I came across another white paper that Karl Wiegers wrote today, this one sponsored by Jama. For a white paper, it really isn’t specific to a particular software package or methodology, which I liked. It’s just a nice, short (but not too short) discussion of four different techniques for defining project scope. The four techniques are Context Diagrams, Use Case Diagrams, Feature Roadmaps, and System Events (triggers). The last couple of pages are about managing scope creep.
It’s a short, practical article that I think is worth pointing out. So enjoy!
