Scope Planning: Tools and Techniques
The goal of scope planning is to create a project scope statement and the project scope management plan, two of the outputs of the scope planning process.
The project manager and the project team must have a full understanding of the project requirements, the business need of the project, and stakeholder expectations to be successful in creating the scope statement and the scope management plan.
Recall that there are two types of scope:
Product scope Features and functions of the product of the project
Project scope The work needed to create the product of the project
