"Big business needs Unity of Direction combined with the Energy and Enthusiasm which comes from employees having freedom to do things their own way."
Peter Drucker




APPRAISAL, TRANSITION, AND CLOSURE
 
 
Project Wrap-Up includes three key activities:
Appraisal -- Evaluating the project's results and identifying improvements for next time.
Transition -- Moving things from the development project to the ongoing support (e.g. production, maintenance, etc.).
Closure -- The importance of cleaning out and taking time to celebrate.

Using a formal wrap-up process:

  • Facilitates continuous process improvement for the next effort via lessons learned.
  • Facilitates the effective transition to the ongoing program (production/maintenance) support.
  • Ensure that responsibility is formally shifted so team members are not continually pulled back in inappropriately.
  • Enables projects which must be suspended or canceled early to be left in a way that the work can be used if the project is revived.
  • Provides an emotional release from projects which are abandoned but not forgotten.
