Before the gate closes
Planning for the next phase
- Has a baseline plan been prepared for the next major phase
- Is the overall status of the project acceptable?
- Is it consistent with the original project goals?
- And have acceptable management tolerances been set?
- Has a risk analysis of the next phase been conducted?
- Is the planned use of the technology still sound?
- What major resources will be required?
- How much will the next phase cost
- And who must authorize the budget?
