Create the Project Plan
PB needs detail on cost and time – these feed into the Bus Case. Stage costs/time needed before committing resources.
Project Plan may encompass Stage Plans (ie not separate)
Set up the Project Controls
To keep project under control – ensures that right decisions are made by the right people at the right time based on the delivery of the right information (frequency and timing).
Maybe verbal reports to PB but always have formal initiation and close.
Refine the Business Case
Ensures sufficient justification for the resource expenditure and that risks are acceptable or manageable.
Justification still needed – alternative is budget consumption by many small projects – an important project may now not have the budget to proceed.
Assemble the Project Initiation Documention
PB approve project on the basis of the PID – contains record of the info on which the decision to proceed was based and can be used to judge success/failure later.
