Title: Statement of Work
About this GuideIn traditional PMBOK project management the SOW (Statement of Work) is the document that authorises the project to commence. However, in common practice within web projects at least, the SOW is typically the agency’s response to the client brief, ensuring that project scope, objectives and deliverables are commonly understood and agreed, as well as providing an initial estimate of the degree of work involved in delivering the project. A number of assumptions are made in order to be able to deliver this high level budget estimate and milestone plan, and it is critical that these assumptions are documented in the SOW. Once approved by the client the SOW acts as the catalyst for the agency to begin defining the project requirements and solution in more detail. We’d like to thank Rob Purdie of Important Projects http://importantprojects.co.uk for providing this template. Important Projects is a values-led project management consulting and training practice focused on helping social change organisations manage their most important programs, projects and ongoing operations more successfully and effectively.
