Executive Summary

The aim of this report is to provide a comprehensive executive summary of what the project
will entail. It demonstrates on the high-level technical overview of your project with the concerns
on the project scope, goals & objectives, the cost of the project, and IT implementation planning.
The project is highly recommended because it will enhance the maintenance of the competitive
edge of the company. It also offers a secure environment for the various business operations
especially those that involve the e-commerce system.
Scope of the Project and Control Measures.
The scope of the project is to come up with the system that will support the ecommerce
system as well as support the secure connectivity of the intranet with the extranet. The scope
includes the infrastructure that is set in placed to provide the support for the online system for
ecommerce. It will incorporate the security integrations in the systems and measures which are set
to ensure that operations which involve the ecommerce and the internal systems are secure enough
from external cybersecurity threats.
Control Measures
The scope management will be done so as to determine how the project will meet the scope
requirements. It is a way of ensuring that appropriate measures are done to check that the project
still meets the requirements that it was set to accomplish. The following are the measures which
are set in place to control the scope of the project;
a. Regular monitoring of the progress – this will be done to ensure that the appropriate parts
of the systems are accomplished on time by the various stakeholders. The progress
monitoring of the project will also enhance the capability of identifying the tasks which are



dragging the whole project. It helps to take measures which will control such task and
ensure that they do not cover areas that are not covered in the scope.
b. Comparison of project activities with the set scope – it is essential for the project’s activities
to always be compared to the set scope of the project. In any case that there is a diversion
to the expected deliverables, then appropriate changes should be made to align the project
again to the expected scope coverage.
c. Budget check – regular check will be done to ensure that the procured resources and
operational costs do not exceed the expected threshold of the budget. Schedule variance
computation will be used to find determine the momentary value which shows how behind
or how ahead the project schedule is. Cost variance will be used to show how below or
above the budget of the project is. The earned value, planned value and actual cost variables
will be taken into consideration when coming with such control measures and calculations.
d. Another element of scope is the deliverables of the project based on the milestones that
have already are available.
e. The project managers must regulate the scope of any project to avoid creep in the scope
and missed deadlines, which in intern leads to the project failure in completion
f. A work breakdown structure (WBS) should also come before a project execution starts
The proper scope control will enhance the capability of the project procedures meeting the
goals of the organization. It will also help to focus the efforts on what really leverages on the
achievement of the scope of the project.
Goals and Objectives of the Project.
The goal of the project is to provide a secure, efficient and organized environment that will
support the ecommerce system of the organization which will help to promote the competitive



edge of the InfoSec Company. The main objective of a project is...
