Project Management: Scope Tools & Techniques

Proper scope definition is critical to ensuring success in all areas of a project. Without a well-defined scope the development and definition of all of the other project elements are left to chance (e.g. Cost, Time, Quality). During the course of the project when change occurs, scope must be maintained to ensure appropriate project integration. The Scope Management processes and procedures must also be well-defined to prevent scope creep, cost overruns and missing schedule deadlines.

In this course, participants will learn techniques to more clearly define scope and create manageable scope management processes. Also, to be able to understand the importance of working closely with project integration and change control processes.
