Project Closure Report
Closing a project is not as easy as it seems.
  1. First ensure that the project closure criteria have been fully satisfied and that there are no outstanding items remaining. 
  2. Identify a release plan for the project deliverables, documentation, supplier contracts and resources.
  3. Initiate a communication plan to inform all project stakeholders that the project has now been closed.
Post Implementation Review
Review overall success by undertaking a Post Implementation Review.
This review helps you to determine

  • whether the project delivered the business benefits,
  • met the customer's requirements and
  • remained within scope and budget.
  • whether the project conformed to the management processes identified, such as Change Management and Quality Management.
