Closing the Project
Project Closure Plan. Another plan? Geez. I know, but this one is really important. It details the conditions to determine whether all the deliverables have been met. In this instance, closure called for an internal audit by my team to guarantee that the deliverables had been fulfilled. The Closure Plan also specified that our Sponsor must audit our work for quality, proof of deliverables, and completion of the SOW. Finally, this plan had a formal sign-off and payment for services rendered. (Aahh, the good part frosty beverages all around.)
Once my client was happy with our plans, risk mitigation, and quote for completing the project, they gave us the green light to move forward. My team and I followed our Operations Plan with a few exceptions, and we ultimately transformed their lousy network into a speedy, reliable network I'm proud of.
