Evaluating and Closing Projects
Live online (VILT)
2 x 3.5 hour sessions
In Person Instructor-led
1 day session
Most projects never formally close. They are either abandoned when cut; or peter out as the work draws to a close and people transfer off the project and onto the next one. Yet, Closure is an important phase of the project and, when done poorly (or not at all!) can lead to a raft of headaches down the line.
It involves important administrative closure activities (like discharging contracts, notifying stakeholders and returning assets) and conducting a Post Implementation Review to evaluate the project and capture lessons learned for future projects.
The majority of this module is spent undertaking an interactive, educational and highly entertaining project management simulation The Pitch, set in the world of 1960s New York. The simulation is an opportunity to bring together the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course and to draw parallels and insights relevant to project management in the real world.
