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?
John- I didn't find any citations or details on how BOSCARD came about.

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 .
Kevin,

Would also be interested if you find the article.
Thanks
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.

Drake - thanks for your response...

The term still feels a bit abstract though...
