Initiation Phase


The Initiation Phase of a Project is about identifying the base fundamental and foundational aspects of the project.

Project Manager Usage Context

Activities in this phase include discovery of what the project is about. 

Key items to identify include, budget, schedule and scope constraints, project team members, project sponsor, project owner, project steering groups and governing committees as well as a skeleton framework of what project phases and activities will be undertaken over the course of the project.

Comments / Tips

Recommend having a project team kick-off meeting once all the various key aspects have been identified to help get everyone aligned to the project fundamentals as well as the base framework of how the project will be run.
