Finishing your assigned tasks is only part of bringing your project to a close. In addition, you must do the following (see Chapter 15 for discussions on each of these points):
¡ Get your clients' approvals of the final results.
¡^ Close all project accounts (if you've been charging time and money to special project accounts).
¡ Help people move on to their next assignments.
¡ Hold a postproject evaluation to recognize project achievements and to discuss lessons you can apply to the next project. (At the very least, make informal notes about these lessons and how you'll use them in the future.) See Chapter 15 for how to prepare, design, and conduct a postproject evaluation.
