The modern world we live in has brought about chances in abundance and many a career from back in the day will soon find itself redundant, thanks to the immense technological advances brought about by the fourth industrial revolution. There is however one career choice that is reaping major benefits from the capriciousness that goes hand in hand with modern day business. And that career is project management. More and more businesses are realizing the immense benefit associated with the strategic advantages that real project management can provide them and as a result more and more project management vacancies are created.
Learning more about project management is something you will always benefit from, whether you are actually a project manager, a business manager in general or someone aspiring to become a project manager. The art of disciplined management of the uncertainty that comes with project management is something that will always be to the benefit of those who take the time to learn it.
Project scope management forms one of the core aspects of project management. It is one of the ten project knowledge areas recognized as a core component of project management and when executed correctly it ensures that your projects start off right, every single time. The ultimate goal of a project is to fulfill a business need by creating something of value and scope management is the discipline that defines what that something is.
There is nothing worse than the idea of successfully completing a project only to find out that the deliverable created does not meet the expectations of the end users, rendering it effectively useless and the project a complete failure. The six processes of scope management, namely plan scope management, collect requirements, define scope, create WBS, control scope and validate scope help you avoid just that.
