Managing Project Time and Scope
- Scope management planning: create a scope management plan that identifies a framework for overall scope management within each project.
- Defining scope: use a variety of tools to collect requirements: interviews; focus groups; facilitated workshops; questionnaires and surveys; and other applicable tools. Create a requirements traceability matrix. Create a WBS.
- Validating scope: identify activities that can measure and examine whether the deliverables meet the desired requirements.
- Controlling scope: establish a change control procedure that will manage scope changes. Compare the degree of scope variance with scope baseline to decide whether preventive or corrective action is required.
- Tools and techniques used to plan and manage the schedule: critical chain and others.
- Schedule models: the critical path method; estimating the minimum project duration; calculating early start; early finish; late start; and late finish dates for all activities.
- Estimating activity resources and durations using various tools; optimizing resources.
