Guide and Best Practices

A project statement describes the work that needs to be done to deliver the project outputs on time and within the budget. The project scope statement document outlines what is being delivered (within scope), what is not being delivered (out of scope), assumptions to clarify the deliverables, and high-level requirements. It’s utilized as the basis for making project decisions, directing project effort, and to provide clarity on the project scope to project teams and stakeholders.

How to Write a Project Scope Statement

  • Start by creating a basic outline of the project. Collect the requirements of stakeholders, and create a work breakdown structure based on their needs.
  • Open a Creately project scope statement template and share it with your team to collaborate as you brainstorm around it.
  • With an idea of what needs to be done, you can then start to write your project scope statement which should address the following areas;
    • Justification: a brief statement explaining the need for your project and how the project will help fulfil it.
    • Scope description: describe what falls within the scope of the project and what is out of scope. This helps establish project boundaries.
    • Business objectives: outline the targets your business wants to cover with this project.
    • Project deliverables: define the deliverables your team needs to work on producing to meet the set objectives.
    • Project exclusions: clearly outline what the project doesn’t include or will not produce.
    • Constraints: identify factors that may impose limitations in terms of risks, resources, schedule, method, etc. that could affect the progress of your project.
    • Assumptions: what are the certain events that expected to occur during the course of the project?
  • Once the document is completed, you can export it as an SVG, PNG, or PDF so you can embed it in documents, reports, presentations, or share with the rest of the stakeholders.
