Initiating a project

Initiating a project | Setting up a project | Managing a project | Finalising a project

Project initiatives may originate directly from Government policy, such as Tasmania Together, or from an Agency's corporate and business unit planning processes, which in turn are driven by Government policy. Projects are usually justified in terms of corporate objectives and should be closely aligned to them.

In the case of large and/or complex projects and programs of projects, considerable time is spent in this initiation or business case development phase. Clear understandings of why the business case is being undertaken should be established in the initiation phase.

The resources provided in this toolkit include links to relevant:

  • Sections from the Tasmanian Government Project Management Guidelines
  • Fact sheets
  • Templates
  • Examples
  • Useful links
    plus any further resources that may be helpful
