Defining exit criteria
Network:1040



I think defining exit criteria at the beginning of milestones improves the team's ability to meet the target dates. Also, exit criteria should map back to the vision and goals. The other way is not to have an exit criteria, where you will depend on opinion and team members urge to figure out when you're done. My understanding is that without exit criteria the team must depend on their subjective opinions which is just waste of time.

What is your opinion? If you have an exit criteria, what do you include in your criteria?

Exit criteria is inside the validate scope process. I mean, when you validate the scope you are performing exit criteria. To do that you have to create project requirement specification with the associate acceptance criteria.

Anish,

Often I have see the large part (if not all) of the exit criteria in the Quality management. Leaving exit criteria to opinion is risky!

Thanks Vincent, I agree with you on this.

If the project team is serious about quality, exit criteria should be part of the planning process.

This is my opinion.

Anish,

In a construction contract, exist criteria is predefined before agreement are being signed. More than often, this criteria relates more to quality assurance & quality control for work end-result prior to work should proceed to next phase of work. For instance foundation work to sub-structure work.

Sergio is right that this process shall contribute important element in validate scope process. While I am also in the opinion that exist criteria apply also in Control Quality & Control Procurement process prior to qualify for interim acceptance deliverable or closed procurement.

Agreed with Vincent that exist criteria is not a matter of opinion but rigorously predefined while formulating contract for final acceptance of deliverable or work.

I am agreed with your point that without exist criteria, the work is a waste.
