What is a Scope Management Plan (SMP)?
Like any plan, a scope management plan is a set of defined processes that are used ensure that the project includes all the necessary tasks for a successful project. 
The SMP focuses on defining how project scope is explained, developed, structured, verified with the customer and managed.
By using a scope management plan, project managers can define and map their project, so it remains within the agreed-upon scope. 
The scope management plan helps project managers better allocate project resources in such a manner that the project can finish on time, within budget and with the quality expected by stakeholders.
As we learned in class, project scope management is about:

Planning the      process to define the work that must be done over the course of the      project,
Controlling and      monitoring those processes,
Documenting and      tracking to avoid scope creep when approving or disapproving project changes,
Closing,      including an audit of deliverables and assessing the outcome against the      plan.
