Say for example you were rolling out a new version of Windows in a business. You could define the scope as follows: Windows Desktops and Laptops Staff in Building 1 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: Provide Staff in Building 1 with the latest Windows operating system available in the market Improve productivity Enhance IT Security Reduce vulnerabilities Keep Windows desktops and laptops up to date 2 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Nike Fisher READING, United Kingdom (UK) 0 Questions 5 Answers 1 Best Answers 47 Points View Profile Nike Fisher Hatchling Added an answer on May 12, 2019 at 2:40 pm 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’. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
