2018 PM Guide: From Project Initiation to Completion
Project initiation is when most project managers get involved in a project for the first time. The project itself might have been talked about for months, and has probably spent time being scrutinized by senior management. Your leadership team might have seen several versions of the business case and finally they’ve made the decision to go ahead with this piece of work. That’s when a project manager normally gets involved, although sometimes project managers assist with preparing the business case too. Once that business case is approved the hard work really begins.
