Starting up a Project
The main purposes of the Starting up a Project process is to create an overall understanding of the project, conduct a basic investigation in the justification of the project, prepare the related content, and allow it to be used for further investigation and planning in the Initiating a Project process.
Common Actions in Agile Environments:
- Prepare a simple vision statement for the project.
- Decide on the overall approach of the project.
- e.g. are we going to use Agile? If so, using which framework?
- what's our strategy about forming the releases? are we, for example, going to use Lean Startup for these strategies?
