This checklist helps the project manager and other stakeholders ensure the plan and high-level design are truly complete before officially signing off on the design and planning phase of a project. Though this form is designed for Information Technology use, it can easily be adapted for use on other types of projects.
What this is
A checklist for officially completing the High-Level Design and Planning phase of an Information Technology project. (Note: The form can easily be adapted for use on other types of projects.)
Why it's useful
The goal is to ensure that critical activities have truly been completed with the appropriate planning, assessment of user and IT staff impacts, and reviews by sponsor and team members. The form specifically calls out where executive/sponsor-level review and signoff is needed.
The How section below specifically describes how to sequence offline team and sponsor reviews with an efficient final "team meeting approval," while sanity-checking and acknowledging together that the right things have been done in this phase and it is acceptable to move to the next phase of development.
How to use it
Include the Project Manager, Program Manager, Sponsors, and program team members (as required).
