Filling in the Details
You talk to the accounting director about their vision for the project—the scope statement, deliverables and exclusions. After the meeting, you fill in several more sections of your scope of work:
In order to accommodate the large increase in the number of employees we will be hiring for the next five years, we will deliver a new timecard system that will be easy to use and will be able to be deployed by the June 30th deadline under the allocated budget of $25,000.
As part of the project, we will deliver a fully functional timecard system with all current employees, and charge codes configured. A two day training session will be held for both employees and administrators after the implementation but before the commissioning of the system. The chosen vendor will provide detailed documentation and will offer support of the system for one year from the date of commissioning.
We will not install a remote access web interface as part of this project. Employees will need to be at the corporate office in order to fill out their timecards. We will also not provide any customized reports as a part of this project.
With that, you seek feedback from your boss and the project sponsor. They seem happy with the project scope so far.
