Project Scope Template Powered By Docstoc
					This is a template that can help establish the scope of a business project by establishing
what objectives the project will strive to achieve. Typically, a scope statement will not
only include what the project hopes to accomplish, but it also establishes what the
project will not accomplish. This template outlines project deliverables, affected
organizations within the company, affected business processes, exclusions from scope,
implementation of approach, and time schedule. This document should be used by
small businesses or other entities that want to clarify and establish project goals and
objectives.

                                               Scope
[Project scope is the boundary of the project. Think of the “project scope” as an imaginary box
you are describing that will enclose all the activities for the team’s activities. It not only defines
what you are doing, but it sets the boundaries on what the team will not be doing over the course
of the project engagement. Scope answers what’s inside the box? What’s outside the box? What
is the project going to look like? How much is our project going to contain?




                                  High Level Requirements
[Describe the high level requirements of the system. This can be described as follows: The new
system must have the:
     Ability to allow both internal and external users to access the application without
         downloading any software.
     Ability to interface with the existing data warehouse application
     Ability to incorporate automated routing and notification based on business rules
    etc.]
