Step 8: Close Out

* Close Out *

Involve Stakeholders - Involve all project participants and stakeholders in the close-out process.

Use a Checklist - Review the close-out checklist template to make sure all key items have been completed.

Solicit Feedback - Conduct a post-project survey to solicit feedback on the project from the project team, customers, and stakeholders who were well-acquainted with the management of the project.

Identify Lessons Learned - Convene a lessons learned session to promote the success of future projects.

Archive Data - Archive all project data in a central repository. Include best practices, lessons learned, and any other relevant project documentation. Formal data archives should be stored in compliance with US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) regulations.

Celebrate - Celebrate and reward project success.

Phased Close-Out - The project closing process is generally phased over a period of time, rather than being a single event. Depending on the project type, project close out can begin as deliverables are completed, iterations/phases closed, or at the end of the project. The project manager must ensure that the sponsor and steering committee understand and support the project closing process to reduce final project implementation risks.

Manage Resources - The project manager may face requests to release staff from the project team before all project closing tasks are finished. The project manager should anticipate these requests, considering both project goals and staff capabilities.

Confidentiality - Upon closing subcontractor contracts, consider the confidentiality of the contracts before potentially sharing with the client.
