10 Must-Haves For Project Description

Planning a new project or extending an existing one always starts with the specification of the work to be done. 

Such a document defines the purpose, goals, and functions of the project to be developed. The more details you provide to the development team, the easier it will be to define the deliverables of the finished product. 

What exactly do you need to specify? 

Here is the skeleton of the document that you can use to create one by yourself. 

 1. Project name 

Project name that you and the team will use during the development.

 2. Creation date, created by, contact information 

Date of the document creation, your name, ways to contact you. 

 3. Revision number, revision reason, date 

If you edit or extend the specification later. 

4. Abbreviations 

If you plan to use any in the document.

5. Project scope 

Objects, business needs, goals, benefits. 

Status – whether it’s the development from scratch or extension of the existing product. 

6. Tech stack

Preferred technologies for the project, if any. Or the existing stack if the product already exists.

 7. Project functions 

Describe major functions (e.g. Feature 1 – description, Feature 2 – description, Feature 3 – description). 

 8. Planned start date. Planned Budget. 

If you have those defined. 

9. Other 

Anything you want to mention that falls out of the points above. 

10. To Be Determined List 

Collect a list of TBD (to be determined) points that remain in the documents so that you can track them to closure.  

With this template, you will have a clear and structured project description that you can pass along.
