Efficient project management means planning carefully and controlling the project scope. Scope management requires creating the work breakdown structure (WBS), establishing baseline requirements, and validating and controlling the scope management plan. In this course, you'll explore project scope management, including working with focus groups and facilitating workshops and group creativity sessions to gather project requirements and document them. You'll also learn about using tools like WBS dictionaries, project scope statements, and variance analysis to help avoid scope creep and keep your project on track and on schedule.
