Visibility & communication are key in leading teams. If you are not writing your goals down, do you really have goals? A scope is a document for reference that cuts down wasted time answering the same questions. This leaves room for better questions, and better questions equal better outcomes. Having a project scope shows you are serious about driving clarity for your organization, team and yourself!
Does a project scope really matter?
In short, YES! These documents are vital for any team these days, especially as the workforce continues to navigate in-person office hours. These documents keep your team focused and on track in an asynchronous manner. Plus, the documentation you leave behind by having a project scope is great if you suffer from an unexpected life event (like the Rapture).
If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that we must learn to work remotely at the drop of a hat. Having clear documentation on both where you’re going and where you’ve been is key to the longevity of your organization.
How to create a project scope:
Here is a checklist of items to include on your project’s scope:
- What is the goal of your work?
- When is the timeline of completion?
- How are quality scores or KPI’s met?
- Can you make weekly meetings to talk about progress & updates?
How to implement a scope of work:
Use your scope as your document to track progress in your weekly meetings. Implement a rolling meeting notes that capture ideas and tasks to complete the scope of work. Move tasks into a task management software like clickup.com or asana.com
