Scope planning is the process of creating a project scope management plan that documents how the project scope will be defined, verified, controlled, and how the work breakdown structure (WBS) will be created and defined. The goal of scope planning is to create the output of the scope planning process the Project Scope Management Plan. To be successful creating the scope statement and the scope management plan, the project manager and the project team must have a full understanding of the project requirements, business need of the project, and stakeholder expectations. 

When the project begins, the project manager has a unique role to play. The start of the project is the time when the scope of the project is defined; only the project manager is equipped to make sure that it’s defined properly. Everyone else has a role to play later on: team members and stakeholders will provide expertise and requirements specifications. Everyone involved in the project has some input into the scope, but only the project manager is solely dedicated to it. Defining the scope is one of the most productive things a project manager can do to get the project underway.
