Well done, you’ve almost reached the end. The project life cycle’s final phase is closing the project. This ties up loose ends, making sure everyone’s happy with the outcomes, and formally recognizing that the project is complete. It also provides the opportunity to unpick, review, and evaluate the whole project to identify strengths and areas for improvement.
Bringing closure to a project is important and beneficial, as it can inform decisions and strategies to streamline and improve future projects. This will not only help meet future targets but will make your job as a project manager easier and more efficient, too.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
• Identify what project closing should include
• Understand the impact of not closing a project
• Close a project successfully
Why take this course?
Getting a project to this stage is hard work, so jeopardizing all the valuable time and resources used by not closing it correctly would be neglectful. Seasoned project managers and those new to project management will benefit from taking this course. It highlights the pitfalls of not completing this phase and guides you through the “how-to” of closing your project.
