I found this post whilst searching for more information on BOSCARD. I've taught it for a few years now as part of an Introduction to Project Management course. It was the simplest example of a project brief/TOR that I could find at the time. Now I'm trying to write an article on it and I was trying to research the model a bit.
I can find several references to it being used in Cap Gemini in the 1980s - but no first-hand accounts, or reports from Cap Gemini. I've searched for papers and journals - nothing. Nor can I find anything at PMI.org or APM.org.uk.
Does anyone have any citations or details of how BOSCARD came about, other than anecdotal information?
Would also be interested if you find the article.
George, I guess this is the lengthiest question I have ever seen here
Kevin, thanks for sharing this info. which is not available in the PMBOK guide nor in PRINCE2 themes
George, I have never heard of this term; but the terms which make up the acyonym yes.
Kevin, pleases post the link. I would like to learn more how this is used as a strategic planning tool.
The term still feels a bit abstract though...
The BOSCARD is a strategic planning tool used to give the terms-of-reference for new projects. The acronym stands for background, objectives, scope, constraints, assumptions, risks and deliverables.
I read a nice article about how to use it and trying to find it for you .
