Scope Management

In setting the foundation for discussing the project management function of Scope Management, one has to first understand that this concept entails managing the entire scope of the project. "The scope of a project can be either the work content or component of a project. It can be fully described by naming all activities performed, the end products which result and the resources 'consumed' " [I0|. Scope Management, therefore, clearly has to be a concern for any project manager. Although all of the project management functions addressed in Project #121 are being developed individually, as a whole they provide a uniform framework for PMI's "Body of Knowledge!' The functions are interrelated and mutually supportive. To achieve the objectives of a project, they must also be employed in an integrated manner. This is especially inherent when discussing Scope Management.
