Your entire project has some element of iteration associated with it, simply because sometimes you ' l l find yourself going back and back on a given step in the project. Perhaps the best example of this is when the scope gets widened for some reason. The iterative nature of the process requires that you revisit the scope document, refine accordingly, and then get it re-signed by the project sponsor. Also, during project execution, the process of visiting team members to find out the status for a given task will be highly repetitive.
Almost all elements of the project planning process—from initial project design to scope approval to turnover (closure) of the project' s deliverables to the owners—may require an iterative execution.
