The Planning Phase includes all work undertaken to develop the option determined to be the best solution (from the work undertaken during the initiation phase) to a point where it can be implemented. This is generally accomplished by:
- Developing work break down structure;
- Developing works schedule;
- Developing works budget;
- Developing the procurement schedule;
- Identifying all deliverables required including establishing and monitoring timeframes;
- Providing effective and controlled communication with all stakeholders;
- Conducting risk workshops; and
- Providing assistance in gaining all statutory approvals.
