The two-day Statement of Work (SOW) course provides detailed instructions on the conversion of work or service requirements into highly effective SOWs. Issues of structure (organization of information) and the use of (English) language throughout a SOW are examined in considerable detail. A high quality template/guide is provided for the specification of work or services, with examples. The training is strongly workshop oriented throughout. The techniques of SOW writing which are taught have been used to great effect in scenarios which include acquisition, supply, product definition (both hardware and software including the provisioning of services), enterprise internal projects, business analysis and engineering projects of diverse types, large and small.
