background need for scoping study
Background - Need for Scoping Study

Establishing the scope of a project is oneof the most critical steps in order to mitigate the risk of any IT project . The project scope should be a written statement giving a description of what functionality , legal entities and business units are in and also OUT of scope and should be signed off by the steering committee.

Establishing a well-defined scope:

  • Sets accurate expectations.
  • Defines the quantity of work to be done.
  • Sets the boundaries for the work that is to be done.

The project scope includes the following areas:

  • Number of business units (size, geography, complexity)
  • Level of commonality planned across business units
  • List of processes in and out of scope
  • Level of organizational change (structure, relationships)
  • Company locations or number of sites
  • Line of business or product lines included and excluded in the scope .

The scope also describes the functional areas to be covered by the Project and the degree of

standardization (chart of accounts, cost center organization, master data, globally standardized

business processes, etc.) as well as the freedom left for local modifications and add-ons.
