Project Scope management includes the processes that is required to ensure successful completion of the project. It includes all the work required to complete the project successfully. There are five processes that take place in Project Scope Management. Lets discuss these process groups of Project Scope Management.

Five Project Management Process Groups in Project Scope Management:

  • Collect Requirements
  • Define Scope
  • Create WBS
  • Verify Scope
  • Control Scope

Collect Requirements:

This is the first process group in scope management. It is the process of defining and documenting stakeholders need to meet the project activities. The document for collecting requirements is developed in the project planning phase.

Define Scope:

This is the process of developing a detailed description of the Project and product. So while Collecting requirement list, all the different requirements of the Project and the resulting product or service are defined.

Create WBS:

Creating work breakdown structure is done using a technique called decomposition. It is basically the process of subdividing project deliverables and project work into smaller and more manageable components.

Verify Scope:

This is the process which is a part of project monitoring and control process group. This process includes reviewing deliverables with the customer or sponsor to ensure that they are completed satisfactorily and obtaining formal acceptance of deliverables by the customer or sponsor.

Control Scope:

Control Scope is the last process group of project scope management. It is again a part of project monitoring and control process group. Control scope is the process of monitoring the status of the project and Product scope and managing changes to the scope baseline. This process ensures that all requested changes and recommended corrective or preventive actions are processed through the integrated change control process.
