Manage boundaries

The purpose of this competency is to achieve the goals of the boundaries process, i.e. to:

  • conclude a stage or tranche in a structured way;
  • prepare for the next tranche or stage.

Performance criteria

You must be able to:

  1. prepare for the closure of a stage or tranche of work
  2. review the previous stage or tranche
  3. review governance and plan delivery of the next stage or tranche based on previous performance
  4. submit documentation for approval of the next stage or tranche
  5. mobilise the next stage or tranche
  6. assure the quality of the process

The criteria for this process are very similar to those in the definition process and closure process.

In effect the manage boundaries process is a combined and reduced version of the definition and closure processes as applied to the beginning and end of stages and tranches.

  1. the goals of the process
  2. the typical activities that make up the process
  3. the context of the work and its impact on the process

  5. how to submit an authorisation request to the sponsor
