PMP®️ Domain #5: Closing (7%)

The Project Management Professional (PMP) is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.


Project management can be overwhelming sometimes. However, following these steps can help you to manage your team effectively in complex tasks.

The final domain of PMP®️ is number five, Closing. A project is said to be closed when the team(s) hand over the final project to the customer and communicates to the stakeholders about the completion and releases resources.

Allowing the team to evaluate and maintain a document before moving on to the next step is an important step in every project life cycle. This prevents the team from repeating previous mistakes and helps to make robust processes and effective teams. Project closure is generally the stage of formal completion of all deliverables and, later, the transfer of those same deliverables to the internal or external customers.
