During the Setup stage you will define the change and the proposed benefits, confirm the feasibility of the project as well as costs and benefits. The business sponsor is responsible for gaining sign off for the Setup stage and will agree the change proposal for passage from the Define to the Survey phase. This agreement acknowledges that there is a project challenge to address and benefits to explore as well as agreeing to fund the Survey phase. So, the business sponsor funds, or is responsible for funding, both the Define and Survey phases.

Once you have completed a survey of the landscape for the project and you have completed the setup plan, delivery plan and release plan then it is the responsibility of the business to review these plans and to sign off the end of the Survey and end of the Setup stage. With this agreement you are in receipt of the acknowledgement to begin the Deliver stage of the project. From here, the project manager is responsible for the delivery of the project.

However, there are still sign off Commitments appropriate for other team members. The delivery of the project will present a series of developments which are reviewed and signed off by the business. The developments join into shipments for the purposes of deployment into specific release environments. The shipments are reviewed and signed off by the business. Finally, the shipments will be combined into a fully deployable solution for release and operation on the live environment. The solution will be reviewed and signed off by the release manager. This is about as radical as you can get in improving project management signoff scenarios. Now, Let us improve your project delivery stages, for ever.
