Project Charter

Tool that formally authorizes a project. It is a document that states what is to be done and the boundaries of the project.

Body of knowledge

Integration Management

Scope Management

Process required to ensure that the project includes all the work required, and only the work required to complete the project successfully. Primarily concerned with defining and controlling what is or is not included in the project

Main objectives, 1. Defining the Scope, 2. Controlling changes to the defined requirements of the project, 3. Managing Scope Creep

Phases, 1. Scope Planning, 2. Scope Definition, Scope Statement, Requirements, 3. Create WBS, 1. Take deliverables from project charter, 2. Decompose 1st level deliverables, 3. Check if there are missing deliverables, 4. Try to level the hierarchy, 5. Validate the WBS bottom-up, 6. Compare WBS with original project objectives, 4. Scope Verification, 5. Scope Control
