As we said elsewhere, when a project goes into Disengagement, the project team and the project sponsor are informed that the project is in Disengagement. This means that the next shipment and the project are in jeopardy. It has a Disengagement Interval (DI) of 1 working day before it is stopped and when all project resources are formally Disengaged if the project Engagement Commitment stays broken.

When project disengagement is triggered, firstly threaten to disengage resources from the project and down tools. The threat normally works by itself. If it does not work after the Disengagement Interval, you disengage resources from the project and down tools. The way you do this, is that you send an e-mail to your project team confirming that the project Engagement Commitment has been broken, the Disengagement Interval is ended and the project has officially halted. The project now has one working day before it is finally stopped. This is done to ensure project resources are not idle and not wasted on projects that are not engaged with and targeted towards the professional delivery of its objectives.

Request, in the e-mail, that the owners of various project personnel and project resources allow the rest of the business day for the project close down activity. Confirm to the owners of project personnel and project resources that your project releases these resources for other projects, at todays close of business, if the problem is not resolved by todays close of business. Thus your project is allowing two full business days, a Disengagement Interval plus one day to close down the project, to resolve the problem. Confirm in the email that all the project resources, personnel or equipment, will be available to other projects tomorrow AM.
