What are project exclusions?

What would be an example of an exclusion in a project initiation document in project management? When I look it up I’m told things that are not covered in the project? Surely that could mean 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 project, or perhaps the landscaping is out-of-scope.  Exclusions are often mentioned in project charter documents and/or project scope statements, and are sometimes referred to as project boundaries.
