Checklist #1—Initiating Phase
The Initiating Phase of the project is where it all starts. Key information is gathered, scoping is performed, and the project kick-off meeting is conducted. Complete these major tasks and you are ready to enter the project’s Planning Phase. These items are arranged in chronological order, but note that you may end up completing them in any order; the important thing is to do them all before proceeding to the next phase of the project.
