Why do Project Kick Off Meetings Matter?
Have you ever been involved in a project where the kick off meeting fell victim to the delete key? The project kick off meeting is often referred to as the most important meeting held during a project. Not only is it the first time the entire project team gathered, it is a great opportunity for a project manager to gain commitment from the project team and set the stage for project success.

Panel presentation and discussion format:
The Project Initiation Phase is the 1st phase in the Project Management Life Cycle. Here you start a project by defining its objectives, scope, purpose and deliverables. You'll also secure project resources and gain approval to move on to the next phase. The PCMC is building a repository of resources corresponding to the Project Management Life Cycle. You can access the tools and templates related to Project Initiation here.
