Scope is the extent of what you will cover with the project, so what sits within the boundaries of what you will accomplish at the end of the project.
Say for example you were rolling out a new version of Windows in a business. You could define the scope as follows:
The above clearly outlines what your project covers and what it doesn’t implicitly. So for example, your project doesn’t cover Macs, mobile devices and staff in other buildings, only in Building 1.
Objectives do not relate to what you will cover or the extent of what you will do, but more what you’re trying to achieve. In a way, it answers why you’re doing the project. In the example above, you could have the following objectives:
Project scope is the extent of work that needs to be done to deliver a project, while project objectives are set of measurable functional and non-functional requirements that must be achieved for a deliverable to be classified as a success and ‘done’.
