What would be an example of project exclusions in a project initiation document in project management? Couldn’t it be just about anything?
Yes, it could be anything, but it’s all about managing stakeholder expectations. What might people think is part of the project, but really it isn’t? If you’re building a house, perhaps the interior decorating is defined as outside the scope of your particular project, or perhaps the landscaping is. If your project is to write a feasibility report, then you might write a project exclusion (sometimes referred to a project boundary) to make it clear that you will not be implementing anything as part of your project, just writing a report. Often project exclusions, or boundaries, are documented in a project charter document.
