Project success begins with fully defining a scope of services and preparing a detailed budget. These serve as roadmaps guiding your efforts in meeting your client's requirements. Without these guides, you may risk scope creep, budget overruns, financial losses, and dissatisfied clients.  

So how do you help your project managers effectively prepare a scope of services and design budget? Start with well-planned and developed systems and forms.

Join Howard Birnberg to explore the importance of preparing these plans, suggested forms, and how to control scope creep. You'll also receive guidance on how to improve your existing processes.


  • Evaluate your ability to meet scope and budget requirements
  • Develop your ability to effectively control scope changes
  • Understand the various approaches to project budgeting
  • Consider the factors contributing to your project exceeding its fee budget
  • Review selected forms to help you plan a project's scope of services
