As a project is completed, there should be a closure process in place to be sure that information is available to the organization in the future. It is helpful to ask team members and stakeholders what went well, what could have been improved and how well goals were met. A well – developed project plan will include an evaluation and closure process to be sure that the project completes this important final phase.
