English [Auto] Hello and welcome to the first lecture of the scope management knowledge area. In this lecture we will talk about what the scope management is and why we need such a knowledge area let's start with the meaning of scope scope is simply the definition of the work we will execute. This is the work we will do so scope management deals with the definition of the word by doing scope management. We make sure we do the work defined for our project. There are two major rules o scope management. The first rule is we shouldn't do less star written in the scope here. Please note that I don't say we can't change the scope. We can't change the scope if we follow the change control procedures as written in the change management plan. And if the change request is in parallel with the business case which is written in the project charter the second rule is we shouldn't do more than what is written in the scope doing more than what the customer was is called gold plating. We will talk about gold plating in the quality management section for now just know that gold plating is not allowed. There are two scope types. The product's scope and the project's scope. I will give you an example for you to better understand the difference between these two assume you are the project manager or construction project at the end of the project. You will end up with this building as you know there is a construction phase or this building you construct is building during this phase. Here you are working with your team to complete this building as a result of the construction efforts. You get the building here. This building is your final product. There are four floors. There is an elevator inside and there are eight offices in this building. These are the features and the functions of the building or in other words these are the scope of the product project's scope consists of the project work and the product scope. So the information about what work you should do to complete the project work is included in the project's scope. The efforts of your team to complete the project are also included in the project's scope. Here please note that project scope also includes the product scope to therefore we can't say that the product scope is part of the project scope. All right. Now take a look at what processes are involved in the scope management knowledge area. As you see scope management has for planning and to monitoring and controlling processes. Let's take a first look at these processes let's start with the planning processes first. The first planning process is called Plan scope management. We plan how we are going to manage and control the scope in the scope management plan. And here is the process we create this plan. We collect the requirements from all the stakeholders here in the collect requirements process that we need to clearly define the scope. We do it in the defined scope process after defining the scope it is to be formally approved. Otherwise we cannot start the project The Last planning process or the scope management knowledge area is the create WB s process as its name implies we create the work breakdown structure in this process the first monitoring and controlling process is called the validated scope process. We have mentioned the name of this process in our previous lectures. This is the process where we take the interim approval for the deliverables the next monitoring and controlling process is the control scope process we control the scope it gains the scope baseline here. In this process in the following lectures we will be talking about these processes one by one in a detailed manner we first start with the plan scope management process in the next lecture. So I will see you there. Thanks for watching.
