Project ScopingEvery technology-based business system starts with a project scoping exercise which at a minimum includes gathering business requirements, understanding workflow processes and projecting overall project costs. This phase of a project is also commonly called a Project Charter or Scope of Work. The terminology varies from company to company but the process is the same. This phase outlines a realistic project budget for management approval.
Once the project is approved, the biggest challenge is keeping the implementation within budget. The primary cause of budget overruns is changing requirements. In most cases the problem can be traced back to not asking the right questions in the first place when scoping the original project.
