Stay organized on your projects with a scope of work template

This customizable digital checklist can help project managers list questions and guidelines when preparing an SOW. Use this template to help you remember and accomplish important to-dos before getting your SOW ready for sign-off. A scope of work template is similar to a safe work method statement as it lists job activities, personnel responsibilities, and required equipment. Using these two templates in tandem with each other will increase your chances of finishing your project on time and under budget.
