Statement of work

The statement of work is a description of the objectives of the project or programme. It is one of the very first documents to be produced and is unlikely to contain a great deal of detail. Its primary purpose is to trigger the develop charter process and provide the context of the work.

It should contain three main sections:

  • Business need
  • An explanation of why the business needs to undertake this work.

  • Strategic positioning
  • A description of how this business need fits into the strategic objectives of the organisation.

  • Objectives
  • A high level description of the outputs, outcomes and/or benefits that the work should deliver and how they fulfil the business need.

No history has been recorded.
