    Process scope?
    Your project scope should be defined by the project business statement, business metrics, and with the agreement/support of your project champion.

    @moser I am with @cseider on this. I have never heard the term process scope. Just looking at it logically a process is defined for you by the way things are structured either by engineering, physics, first principles, etc.

    Project is pretty much your call. It can be multiple processes or it can be part of a process.

    OK, thanks for your replies. I will stick to the Project scope. Should be enough!

    Key difference is that a project begins and ends. A process continues after your project. When you do a SIPOC or other method to set the scope boundaries for your project you are defining what part of ongoing operations is in scope for your project. Your are saying that your project deals with the process that’s within these boundaries. But your project scope is your goals, your resource requirements, your team, your schedule, in short your project plan.
