Examine Work Done
"By this point in the phase, the rescue champion should have developed a good understanding of the following:
- Business Drivers Why the project was launched
- Project Objectives What the people paying for the project are expecting for their investment
- Key decision makers How their performance is being measured by their bosses
- Acceptance criteria How the business determines that the work is completed and acceptable
- Project Charter Overall project resources, timelines, and deliverable contents"
"You also need to review all the status reports, issue logs, and minutes of meetings to get a perspective on what has been completed and how it is being perceived in the organization. The rescue team also needs to understand the outstanding tasks and the associated effort to complete them. Begin to form your conclusions at this stage."
