Software Projects * 88% of the software projects involved enhancing existing products instead of creating new ones 86% said that customer satisfaction was the most important metric for measuring the success of development projects

83% of software development teams still use MS Office applications (e.g. Word and Excel) as their main tools to communicate requirements *John Simpson, 2011: The State of Requirements Management (2011). Improving User Input 15 Improving User Input 16 Reduce Incomplete and Changing Requirements

17 RMP: Managing Requirements during Project A requirements traceability matrix (RTM) is a table that lists requirements, various attributes of each requirement, and the status of the requirements to ensure that all requirements are addressed Another Example 18 SMP: Defining Scope Project scope statements should include at least:

19 Statement of Work Narrative description of the product, service, or information system. For internal projects, this is tied to the business need

For external projects, this would include specifications, quantities, quality standards, and performance requirements for prospective bidders. Scope Statement 1. Develop a proactive electronic commerce strategy that identifies the processes, products and services to be delivered through the World Wide Web. 2.

Develop an application system that supports all of the processes, products, and services identified in the electronic commerce strategy. 3. The application system must integrate with the banks existing enterprise resource planning system. 5-21 Out of Scope 1.

Technology and organizational assessment of the current environment 2. Customer resource management and data mining components 5-22 Project Scope Definition The scope boundary and scope statement provide a useful first step The projects scope must now be defined in more detail in terms of specific deliverables

that provide a basis for developing the projects work breakdown structure (WBS) Tools: 5-23 Project-Oriented vs. Product-Oriented Deliverables Project-Oriented Deliverables Product-Oriented Deliverables 5-24 Deliverable Definition Table (DDT)

This may be a formal document. Define Scope A detailed description of the product, service, or information system to be designed, built and implemented. A detailed scope statement

defines what work will and will not be part of the project and will serve as a basis for all future project decisions Create the Work Breakdown Structure The decomposition or dividing of the major project deliverables (i.e., scope) into smaller and more manageable components Verify Scope Confirmation and formal acceptance that the projects scope is accurate, complete, and supports the projects MOV. The project team and sponsor must agree to all deliverables Control Scope Ensuring that controls are in place to manage proposed scope changes once the projects scope is set. Must be communicated to all project

stakeholders. 5-46 Scope Management Plan Collect Requirements Define Scope Create Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) Verify Scope Control Scope Centers on defining and documenting the

The decomposition or dividing of the major project deliverables into smaller and more manageable components. Confirmation and formal acceptance that projects scope is accurate, complete, and supports the projects goal.
