End Stage in PRINCE2 Project Management - dummies

End Stage in PRINCE2 Project Management

By Nick Graham

Part of PRINCE2 For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

In PRINCE2 projects, End Stage work is done by the Project Manager towards the end of the stage, followed by the Project Board’s meeting to decide whether or not to continue.

Key: Keep things as simple as you can. Don’t write huge reports.

Decision at the end: Authorise the next stage, or stop the project?

  • Check that the current stage work is complete, or almost complete

  • Plan the next stage, updating the Project Plan as necessary

  • Update the Business Case and Risk Log to reflect the latest information

  • Produce a report on the current stage for the Project Board

  • Hold the End Stage meeting of the Project Board (End Stage Assessment)
