Badge: Energizer


Project Phase Initiation

Approve the initiation of each major project phase and communicate it to all stakeholders. Base the approval of the initial phase on programme governance decisions. Approval of subsequent phases should be based on review and acceptance of the deliverables of the previous phase, and approval of an updated business case at the next major review of the programme. In the event of overlapping project phases, an approval point should be established by programme and project sponsors to authorise project progression.

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Gain approval and sign-off on the deliverables produced in each project phase from designated managers and customers of the affected business and IT functions.
  2. Base the approval process on clearly defined acceptance criteria agreed to by key stakeholders prior to work commencing on the project phase deliverable.
  3. Assess whether the project is on schedule, within budget and aligned with the agreed-upon scope. Assess identified variances and identify the impact on the project plan and realisation of expected benefits.
  4. Assess the project at agreed-upon major review points, and make formal ‘stop/go’ decisions based on predetermined critical success criteria.
