Without a strong scope statement, you could end up spending valuable time and resources on work that isn’t even supposed to be part of your project.

The project scope statement is created at an early stage in the project to reflect the stakeholder’s common understanding of major activities to be performed in the project and provide a basis for future project decisions about what should and should not be included in the project.



Depending upon the size and scope of the project, a project scope statement should typically include:

  • Project objectives, deliverables, exclusions, and requirements.
  • Project constraints and assumptions
  • Project acceptance criteria


It may also include initial project organization, defined risks, schedule milestones, initial WBS, and approval requirements.
