The project charter is finalized and signed off. A sufficient budget has been allocated to the project (for the next phase or for the entire project). The project is approved to proceed by the sponsor. A project manager / project lead is assigned. The tasks/activities are defined at a high level and resource requirements have been estimated. Required resources have been formally assigned to the project and have confirmed attendance at the kick-off meeting. Project Kick-off 14-Jan-09

Determine the meeting time and place. Create the meeting agenda and distribute it in the meeting invite along with any project documents the team should review prior to the meeting. Create the project presentation using key points from the charter and other project documentation. Create a team contact list. Create a project repository, e.g. a project sharepoint site. Create the project in PM2 for time tracking. Project Kick-off 14-Jan-09

5 At the Kick-off Meeting
Review the project presentation with the team. Pay close attention to the questions being asked. Some issues may be identified that require follow up (do you have the right people, are you missing representation from an area, are there important details that have not been identified). If possible, have the sponsor attend the meeting and provide details on the importance of the project to the University. Review the project framework (ITDDM) to ensure the team understands were the project is at and how it will progress. Provide the project code / name in PM2 and the link to the project repository. Determine how often the team will meet and determine the best day/time of the week to schedule the meetings. Project Kick-off 14-Jan-09

Schedule the team meetings. Follow up on the items identified at the kick-off meeting. Begin project execution. Project Kick-off 14-Jan-09
