PRINCE2® PROCESSES – Controlling a Stage (CS)
The purpose of the Controlling a Stage process is to assign work to be done, monitor such work, deal with issues, report progress to the Project Board, and take corrective actions to ensure that the stage remains within tolerance.
For each stage, the following cycle of activities will be covered:
- Authorise a Work Package
- Review Work Package Status
- Receive Completed Work Packages
- Review the stage status
- Report highlights
- Capture and examine issues and risks
- Escalate issues and risks
- Take correction action
The continued assessment of risk and issues during this process is important.
Products used or produced during this process:
- Work packages, detailing the products to be produced must be agreed between Project and Team Manager.
- Quality register – checked for approved products produced
- Configuration item records – updated with the latest status of products
- Checkpoint reports – reviewed in preparation for Highlight reports
- Highlight Reports (time-driven control) produced by the Project Manager, sent to the Project Board advising on progress information.
- Issue reports and Issues register in which all issues are captured and examined.
- Daily log – used to informally manage any risks and issues
- Lessons Log – updated with any lessons learned during the stage
- Updated Risk register.
- The Stage Plan which is regularly updated with actual achievements.
- An Exception Report may also need to be created if an issue is forecast to exceed stage tolerances.
