To Do Now
There is no better way to learn than by doing, so print off a copy of the Project Definition template (Table 2.1) and start to complete it for your project.
As you fill it in ask yourself:
How much detail should you go into?
For the project you are about to start, who are you going to work with to develop the Project Definition?
How are you going to ensure they agree and commit to it?
The end result of the Project Definition should be a document that gives you enough information to really understand what the project is, and which gives your customer confidence that you really understand their needs.
If you are having problems completing the Project Definition, practise by thinking about a project you are going to do for yourself perhaps you will do some major DIY, have a special holiday, or want to start your own business. Try developing your own Project Definition.
