As Project Manager you should always be prepared for the worst! Your sponsor may any day enter your office and ask, what will the consequences be if we close this project tomorrow? It’s no secret that I firmly believe in the importance of being prepared for worst case scenarios hitting my project. If you are a best-in-class Project Manager, you would always have this template filled out for your project scenarios: “Continue AS-IS”, “Limited Stop” and “Full Stop”. What would you do if you are asked to support a management decision to cancel your project? This template is a good starting point for supporting such a decision with a much facts as possible. I have put this template to the test in several real-world projects – and with good decisions made most times!
