What are the standard entry and exit criteria of each project management process?
I need to setup a checklist for my project managers or team leaders to follow it in our process.
Can you please contribute and help me to build it?

Hi Sonali,

I wish to prepare entry & exit criteria checklist for below processes.

Direct & Manage Project work
Validate Scope
Plan Quality Management
Control Quality
Plan Human Resource Management
Plan Communications Management
Manage communications
Control Communications
Control Risks
Plan Procurement management
Control Procurements
Manage Stakeholders Engagement
Manage Project Team

You have to choose which project management approach you will follow. For example, if you follow the PMI way then you have to take the PMBOK as your guide and acting as Sonali stated above. After that, you have to define your project life cycle process. It will determine how much project management process and activities you will use. After that, you can decide about inputs and outputs and resources needed.

As we know, each and every project is different and need to adopt some specific processes based on type of project and other circumstances. some times it can be depend on organisation mode also (Projectized or Functionalized or Matrix).

As per the PMBOK guide, you can simply look at the Inputs and outputs of each of these processes

For Example - In order to Direct and Manage Project work , Any changes that you incorporate should be Accepted by the Change Control Board , There should be a baseline Project Management Plan against which you will execute your project which will include all your other plans as subsidiary plans
So these are two of your inputs or entry criteria.
You also need a Schedule baseline and a Cost Baseline
This would mean that you have a detailed schedule and you have sufficient information on what you are doing, when you are doing and at what cost

The Direct and Manage Project work will produce deliverable , which will be all your different documents like Solution Architecture Design , Detailed Design , Testing Artifacts - Installation and Operational Qualifications, User Acceptance Testing Documentation . When those deliverable are signed and accepted by your customer , in other words
The scope has been validated , You have exited Direct and Manage Project work and entered into the Validate Scope Activity.

Any process that has a Prefix called as "PLAN" also produces an associated artifact which has a suffix of "PLAN" . Example - You need a Human Resource Management Plan as you exit the "Plan Human Resource Management" process.

I would strongly suggest Looking at the Inputs and outputs of all processes above and that will definitely give you your entry exit criteria.

In Summary , You need to have a plan for these knowledge areas in your project.
They can all be in Your Project Management Plan as headings.

Scope Management
Time Management
Cost Management
Quality Management
Human Resource Management
Communications Management
Risk Management
Procurement Management
Stakeholder Management

Once you have the plans in place, then you execute your plans using Cost Forecasts, Project Schedules, Deliverable
