Update Project Documentation
"Despite the celebration and good cheer, the work must continue, beginning with an update to the project documentation. Because there is cleanup and additional work to be done, this involves generating another version of the documentation for future work. Be sure to capture all standards that have been defined through the rescue effort. Also, task actuals should be kept in an estimating repository for future projects."
"Future iterations of the initiative should begin to see the gradual elimination of the project rescue role, along with any other specific roles that were created for the intervention. The project rescue is officially completed when these roles are copmletely phased out or handed over to the permanent project team. Information and documentation should continue to be shared with these resources in the event that a project rescue needs to be invoked again."
