© Elizabeth Harrin May Agenda What is scope? Why is it difficult to manage? Improving scope management Two items that have to be in scope
© Elizabeth Harrin May A definition... Scope is the what of your project: a high-level statement of what you are going to do
© Elizabeth Harrin May Scope stats The average project: goes through four formal versions of scope only achieves 93% of what it set out to deliver (falling to 67% on projects that are delayed or over budget) will evolve more through in-house changes than through the customers changes Yet scope is the number one way to judge a projects success
© Elizabeth Harrin May Some difficulties Assumptions Mental model mismatch Scope creep
© Elizabeth Harrin May Assumptions Statements made during a project that are not based on known or certain facts
© Elizabeth Harrin May Assumptions Things you have to assume because you dont yet know Things you are taking for granted will stay the same
© Elizabeth Harrin May Assumptions It lay on its side in such a way that the solid parts of the block formed a roof and a floor, both waterproof, and the hollows made two spacious rooms. Lined with bits of leaves, grass, cloth, cotton fluff, feathers and other soft things Mrs Frisby and her children had collected, the house stayed dry, warm and comfortable all winter. A tunnel to the surface-earth of the garden, dug so that it was slightly larger than a mouse and slightly smaller than a cats foreleg, provided access, air, and even a fair amount of light to the living room. The bedroom, formed by the second oval, was warm but dark, even at midday. A short tunnel through the earth behind the block connected the two rooms.

© Elizabeth Harrin May Beat the issues Involve users in scope definition Manage risks and issues Manage changes Keep it small
© Elizabeth Harrin May Using users Be clear Document what is not included in the project Clarify your understanding If we did this, what would be left out? What would we do that is really unnecessary?
© Elizabeth Harrin May Risks and issues Changes result in risks/issues Risks/issues result in changes
© Elizabeth Harrin May Changes Any change will: need to be analysed for its impact on project objectives need to be analysed for its impact on project scope modify your existing plans need to be recorded properly for a complete audit trail Remember: changes are good!
© Elizabeth Harrin May Keep it small Pilot Proof of concept Phases Short tasks Phased implementation approach Extended pilot
© Elizabeth Harrin May Two essentials Dont forget to include these in your scope: Benefits plan Post-project review
© Elizabeth Harrin May Benefits How do you know if you have done a good job? By tracking benefits: Define success criteria Establish the current baseline Monitor ongoing achievement against targets
© Elizabeth Harrin May PPR analyse what went well to review the key challenges to bring everyone together at the end of the project to formally close it to formalise the key lessons learnt during the project to record this knowledge for other projects A post-project review is a debrief at the end of the project to:
