Project closure takes place at the end of the project, on completion of the implementation phase. The role of the project team in the closing phase is integration of the various project components and tying up of any loose ends.
Depending on the nature of the project, this stage entails delivering a product, a set of reports, policies, functional infrastructure or functional systems to the client. Contingent to the project needs, necessary training is also provided to the relevant client-side counterparts. Feedback is solicited from the client on the project and the working relationship throughout the duration of the project.
Another important aspect of project closure is analysis. This involves looking back over the project successes and failures. Review meetings are carried out within the team and with the client to develop suggestions. These suggestions serve as provisions for making future projects more successful.
