Project HEADWAY: Getting Closure: Knowing Your Project Is Really Done
What we understand as a project is clear and well defined: a clear objective, a set of related activities and a defined start and end date. Except when the project doesn't it. Getting project closure is important, but also can be elusive. Customers and sponsors resist closing out projects for a variety of reasons: because they are unsatisfied with the results, because they have further plans, or because there is more work to be done. At the same time, project managers and teams struggle with uncertainty, ambiguity and stress.
It doesn't have to be this way. Successfully managing the completion and close-out of a project is an important, but often overlooked, part of project management. Learn the strategies necessary to effectively negotiate the successful completion your projects. Explore strategies to ensure your projects do complete, and identify the critical success factors involved in managing the transition and handover of project results. Join Mark Mullaly on our upcoming webinar and help ensure that your projects get closure.
