While most of us intuitively understand the concept of scope, many do not firmly understand how project managers use the terms "scope", "scope creep", and "scope change". After defining these terms, we will review parameters that most commonly define the scope of a project from both a sponsor, CRO, and site perspective. The importance of tracking scope changes and monitoring for scope creep will be shown using examples of how these could impact on studies.
