WhatIs.com Word of the Day: project scope

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

“In traditional project management, the project ends when the scope is complete. Success is determined by whether first, the scope is complete; and second and third, whether it’s completed on schedule and on budget…The agile method is flexible on scope, but holds schedule and budget constant.” — Joseph Flahiff

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is project scope, the part of project planning that involves determining — and documenting — a list of specific project goals, deliverables, tasks, costs and deadlines. During the project, this documentation helps the project team remain focused and on task. The scope statement also provides the project team with guidelines for making decisions about change requests during the project.
