PRINCE2 Project Management Project Closure

By Nick Graham

Part of PRINCE2 For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

The work at this point in a PRINCE2 project is done by the Project Manager towards the end of the last stage to prepare for the Project Board meeting which confirms closure.

Key: Double-check everything’s done, including any final testing.

Decision at the end: Is everything done and can you close the project?

  • Check everything is complete or, in the case of premature close, that as much as possible has been salvaged from the project to minimise wastage

  • Consider work needed in the organisation after the project (Follow-on Actions) including Post Project Review to measure benefits delivery

  • Report on the project, giving final cost, time, and quality information and commenting on the achievement of objectives

  • Consider and pass on the lessons learned (good and bad) from this project
