The Initiation Phase in the Project Management Life Cycle

Q: How can we start up a project and ensure that we do all of the right things, before we start the detailed planning phase?

A: We’re glad you’ve asked, as our project management methodology describes in depth, all of the phases, activities and tasks required to start up a new project, during the project management life cycle. First you need to create a business case and perform a feasibility study, to make sure that you define the basis upon which you project is kicked off. Then you need to take the most important step by creating the Project Charter document, which explains the vision, objectives and scope of your project. Then set up a project office and appoint your project team. And finally, make sure you review the success of the steps you have taken, before you kick-off the next phase in the project management life cycle.
