Diploma Project Management Captain Cook College Sharon Boyle
Discussed results for Activity 1,2 & 3 Scope can change formally or it can creep scope changes formally ◦ scope creeps Practiced WBS development on Manly Food & Wine Festival Reinforced the steps within Scope for a complex project. ?Began the scope management plan for Fred’s Sheds
Scoping exercise ◦ I prefer more verbs (doing words) ◦ Most of your items were nouns (naming words) ◦ These must be turned into tasks to estimate duration & costs. ◦ Deliverables are NOT deliveries
Deliverables Deliveries A direct products Sent by someone of the project with an invoice which have been agreed upon by the client or sponsor
At each stage of Project management we: collect inputs, use tools & techniques produce outputs.
In establishing Scope Requirements must be collected. This varies according to client or sponsor ◦ Some not negotiable – its in the tender ◦ Some this is a long stage ◦ Some may change their mind Likely to be a longer process if project is internal Let’s discuss why

But what about changes? ◦ How do we follow what changes are to come? ◦ Fred’s bid has been accepted by Mr Jones who now wants a large, heavy and expensive weather vane erected on the front of the shed. See photo. ◦ Do we accept the change as a variation? ◦ What will it do to scope? ◦ How should we document?
What is it about…?
How to measure changes? How has the project changed?
Nice to get one change all settled but Where & how to keep track of all this? Who needs to know
