Closing the Project

In the final process of the project, you have successfully fulfilled the goals of the project and it's now complete. Before you move on to the next project, it's a good idea to capture the knowledge you gained from this one. When closing the project, you do the following:

Identify lessons learned. Work with your project team and conduct a "postmortem" meeting to learn what went well and what could be improved. Create a project template. Save the project plan along with tasks, duration metrics, task relationships, resource skills, and the like, so the next time you or someone else manages a similar project, your wheel will not need to be reinvented.

For more information about closing the project, see Chapter 28, "Standardizing Projects Using Templates."
