It is hard to underestimate project scope importance, because without having a clearly stated and defined scope of your project, you are likely to fail at the very beginning of the project management process. Definition of project scope is one of the first steps in most project management methodologies, including PMBOK and Prince2. The project management process will not be sufficiently identified if a distinct definition is not created.
Therefore, when you want to initiate a project you need to pay attention to setting scope for the project and planning steps to identify inclusions and exclusions. Also you will need to estimate resources required for your project. In this connection, a project scope triangle (a combination of such resources as Costs, Time and Technology) should be considered.
