Determine Return on Investment (ROI)
Determining the Financial justification is the most important step in Initiation phase. With out it there is no funding and hence no Project. So I not just limit myself to ROI but use different other financial evaluations as well. And make sure that the numbers are a realistic and achievable.
There are some Competitive advantages that not necessarily be converted to numbers at the initiation phase but will have a positive impact on your business and brand value. These can be utilized to further strengthen your business case.
Plan Project
Planning is BACK BONE of any Project. Until and unless proper Scope identification and Risk analysis is conducted the whole team will be engaged in Fire fighting through out the Project Execution. I ensure that the whole team is involved as early as possible in the Planning process and all key stakeholders are taken onboard to avoid Scope creep and unanticipated risks.

Track Project Progress
Tracking a project progress is critical for early identification and resolution of problems. But for early identification proper indicators must be developed at the Planning phase so that any slight deviation will immediately indicate that some thing is not going as per plan. For large projects its very difficult to have a live update on each task that is being carried on by the team but with Proper plan and KPIs developed any deviation will immediately result in you a as PM noticing the deviation.

Identify Lessons Learned
Lesson learned are the continual improvement part of any Organization and Project Team. I carry out the Project Review sessions with all teams involved and the lessons learned are translated into an action list so that the improvements are not just identified but implemented as well.
Review Resource Performance
Reviewing resource performance is a task that is considered by some Project Managers not important when the Project is successful. I believe and practice that for sustaining excellence and improving on it, its necessary that performance review and utilization of resources must be analyzed resulting in identification of performance boosters and performance suppressors. These factors once identified can be utilized for the Future Projects success.
