Steps for closing the Project
Hello Everyone,

I am studying for my exam and I am failing in mocks with situation questions on what to do next.

I am trying to come up a list of activities on Closing the Project and I would like to ask you to review/correct it for me - acording to PMBOK.

Closing Activities order:
1. Ensure all project work is completed and obtain formal closure (financial, legal, administrative, Audit?)
2. Transfer the ownership of the deliverables (product, service or result) - knowledge transfer
3. Obtain final acceptance of the project deliverables
4. Prepare and Share Final Report
5. Complete Lessons Learned
6. Obtain feedback from relevant stakeholders
7. Archive Project Documents
8. Celebrate
8. Release the resources

How correct is this list according to what Project Managemetn teaches us?

Thank you,
Alvaro Couto

Interesting. I don't see that in Edition 6. What section did you find that in? I'm not challenging it whatsoever. I'm just wondering if there is more than in 4.7 Close Project or Phase, or they reorganized it.

Hello, you can find it in the Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep Book Page 50, the Eighth edition, that is aligned with the PMBOK fifth edition.
Not directly related to your question, but just about the entire exam question bank focuses on what to do next.

It may come down to the quality of the mock exams you are taking. Try Rita's Fast Track and also PrepCast.
Rita is the best book to refer ...

9th edition of Rita's book is for PMBOK 6th edition
One point that I have not seen in the responses is to release the project team.
