Parts of the Project Closing Statement
You are at the end of your project. Congratulations! But, there is still one more step to take before you are done. You need to create your project closing statement. The project closing statement basically is a summary of everything that you have done and the lessons that you have learned.
The goal of the project closing statement is to ensure that you point out the things that you did right and things that still need to be improved upon. This will also help you with future projects. These statements should be kept in a file and they should be organized by date. These can either be printed out and kept within a central folder or, you can fill out the forms online and keep them on your desktop, hard drive or network.
Each statement should have a checklist with similar headings. Generally, this includes the following: Project Name, ID Number, Project Leader, Executive Leader, Project Manager, Start/End Date, and Date Submitted (when the form was filled out and submitted to the project leader).
There are basically four parts to the project closing statement: the Checklist, Completion Statement, Success of the Project, and Lessons Learned.
