Starting Up a Project (SU) PROCESS

Written by Andy Trainer – Thu 12 Jul 2007

PRINCE2® PROCESSES – Starting Up a Project (SU)

The purpose of the Starting up a Project process is to ensure that the prerequisites for Initiating a Project are in place by answering the question: do we have a viable and worthwhile project?

This process is triggered by a mandate and is designed to establish the following:

  • There is a business justification for initiating the project (documented in an outline Business Case)
  • All the necessary authorities exist for initiating the project
  • Sufficient information is available to define and confirm the scope of the project (in the form of a Project Brief)
  • The various ways the project can be delivered are evaluated and a project approach selected
  • Individuals are appointed who will undertake the work required in project initiation and/or will take significant project management roles in the project
  • The work required for project initiation is planned (documented in a Stage Plan)
  • Time is not wasted initiating a project based on unsound assumptions regarding the project’s scope, time scales, acceptance criteria and constraints.

Products produced during this process are as follows:

  • Role descriptions
  • Daily Log
  • Lessons Log
  • Outline Business Case
  • Project Product Description
  • Project Approach
  • Project Brief
  • Stage Plan

The PRINCE2 processes are covered in detail on our PRINCE2 Foundation training and PRINCE2 Practitioner training courses in Brighton, Sussex.
