So, to the last of the PRINCE2 processes: Closing a Project. Closure is easy to follow in PRINCE2 if you keep in mind that it’s an orderly shut down. The closure will usually be the planned one at the end of the project, but it may also be a ‘crash stop’ (premature close) if, for example, something goes badly wrong or someone in authority decides that the project isn’t needed any more. Either way, planned close or premature close, it’s an orderly and conscious process, not a fizzling out of the project.
