Recognize the Situation

One reason for early termination is insufficient progress toward the project objective. Performance reporting may reveal:

  • Schedule delays or execution problems

  • Funding or resource consumption too high

  • Insufficient staff or other resources

  • Scope not achievable using available technologies and capabilities

Other reasons for ending projects relate to higher-level business considerations, such as:

  • Changes in overall business strategy

  • Shifts of priority to more urgent project or non-project work

  • Recognition that too many simultaneous projects are underway

  • Loss of funding or sponsorship
