Chapter 3. Scope management

This chapter looks at the processes focused upon how to plan, define, manage, and control changes to the project requirements, scope, and work breakdown structure (WBS).

The Project Scope Management knowledge area includes six processes. Four of the six processes are planning processes; the other two are monitoring and controlling processes. Properly defining the project scope statement is critical in order to complete other planning activities such as planning the project cost, project time, quality, communications, human resources, and procurement. Without properly defined requirements, scope, and WBS, you simply cannot complete these other activities well.
