Q: As a project manager, you are preparing for the initial launch of a product and further product updates in the near future. Does the initial launch need a closing process and why?
Q: As a project manager, you are getting ready for a product’s first release as well as further upgrades. Does the first launch need a closure procedure, and if so, why?
- This launch does need a closing process because all projects have a closing process for milestones.
- This launch does need a closing process because the first launch is a milestone that will not be re-addressed.
- This launch does not need a closing process because initial launches can happen multiple times.
- This launch does not need a closing process because that requires more work for the project manager.
Explanation: For this reason, the closure process is essential to guarantee that the first launch is conducted properly and to provide a foundation for further product upgrades or stages. Rather than focusing on making the project manager’s job more difficult, the focus should be on ensuring that the approach to project management is both organized and efficient.
