Documentation is a set of documents provided on paper, or online, or on digital or analog media, such as audio tape or CDs. Examples are user guides, white papers, on-line help, quick-reference guides. Paper or hard-copy documentation has become less common.   A SCOPE document is one of those fundamental documents that define and guide any major project. As a technical writer you may be asked to write one, in close coordination with the project management (or your private client). In terms of its strategic abstraction, the SCOPE comes right after the VISION document.
