  18. During the ‘starting up a project’ process, the project manager discusses the standard model for course development with the executive. The project manager then assesses how the Health and Safety Training Project will be delivered, including what products should be delivered in each stage.

    Is this an appropriate way to carry out the ‘plan the initiation stage’ activity, and why?

    • Yes, because the work of the initiation stage needs to be planned and approved, in the same way as other project work.
    • Yes, because the management controls for the initiation stage need to be defined and approved by the project board.
    • No, because subsequent stages are planned in the initiation stage as part of creating the project plan.
    • No, because the senior supplier is responsible for assessing the viability of the project approach.
  19. During stage 3, the team manager reports that the work to update the ‘corporate quality procedures’ has been completed and the product is ready to be delivered.

    What should project assurance do next?

    • Update the team plan to show that the work package is complete.
    • Check the work package and follow the procedure to deliver completed products.
    • Verify that all the products to be delivered by the work package are approved.
    • Update the stage plan to show the work package as completed.


    Here are three items of information relating to the ‘initiating a project’ process for the project.

    As part of which activity (A-F) should this information be recorded?

    Choose only one theme for each activity. Each theme can be used once, more than once, or not at all.
