A comprehensive PMO Framework is critical to guide a project successfully through its lifecycle, from beginning to end. A PMO Framework we have used with clients has 4 project phases: Concept, Initiation, Delivery and Close.
Having a clear project methodology, processes, and tools and templates enable project managers to guide their teams through the project phases. An easy and frequently used PM tool is their Checklist. They can refer to this tool many times during the day to make sure they are doing all the critical work needed during the project phase in which they find themselves.
Key project activities during the first phase of a project, Concept Phase, are listed in our Project Management Checklist below.
Although the Concept Phase involves a lot of work, it is worth spending the time and effort and is critical to setting your project up for success.
Are there any other activities you recommend in the first phase of a project?
