Project Scope Statement Template

					This is a template for a project scope statement that can take a variety of forms
depending on the project being completed. Typically, a scope statement outlines
project deliverables and establishes the main objectives for the project. The main
objectives should contain assessable success criteria that will help determine whether a
project is meeting its goals. This statement should include an expansive definition of
the project and what it hopes to accomplish. This document should be used by small
businesses or other entities that want to clarify and establish project goals and
objectives.
