Your Statement of Work is one of the best (and worst!) weapons in a project manager’s arsenal. It can serve as the one piece of documentation that saves you from a world of trouble, but on the flip side, it takes a lot of work to produce.

This guide helps you create a SoW that will be your best weapon. Learn what a SoW is, what purpose it serves, what to include, and how to make use of it throughout your project. Check out a few SoW examples and follow a simple 7-step process to write a solid SoW that contains the right level of detail to set your projects up for success.
