Scope baseline

Scope baseline for the project is the approved version of the project scope statement, work breakdown structure (WBS) and its associated WBS dictionary.  A baseline can be changed only through formal change control procedures and is used as a basis for comparison while performing Validate Scope and Control Scope processes.

Scope baseline is an output of Create WBS process.

Requirements include:

  • conditions or capabilities that are to be met by the project or present in the product, service  or result 
  • include the quantified and documented needs and expectations of the sponsor, customer, and other stakeholders.
