Scope management is perhaps the most important responsibility of a Project Manager. After all, this is what your project is all about: the delivery of a unique product, service, or result. If you fail to create and deliver the product, your project will be considered a failure. You will have failed as a Project Manager.
Scope Management can be subdivided into two major functions: 1) the process of formally and precisely defining what your project will (and won’t) deliver to the customer at the end of the project; and, 2) actively managing and controlling changes to that scope definition.
