Validate the Project Objective

Validate the project objective with the project sponsor before continuing with scope planning and other projects. Show the objective statement to the sponsor and other stakeholders to probe for potential misunderstandings about the project. Work to clarify the details and to test interpretations, so you can correct any omissions or errors prior to detailed project definition and planning. The project objective is merely a restatement of the initial top-down goal, not a firm commitment, so ensure that the result of this validation is only a mutual agreement on the project goals.
