What is the purpose of Project Scope Management?

Project scope management is the process by which the goals of the project are and what work is allowable in order to complete that project.  It outlines what can and cannot be done to accomplish the overall goal of the project as well as what is necessary in the outcome of the overall project.

Discuss what is included in the Project Scope Management. Give examples of each section along with the purpose for each.

I’m not entirely sure as to what this question is asking as it is a little vague.  Project scope management being a process by which there are multiple inputs such as; defining the scope, creating a work breakdown structure, and validating the scope to achieve an output of the scope management plan and the requirements management plan. (Project Management Institute Inc., 2017)  Each step of the process is designed to collect data and determine what can and cannot be done to achieve the end results of the project.  For example, defining scope is the process by which a detailed overview of the project and project is created. (Project Management Institute Inc., 2017)

Why is it important to ensure the Project Scope Management is integrated with the other Knowledge Area processes?

It is important that the other knowledge areas of project management are integrated into the scope management plan in order to facilitate the process of completing the project.  For example, if the correct methods for collecting data are not allowed for the project, then the project will not have any viability at the end or will simply not be able to be completed.  Communication and decision making should be included to outline the necessary processes to be developed and limited in the communication plan.

  1. What is the purpose of Project Scope Management?

The purpose of project scope management is to get all the information required for a project and meet stakeholders requirements.

  1. Discuss what is included in the Project Scope Management. Give examples of each section along with the purpose for each.

Im not sure if this is what is being asked or not. So many different aspects can be written about.

Planning: The planning process is when an attempt is made to capture and define the work that needs to be done.  The planning portion is when the project is becoming a plan for a project. Figure out all information that needs to be done with the project and making making a plan.

Controlling: The controlling and monitoring processes focus on documenting tracking, scope creep, tracking, and disapproving/approving project changes. In the controlling aspect, it is important to make sure all plans are approved through all channels before they can become an actually active project. This portion also controls the project and any changes that need to be made to the project.

Closing: The final process, closing includes an audit of the project deliverables and an assessment of the outcomes against the original plan. The closing portion of the process helps to determine if the project was done the way the original plan was created or what changes needed to be made for the project.

  1. Why is it important to ensure the Project Scope Management is integrated with the other Knowledge Area processes?

All these areas are important for the Project Scope Management and other knowledge area processes because they help with the process and completion of the projects. Communication from the beginning of a project set up to the end of the project completion is important to have. Accountability is important for projects, people and every other aspect.
