Scope verification is the process of obtaining formal acceptance of the project scope of stakeholder. The stakeholder could be the sponsor, the client or the customer. It requires reviewing deliverables and work results to ensure that all were completed correctly and satisfactorily. If the project is terminated early, the scope verification process should establish and document the level and extent of completion. Scope verification created a shared understanding of the desired project outcomes with relevant stakeholders, as the stakeholders will be well informed in advance of what the project outcome has delivered and what has not been done or needed corrective actions.
In project management, changes will happen all the time and when such changes are happening, it becomes necessary to ensure that the changes are addressed as well as possible. It is necessary for the project manager to have some method to track and monitor or manage the changes, only then change management becomes issue free. In this context scope control or change control becomes necessary. Scope control or change control is how scope management would be changed to ensure the agreed upon deliverables are created. Scope control will focus on the scope change and will manage it too. Project scope control hence focuses holistically on the factors that create project scope changes and endeavors to control the impact of those changes. Scope management control will determine if a scope change has occurred and it is about to occur. Then it will recommend by identifying the scope creep (incremental responses) the form of change that is occurring or would be occurring. Once the actual changes are identified then it becomes easier to integrate them with other control processes. Usually where the changes are not controlled or are uncontrolled then it could result in dynamic change in scope management.
