Scope Change Management

The purpose of Scope Change Management is to protect the viability of the current, approved Project Definition and the current, approved business requirements.

When the project was defined, certain assumptions were made as to what the project was going to produce.

These were identified and agreed to in the scope section of the Project Definition and the more detailed business requirements.

If the deliverables change during the project (and usually this means that the client wants additional items), the estimates for cost, effort and duration may no longer be valid.

If the sponsor agrees to include the new work into the project scope, the project manager has the right to expect that the current budget and deadline will be modified (usually increased) to reflect this additional work. This new estimated cost, effort and duration now become the approved target.


Sometimes the project manager thinks that scope management means having to tell the client 'no'. That makes the project manager nervous and uncomfortable.

However, the good news is that managing scope is all about getting the sponsor to make the decisions that will result in changes to project scope.
This is very important. Few clients can see and express every requirement up-front.

Therefore, there are usually changes that need to be introduced during the lifecycle. These changes may be very necessary for the solution and there may be valid business reasons why they should be included. The project manager and project team must recognize when these changes are requested.

Then they must follow a predefined scope change process. This process ultimately brings the appropriate information to the Project Sponsor and allows the sponsor to decide if the modification should be approved based on the business value and the impact to the project in terms of cost and schedule.
